Map data for all Camden operated council estates

Kaveh Kordestani made this Rhyddid Gwybodaeth request to Camden Borough Council

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

Gwrthodwyd y cais gan Camden Borough Council.

To the London Borough of Camden,
Most Camden owned/operated council estates have a green signpost with a map affixed outside them at a prominent location. You can view an example here: <https://municipaldreams.files.wordpress....>

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I would like to request Geographic Information System (GIS) data of the polygons used to generate these maps, or, if this is not possible, PDF or similar file format files of all the maps that are signposted. I understand that the Council currently releases point based data about overall estates on their data open portal.

Furthermore, under The Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2015, I would like to use such data under the Open Government Regulations v3 (OGLv3), available at <https://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/...>. I would like to integrate such data into the online mapping initiative “OpenStreetMap”, used by many services including the Council directly on certain pages.[1][2][3][4]

To the information team,
Thank you for your acknowledgment. Unfortunately, I have now noticed it appears to be erroneous. 20 days from the 11 April would be the first of May, i.e. today.
I understand that it is easy for this mistake to be made and am happy to wait an additional 11 days for my request.

If I am in anyway incorrect I would be happy for my errors to be highlighted.

Kind regards,
Kaveh Kordestani
