Our GeoVation neighbourhood challenge saw a host of people submitting ideas on how they could transform neighbourhoods in Great Britain. We were delighted at the quality and scope of the ideas entered using Ordnance Survey products or services in the solution. A short-list of ideas has now been chosen by the GeoVation judging panel and teams have been invited to develop their ideas at our GeoVation Camp, 18-20 May, at Ordnance Survey head office in Southampton. You can read all about the shortlisted ideas here.
