Hmmmm. I’ve been thinking.
Many thanks to those who responded to my experiment with spreadsheets (see yesterday’s post). People clearly think that they are a Good Idea, and I daresay if I posted up a collection of them I would get quite a few takers. I’m sure its OK for an individual to generate the data from CanalPlan and format it for personal use, but me giving away the data without permission is something I wouldn’t do. So before going any further I have contacted Nick at CanalPlan to get his view on how far I can take this. This is what I did with the original CanalOmeters and they kindly consented to me giving them away with an attribution to CanalPlan. I’m sure you will agree that CanalPlan is the most amazing piece of work, freely available to all, and I have to respect their rights. With hindsight I should probably have contacted them before making yesterday’s post.
