Digital maps can help provide accurate planning information and make the work of local councils more efficient. In this webinar the Ordnance Survey (OS) will provide an overview and demo of how PSGA members can take OS data from the OS Data Hub and use it in free GIS software (QGIS) to create a simple map to help you get started.
