Regardless of arguments about whether or not map data belongs in

They have a rather peculiar system for obtaining this data. If you
are a UK citizen and resident, you can order (for free) a DVD
containing the data you select, which will be sent by snail mail to
your home. I ordered the street map DVD for my local area just to see
what I'd get.

the data that people order together and make it available in some more
