Innovation is GREAT Britain
Bringing the best of Britain to the world
For world-class innovation, choose the UK. The GREAT Britain Campaign showcases the best of what the UK has to offer to inspire the world and encourage people to visit, do business, invest and study in the UK.
The government-led initiative helps to raise awareness of the UK’s expertise and at OS, we're proud to continue our partnership with the GREAT Campaign.
We're supporting innovation
For 225 years OS has been at the forefront of the global mapping industry, constantly pushing the boundaries on innovation and supporting the Government and businesses to deliver products, services and technology-driven projects.
Today, we're playing a key role in a range of digital national projects including:
- 5G innovations
We're developing a ground-breaking planning and mapping tool for 5G technology, which will develop faster wireless communications worldwide.
- Smart Cities
We're part of a winning £10m consortium that’s helping Manchester to become the UK’s Internet of Things (IoT) Demonstrator, through the CityVerve project.
- Autonomous Vehicles
We're sharing our data and insights with partners to support the emerging smart mobility sector.
Accurate location data is essential to the success of these projects, and we're proud to maintain one of the most detailed and intelligent geospatial databases in the world.
