What are you planning to do
with the data?
Right now? Not a lot. With enough data, it would enable people to do
things like list all the FOOs within N distance of place M, given the
addresses of M and the FOOs.
How are you
going to prove
that you didn't nick it from streetmap?
Streetmap are as welcome to look at the source code as you are. I've
checked the code for Geography::NationalGrid too, to make sure that's
not doing anything naughty.
The real reason I did this is because people talked about it and there
was some vague muttering about registering a domain, but no-one DID
anything. I thought "ooh, that might be useful", so did it.
