While we’re very well known for our paper maps, helping outdoors enthusiasts enjoy the lovely British countryside, it’s our digital data that sees us capturing the changes to our country on a daily basis. New buildings appear whilst others are pulled down, the road layout changes and new footpaths are laid. Change is everywhere.
Theses changes are captured and added to our databases every day. Our most detailed digital data can be seen in OS MasterMap. It is a continually updated database containing a variety of information in four different product layers. Between them they contain over 450 million geographic features found in the real world, from individual addresses to roads and buildings.
It’s used by local authorities, businesses and government organisations across Great Britain. It could be used to help plan the most effective routes for refuse collection or to ensure your online shopping makes it to your door on time.
This video gives you a brief introduction to OS MasterMap. Have a look and let us know what you think. It’s a bit different to our OS Explorer Map isn’t it?
