Virendra Sharma – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Virendra Sharma on 2016-07-11.

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what the estimated value is of maps held by her Department.

George Eustice

Core Defra held a full set of hard copy Ordnance Survey Landranger maps. There are 204 maps in a full Landranger set.

The approximate second-hand sale value of all Core Defra hard copy maps is £1000.

Most of the mapping data that Defra uses is in electronic format.

Mapping data created by Defra, such as noise maps or maps of air quality, are made available as open data, without charge. As such, market value is difficult to ascertain.
