One Scotland Mapping Agreement

  • OSMA

    Putting geographic information at the heart of policy and service delivery across Scotland

    Case studies

The One Scotland Mapping Agreement (or OSMA) membership gives you access to high quality mapping in a digital format which brings many benefits and supports a wide range of business activities. Access to Ordnance Survey mapping data can also help solve problems by visually sharing complex data on a map background.

What is the OSMA?

The OSMA represents an excellent example of cooperation between Scottish Government and Ordnance Survey. It demonstrates how the Scottish public sector, working in partnership, can improve the way that public services are provided to the people of Scotland.

The OSMA offers members instant access to a vast digital resource, while the licensing terms allow users to exchange information with any stakeholders involved in government activity – including the voluntary sector. Coupled with the ability to work seamlessly across central and local government and the health sector in Scotland, the agreement makes cross-organisational working easier, helping to reduce the duplication of effort and costs, and drive innovation.

However it is used, location-based information can aid policy making, support the delivery of information to citizens, drive down costs and enable the development of e-government services.
