Why OS?

Our location data helps support over £100 billion of Great Britain’s economy. It’s crucial when disasters strike, when emergency services need to get somewhere fast, when developers need to find the right site to build on...

Our data touches the lives of everyone, every day, helping businesses, individuals and the public sector.

... And while our much-loved paper maps are still an important part of our brand, they represent only 5% of our annual revenue. We’re a digital data powerhouse.

We innovate

There’s lots going on at OS. Our creative software engineers, designers, researchers, product managers, developers, surveyors, cartographers, marketers and user experience team (to name a few) work hard to bring cutting-edge ideas to life, and we’re always looking to the future.

We’re passionate about leading the way with location. So passionate, that we’ve got a Hub in London dedicated just to geospatial innovation.

Our reach is international

Governments across the world have seen how we collect map data and how it's used, and they want to be able to do the same. We advise other countries so that they can build a stronger economy.
