Inspirational Uses

We know that as more and more datasets are uploaded to the datastore the possibility for creative uses like visualisations and apps increases. We want to make sure that everyone knows about the good things that happen when government releases its data.

So if you have done something with our data that you would like us to shout about please let us know by emailing and we will feature it here on the inspirational uses page. Then we can get twittering about it and hopefully encourage more public agencies across London to free their data. The more we can showcase by example the better.

Applications are shown below in descending date order. Click on the title to view the full details and to vote or comment on the use.

Excel Mapping Template for London Boroughs, and Wards

Have you ever wanted to create a quick thematic map of London but lacked the GIS skills or software to do it yourself?

These free mapping tools from the GLA Intelligence Unit allows the user to input their own data to create an instant map that can be copied over into Word or another application of your choice. The user can also copy over the legend, and add labels.

The template allows the user to select either 4 or 5 ranges, and it even has a function to change the colours on the map (default colours are blue).
