Geovation - an Ordnance Survey initiative is all about experimenting and developing ideas using location information and innovation. Location is everywhere, and our mission is to expand its use in the UK's innovation community. We want to find sustainable solutions to real world environmental problems. To do so we are gathering the best data available (Ordnance Survey’s land data, UKHO’s maritime data and Met Office data), the brightest minds and innovators to work together and propose real solutions. Our approach is grounded in research and collaboration.

We are working on challenges to solve coastal pollution issues, starting currently with diffuse pollution and moving onto areas including plastic pollution both macro and micro. To find out more please visit us at the event or visit our dedicated webpage for more information and ways to be involved.
