Ordnance Survey works closely with a wide range of public sector organisations across England, Wales and Scotland. We help organisations to reduce time, save money and be more efficient in the delivery of public services.
Our work supports government initiatives to make services more efficient and effective for users, improving transparency, accountability, innovation and the accessibility of data across the public sector. Our mapping agreements support closer collaboration and the delivery of joined-up services, helping public sector teams to work more closely together.
Our digital map products support the sharing and visualisation of data, facilitating better problem solving and helping to reduce costs and drive up efficiency levels.
We are encouraging local authorities to use our free mapping data under the PSMA and OSMA to benefit a new initiative, Future Cities. It aims to address the future needs of our cities to help improve infrastructure and quality of life, and you can find more information on our Future Cities page.
How to join?
Membership of one of these agreements gives a public sector organisation access to a range of Ordnance Survey products. The PSMA (which covers England and Wales) and the OSMA (which covers Scotland) helps organisations to deal with a wide range of challenges and makes use of geographic and location data across a range of applications.
Who are our customers?
To date, over 3,000 organisations have joined the PSMA and around 100 organisations are now members of the OSMA. These include local authorities, district councils, health departments, national park authorities, emergency services and many other public sector bodies.
