We are running a campaign at the moment to encourage land and property professionals such as surveyors, conveyancers, architects and developers to ensure they are licensed and up-to-date when they use location data. The campaign is supported by RICS, Land Data, FAST and other leading industry figures and features a series of filmswhich explain why it’s important.
Ordnance Survey makes up to 10 000 changes to the master map database of Great Britain every day, reflecting the rapid developments in the nation’s environment. However, it’s not only important for organisations to have the most up-to-date data, but also vital that they have the appropriate licence to use it effectively.
In the first of the three films which we’ll be showing over the next few weeks, we hear from Land Data about why it’s important for conveyancers to be using fully up-to-date and licensed mapping, because as maps change, if you’re using incomplete information, then you’re failing to stay ahead.
