OS Open Zoomstack workshops – book your place

By popular demand, our Geovation team will be delivering another series of geotech workshops across Great Britain. This time, they’re focusing the sessions on OS Open Zoomstack to help you embed OS Maps into your web, mobile and desktop application.

OS Open Zoomstack

We launched OS Open Zoomstack as a trial in July and over 900 people signed up to take part. We’ve seen over 1,100 downloads of the Vector Tiles, 900+ for GeoPackage and over 400 downloads of the PostGIS Export File. It’s been fantastic seeing OS Open Zoomstack being used, from building an interactive map in a day with Axis Maps to supporting a BBC article on rental prices across Britain and enhancing Pocket Pal’s mapping.

Now that OS Open Zoomstack is moving towards full production, we want even more people to find out how easy it is to use. If you haven’t heard about it, it’s a comprehensive vector basemap showing coverage of GB from a national level right down to street level detail. It makes elements of OS OpenData available as one map in one file which you can use for GIS, web, mobile or offline use. It is designed to make OS map data customisable as well as more accessible and easier to use in mobile applications.

The workshops

The sessions include a mix of presentations and practical exercises. For the practical elements, OS experts are on hand to provide support. From beginner to more technically advanced, our sessions cater for all levels and, as all software, materials and refreshments are provided, all you need to bring is your own laptop. The workshop materials are all openly available online and as open source software is used, you can work on the materials in your own time after the event. It is also a good opportunity to meet other developers and understand how they use OS Open Zoomstack.
