Let's get started

No more licensing red tape

It sounds too good to be true, but we know how valuable this may be to your organisation. Emapsite's Contractor Link gives fast, flexible access to definitive, licensed location mapping and data.

In short, Contractor Link makes it possible for many stakeholders to access the same resource quickly and easily - without needing to waste time on licensing administration. It's ideal for all kinds of project work, including planning, engineering and environmental applications.

Our self-service portal has been adopted by hundreds of Public Sector organisations already, all using their access to OS data under the PSGA mapping agreements, all benefiting from the zero red tape involved in sharing that resource among their contractors.

And Emapsite Contractor Link is now available to any large data user - government or commercial.

How will Contractor Link help me?

In addition to acessing your pre-licensed data, Contractor Link helps licence holders and contractors to manage and share a huge library of Open Data. This includes Natural England environmental constraints data, the Environment Agency flood data and plenty of other sources such as DCLG green belt polygons.

Contractor Link also supports the management of your organisation’s own in-house data. This may include survey data, remote sensed points or polygons, or other data you've captured over time.

With Emapsite Contractor Link, the licence holder and owner keep full control and visibility over the access to their data library. At the same time, contractors can keep the project moving by downloading the data for the locations they need in a choice of application-ready formats.
