We hear a lot about "#dashboards"; we were even promised sight of one, back in March* - though we've not seen it yet.

But what are they, in reality?

Well, for starters, we know quite a bit about @NHSEngland's 'dashboard(s)': back in March, @MattHancock gave it powers to DEMAND confidential patient information from care providers*, for (broadly defined) "#COVID19 purposes"...

...and we know @NHSEngland's hoovering up *at least* 70 different datasets into its #DataStore (the list at data.england.nhs.uk/covid-19/ is no longer comprehensive due to the controversial contents of some of the datasets).

Two big announcements today from @GeospatialC:

● release of UPRNs/USRNs under OGL gov.uk/government/new…

● 10-year Public Sector Geospatial Agreement with OS gov.uk/government/new…

Good or bad news for #opendata and the UK's #geospatial strategy?

The "Open MasterMap" products and APIs mentioned in today's announcement will go live in summer 2020, so there's no #opendata you can download right away.

We don't yet have full specs either. For example OS is still validating its proposal for the Open USRN dataset.
