IGN Spain open data for non-commercial use, this is a terrific start.
 (IGN are the closest Ordnance Survey moral equivalent here)
 It's worth looking at this alongside the recent study on the
 social-economic benefits of participation in data sharing
 infrastructure in Catalunya for a sense of the policy progress towards
 public geodata in Spain (at least, in parts of it!).

 Good news, everyone!

 I think I must be dreaming today. This is too good news to be true.

 An Order of Ministry was issued yesterday:


 Basically, it is the data policy for the geo information made by the
 spanish national mapping agency (IGN). And it looks very, very nice.

 I really have to discuss the wording with a local lawyer. As far as I
 understand it, some of the data is available on an attribution-only basis;
 the whole rest is available for non-commercial uses.

 Anyway, this is still good news even if the data is for non-commercial
 uses. Take that, NMA's with restrictive licesing! :-P

 Cheers all,
