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.
The Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA), which covers England and Wales, and the One Scotland Mapping Agreement (OSMA), helps organisations to deal with a wide range of challenges, supports closer collaboration and the delivery of joined-up services, and makes use of geographic and location data across a range of applications.
For more information about these mapping agreements
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.
