OS MasterMap® is Ordnance Survey's most comprehensive product, containing a suite of different layers, each of which provides a different aspect of valuable mapping data for use in a Geographic Information system (GIS).
- Large scale - local
- Height and imagery
- Detailed Networks
- Address and location
It is a continually updated database, containing 450 million geographic features found in the real world, from individual addresses to roads and buildings. Every feature has a unique common reference (a TOID) which enables the layers to be used together, including a layer of your own information.
OS MasterMap layers comprise:
- Topography Layer
- Integrated Transport Network™ (ITN) Layer
- Imagery Layer
- Networks - Water Layer (Beta release)
- Sites Layer
The sections below explain each of the OS MasterMap layers and how they can help your organisation to visualise data and solve geographic and location based problems.
