Key Parts Of OS MasterMap Data To Be Made Freely Available

Article by: Darren Griffin
Date: 15 Jun 2018

It has been announced that key parts of Ordnance Survey’s (OS) highly detailed OS MasterMap are being made freely available under the Open Government Licence (OSL).

Data to be made available free of charge includes OS MasterMap Greenspace Layer, OS MasterMap Highways Network, OS MasterMap Water Network Layer and OS Detailed Path Network.

It's estimated that this will boost the UK economy by at least £130m each year, as innovative companies and startups gain access and start to use the data.

Previously a one-year contract covering Great Britain cost £4,581,000. Making OS MasterMap available in this way is intended to remove the barriers identified which affected start-ups and small businesses in particular.

Will this be available to the general public, or just to businesses?
