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.

AddressBase Core

Local Authority data is at the heart of AddressBase Core. Providing you with a complete address data product & ensuring access to granular detail when compared to the alternative - delivery points.

Product Details

AddressBase Core makes it easier to locate, match and gain insights from other location data with the benefit of having  key identifiers referenced throughout. The Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN), Unique Street Reference Number (USRN) and Topographic Identifier (TOID) allow users to reference to other OS products.

Third party identifiers such as the Unique Delivery Point Reference Number (UDPRN) and Government Statistical Service (GSS) Code are also included, so you're  more likely to be able to confidently bring multiple sources together using one of the key identifiers included in this dataset.

Making the most of the property classification attributes, you can quickly understand, locate and perform analysis on the type of addresses you want to interact with. 

You don’t need to use it all - only need residential addresses, commercial addresses or even just schools? No problem - AddressBase Core can do that too!

Product Details

​Emapsite LandPack Title and Tenure provides Emapsite LandPack Polygons plus OS MasterMap Topography Layer for a customer's area of interest.  The product indicates freehold and leasehold polygons and areas where no data is held (perhaps because ownership information is held in paper deeds, by a mortgage provider/solicitor or there is no owner) along with property information such as property type, built form and construction age plus current energy consumption, rating, efficiency and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

There may be more than one polygon per Title (e.g.  where a house with a garden has a garage located separately).  

You can purchase emapsite Land Title and Tenure through our online mapshop, where you can define your area of interest and purchase in a range of GIS formats.

What does it cover?

  • Historical Land Use information
  • Environmental Permits, Incidents and Registers
  • Hydrology and Hydrogeology data including abstractions, source protection zones (SPZ), now with SPZ within confined aquifers
  • Basic flood data including EA Flood Zones, RoFRaS and groundwater

Underground Utilities map

Utility Essentials

​This report gives visibility of the 5 key services – Gas, Electric, Water, Sewage and BT Openreach.

Product Details

The Essentials report is collated and delivered in 5 working days* and is ideal for remote sites where only the main utility providers are likely to be present or projects where the aim is merely to check the availability of the main utilities (water/sewer, gas, electric and BT) e.g. in the planning stages of a new development.

*Due to the extensive nature of some searches, the number of utilities searched, and the response timescales imposed by some utility suppliers, it can happen that not all responses are received within the relevant timeframe. When this does occur, your report will be delivered with all available content as requested, and a final report will be delivered as soon as the outstanding information has been received.
