Viewdata.org.uk is currently a private project being run by Rob O'Donnell in his own time and at his own expense, as a prelude to a full public launch and search for suitable funding to allow more in-depth coverage and research.  

Contributions are always welcome, and will be added to the site as soon as time and resources allow.  Feedback is welcome and appreciated.  It's nice to know the site is being read!

Most of the information currently hosted is from Rob's own archives, and is therefore more limited in range than the ideal.  In particular, it is lacking in many examples from the travel and financial services industries, which were actually particular prominent users of viewdata technologies at the time.

Apologies for the quality of some of the scans.  Limited time and only domestic equipment means I cannot get the top quality I would prefer.

Enquiries can be made via the contact page.

I request that any representatives from the media please contact me first before publicising this site.  Contact telephone numbers and access to a publicity page will be granted to any bona fide news organisation.

Thanks to..
