Ordnance Survey Licence for Free Access to Map Data

A range of new licences from Ordnance Survey provide users with free access to a wide range of mapping data for experimentation and development.

The move forms part of Ordnance Survey's new business strategy, which aims to further promote the innovative use of geographic information. Users can now download sample areas of premium products direct from the Ordnance Survey website, while even more data, up to 10% of anywhere in the country, is available for free to those that request it.

The three new licences, entitled "Discover", "Evaluate" and "Developer" make it easier for businesses, government agencies, social groups and entrepreneurs to experiment with Ordnance Survey data and realise the value of location-based information. Samples of 22 datasets are available, including the entire OS MasterMap product suite of topography, imagery, address and transport network layers.
