The Forestry Commission has formally launched a DataDownload service. This service provides free and open access to FC spatial data and enables users of geographic information systems (GIS) to download spatial datasets directly from its website. For further information please see http://www.forestry.gov.uk/newsrele.nsf/AllByUNID/8FE4CE477ECB43A680257937004E3232
On entering the DataDownload site (http://www.forestry.gov.uk/datadownload), you will be made aware of the FC's Terms and Conditions. New users must register by entering their name, e-mail address and one or two other details. This is necessary to meet the OS's licencing requirements.
