Open Street Map

Open streetmap is to maps what wikipedia is to dictionaries. It is not consistant quality as it depends on the effort  volunteers have put into the area. Southampton west of the river is pretty well covered, East of the river has less buildings marked. You can access the data as tiles for use with the excellent leaflet.js but you can also get the raw data too.

Aerial photography of Hampshire

Hampshire Council have provided high quality aerial photography of the whole county. It is divided up into files of 1 square km each. They are 4000 x 4000 JPeg files.

Please don't directly link to the images hosted by the Council as the bandwidth costs are high. If you are in Southampton and would like a copy of all the data, please contract Christopher Gutteridge at the university of Southampton who can copy it for you to save everyone's bandwidth.
