Migrating to a customisable OS mapping dataset

If you haven’t come across it before, OS VectorMap Local is the most detailed of our backdrop mapping data products and covers the whole of Great Britain. Designed for creating graphical contextual mapping, you’ll see the shapes of individual houses, the line of garden fences and more detailed outlines of larger buildings. It gives you clear, street-level maps so that you can display information such as planning proposals or the location of local amenities.
