OS – Ordnance Survey

Ordnance Survey (OS) is responsible for the national surveying of Great Britain (England, Scotland & Wales). The organisation records and maintains detailed geographic location information within a unique map.
In addition to the national survey of Great Britain, Ordnance Survey is one of the world's largest map producers and therefore a valuable partner from whom we obtain map data in England, Scotland and Wales.
