Working with the Public Sector

Your organisation probably has a licence for the UK’s most detailed topographic mapping – OS MasterMap – and its associated addressing product, AddressBase.

Ordnance Survey may offer you free access at the point of use via the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) or One Scotland Mapping Agreement (OSMA), but the system isn’t perfect.

  • Have you ever had format issues with OS’s mapping or location data?
  • Are licencing challenges slowing things down across your organisation?
  • Do you have problems sharing data with contractors quickly and easily?

We have a reputation for solving these problems and making life easier all round. We support many organisations across the UK, and our team is here to make sure you’re getting the content you need, not paying for detail and data (and licencing challenges) you don’t.
