Our Policy and practice

We are committed to operating our pricing and licensing policy in a fair, open and transparent way. We encourage the use and exploitation of mapping and data by providing a wide range of licences including "free to use" that focus on how our customers wish to use our data and the rights we grant for those uses.

We offer a series of Framework Licences covering the supply of Ordnance Survey Data direct to customers' for use within their business (Direct customers) and for those wishing to use our products within their own products/services (Partners). We also provide licences for the use of our paper maps.

Our Framework Licences define the general trading relationships that we have with our customers, who will sign a Framework Licence for the particular type of relationship they want to have with us. Each Framework is underpinned with a more detailed contract that deals with the rights being granted for the use of our products.

We licence a number of free of charge OS OpenData products with very few restrictions on their use and re-use and also offer derived data terms including free to use terms.

Our OS OpenSpace API enables customers to display our maps on their website free of charge.
