Open data

We publish various open data feeds for the use of the public and other organisations. Find out about our Open Data Strategy.

All spatial data will be in KML format unless otherwise stated. KML is a format for the exchange of geographic information. KMZ is a compressed version of KML. KML files can be viewed directly in Google Earth (Windows, Mac or Linux) or loaded into Google Maps (web).

Unless stated otherwise open data feeds are released under the Open Government Licence
