Why OS strategic partnerships unlock value
How Emapsite, an OS Strategic Partner, accessed value from OS data and expertise in a collaborative session
Collaboration and strategic partnerships play a vital role in helping achieve the wider use of location data. OS has a growing eco-system of partners who build innovative new products and services, delivering huge value to the UK economy. It’s estimated over £800m of economic activity annually is associated to OS data.
A strategic partnership with Emapsite
Emapsite, an Ordnance Survey Strategic Partner, recently engaged in a collaborative session with the OS product team to share product roadmaps, explain data in detail, and look at the immense potential of the National Geospatial Database (NGD) – the most comprehensive data on Britain’s landscape.
This session served as a useful platform for knowledge exchange, highlighting the unique features and benefits of NGD while providing the OS team with valuable insight based on Emapsite’s extensive experience in various sectors.
The initial session was focused on deepening Emapsite’s understanding of NGD with an overview followed by a Q&A session focused on the specific features and benefits of the NGD.
Particular benefits identified were:
- More frequent data updates
- Wider range of data attribution
- Richer attribute level metadata
- Individual feature level access
This was followed by an opportunity for the OS product team to understand potential opportunities and pain points that Emapsite encounter every day in the markets they work with - Land and Property , Energy and Infrastructure, Engineering and Environment, Public Sector, and Insurance and Finance. By working together, areas for focus were unearthed to inform priorities for further development.
