Ordnance Survey Products
As an Ordnance Survey Partner we are able to distribute, sell and licence Ordnance Survey data and products for your use. We offer this primarily for small to medium sized organisations who do not have the time, setup or skills to handle and process geospatial information into usable products.
Our pricing model surrounding OS commercial data is slightly different to our standard products in that royalty payments are due for every copy printed, regardless of the numbers of hard copies held. As such we do not impose a hard copy limit on OS commercial data derived products and instead grant you licences for a specific number of copies you are allowed to print after purchasing the product. You can top up the number of copies in bulk orders of 10, 100, 250 or 500 copies at a time.
Our pricelist (available on request) for creating self-printable PDF files from OS commercial data currently covers:
- 1:25,000 660dpi
- 1:50,000 660dpi
- OS Terrain 5
- OS MasterMap Topography Layer
Most customers will be familiar with the 1:25,000 and 1:50,000 Raster data (identical to the published paper maps, though more up-to-date in many places).
OS Terrain 5
Terrain 5 is a very detailed, 5m grid elevation model covering the whole of GB. We usually use a 50m grid for our contour products and achieve perfectly acceptable results. The 5m grid comes into its own if you are looking at sub 5m contour lines (e.g. 2m, 1m) or are interested in a very detailed and complex area with very small contour features. We also use this product to create the contours for all mapping at or below 1:10,000.
OS MasterMap Topography Layer
OS MasterMap is the most detailed geospatial data layer available in GB. Covering the entire country at survey scales of between 1:10,000 and 1:1,250 the product is the closest customers will get to the base survey data collected by OS' surveyors. OS MasterMap Topography Layer is admired the world over and we are very lucky to have access to this fantastic resource at a surprisingly affordable cost. Since this dataset contains all information and features surveyed by Ordnance Survey it is our go-to dataset for any detailed mapping queries and requests.
