Land-Line consultation

24 November 2005

The summary of responses comes as increasing numbers of customers and business partners move from large-scale Land-Line mapping to new generation OS MasterMap data.

The consultation was designed to inform decision making by exploring the impact of product migration in market sectors such as local government, utilities and land and property.

Ordnance Survey is committed to maintaining Land-Line until at least April 2008 to ensure customers have enough time to migrate to OS MasterMap.

Around 250 Land-Line customers responded during the consultation with three quarters of them saying they were well ahead in their planning. More than a third of respondents were confident that their withdrawal would be complete within the next two years.

Various methods were employed to gain feedback, including face-to-face interviews, an online questionnaire and telephone interviews.

The results reflect growing recognition of the benefits in moving to OS MasterMap such as easier data association, faster updates, seamless coverage and cost efficiencies in data acquisition and management.
