How are you using Ordnance Survey Linked Data?

I might have mentioned (a few times) that the new look Ordnance Survey linked data site is now live. A question I ask from time to time is:

1) Are you using the data, and if so what for (if you don’t mind saying)?

2) Even if you aren’t actively using the data are you linking to it?

Please comment below if you have anything you’d like to share. Thank you in advance!

    Thanks for an evening of enlightenment. I hate structured learning so your series of examples on using SPARQL was much more fun.

    I have a project. Berkshire (as was) now consists of abutting Unitary Authority Wards. Ramblers have Footpath Secretaries who each have a bunch of wards to patrol – so to speak. If someone reports a problem with a footpath and gives the easting and northing on a map (I can capture that already), how can I determine exactly which UA Ward the problem falls in? Most things I have tried get me close to the answer but not close enough. SPARQL looks like it might have the right answer if I could compose the right question.

    Wish I’d discovered the new OS site sooner.
