The foundation of the OS MasterMap family
With OS MasterMap Topography Layer, each feature is a record in a database. Each of these records has information about the feature’s position and shape on Earth – its geometry – as well as details about it termed ‘attributes’.
The Topography Layer is the foundation of the OS MasterMap family. It provides an accurate visual context to help you interpret addresses, routes and imagery provided by the other layers.
