About OS Terrain 5

A true virtual landscape

OS Terrain 5 is the height data you need to model construction projects within the wider landscape. This helps you give planners an accurate virtual view of your plans and the steps you’re taking to minimise their visual impact on the surrounding area.

Harness the elements

OS Terrain 5 helps you analyse wind speed and signal propagation. This is important when siting wind turbines, best located in exposed upland areas to maximise their power output, and mobile phone masts, which serve ever more data-hungry users.

Affordable

With both 5m grid and 5m contours in GML, Esri shape and ASCII grid available for one price, OS Terrain 5 puts the detailed analysis of Great Britain’s landscape within reach.

OS Terrain 5 Height Data

OS Terrain 5

OS Terrain 5 is a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) showing the bare surface of the ground, without vegetation or buildings and is ideal for 3D modelling.

Product Details

It offers detailed modelling of significant features such as road, rail, quarries and lakes​ allowing you to asses the lie of the land on-screen and reduce the need for site visits. OS Terrain 5 has a root mean square error (RMSE) value of 1.5 metres in urban areas and major communication routes. 

OS Terrain 5 is maintained as part of the same revision process as the Ordnance Survey's large scale datasets and so adds a valuable third dimension to OS MasterMap Topography Layer.

Aerial imagery sample

OS MasterMap Imagery Layer

The OS MasterMap Imagery Layer comprises the best available aerial images, edge-matched and orthorectified to align with other OS MasterMap layers.

Product Details

The aerial images give added context to features which exist within other (vector) OS MasterMap layers and allow interpretation of other features not identified within the vector datasets. The data is rigorously checked for quality to maintain a consistent standard of both positional accuracy and image quality.

Additionally Ordnance Survey processing software produces true-orthorectified imagery, removing building lean from aerial imagery to give you a consistent top-down view.

Aerial imagery is ideal for checking road markings, tree canopies or site entrances, cutting down the need for site visits, so you can save money and manage time more efficiently.

Purchasable as both a traditional raster cut-out of a user defined area or as web services.

OS MasterMap Imagery layer is ideal for:

  • Planning
  • Site location and evaluation
  • Land use classification and analysis
  • Transport and infrastructure
  • Asset management
  • Environmental analysis
  • Flood mapping
  • 3D visualisation
