OS MasterMap Topography Layer contains a small number of errors in the data. These include an overlapping area, a gap between features and a double digitalised lines. These problems are transient and the application of normal Change Only Updates (COU) will remove them in due course.

Known Topography Layer issues:

  • There is an instance of overlapping areas (image).
  • There is an instance of a gap between area features (image).
  • There is an instance of a double digitalised line (image).
  • Following the release of descriptive terms, there is a bridge improvement program currently in progress which is due to complete later on this summer.
  • There is a known issue with some of the TOID lifecycle versions on 83 Cartographic Text features. This will be resolved in the next release.

Known ITN Layer issues:

Both full supply and COU match the FVDS. No discrepancies were found in this ITN release. Schema validations of the COU and full supply contain no errors.
There were a few errors identified this refresh:

  • Incorrect one-way links on A584 (image)
  • No Entry on wrong link on A570 (image)
