This is an exciting opportunity for a high calibre researcher to work on
research into improving the utility of Open Street Map (OSM) data for
government and industry use, particularly in Great Britain.
Working with the Radius Studio product of our project partners, 1Spatial
(www.1spatial.com), you will explore rule-based processing firstly to make a
broad assessment of the quality of OSM data; to identify and flag errors;
and to fix errors where possible and project the data to create a repurposed
dataset for Great Britain. In addition you will work on building use cases;
interacting with the Open Street Map community; developing a community for
the project to give feedback on the outputs and the utility of the quality
assessment results, including developing the project web site & data
Candidates should either hold, or shortly be due for completion of a PhD (or
equivalent) in a relevant discipline; or an MSc (or equivalent) plus
significant relevant research experience within academia, industry or
Government. We are also looking for a record of research publications in
relevant area(s), good communication skills and evidence of the ability to
conduct research independently. Familiarity with Open Street Map data and
its quality and/or the Radius Studio package are advantageous.
