This data is completely open and free. 26. Value of open data:Snapshot of some works at NEC 27. Quality of OSM DataThe analysis shows that OSM informationis fairly accurate: on average within about6 m of the position recorded by the OS,and with approximately 80% overlap ofmotorway objects between the twodatasets. In the space of four years, OSMhas captured about 29% of the area ofEngland.(Haklay, 2010) 28. Reduces data collection and updatecost (Synergy) 29.
