Licensed partners can obtain digital map data from Ordnance Survey for inclusion within their own products and/or services and/or for onward distribution/resale under the terms of the Framework Contract (Partners) (FCP).
The FCP is the umbrella agreement which outlines the commercial relationship between Ordnance Survey and the licensed partner. A number of Contracts (including the User Derived Dataset Contract) sit under the FCP which provide specific terms related to the activity being conducted.
For your reference below is a brief description of activities covered specifically by the terms of the User Derived Dataset Contract. Please note the information below is a summary and therefore not exhaustive, you should always refer to the Contract for full details.
Under the User Derived Dataset Contract Ordnance Survey grants you a licence to create datasets utilising Ordnance Survey Data (in whole or in part) together with additional third party data. The additional data must be a fundamental component of the dataset created.
Examples of how you can use Ordnance Survey Data under the User Derived Dataset Contract are as follows:
- to create a dataset comprising polygons which have 5% or less coincidence with our data, such as a sales territory
- to create a dataset comprising points, such as nature reserves
- to create a dataset comprising attribution extracted from our data, such as the size of a building.
- to create output data obtained from interrogating the Licensed Data
You can only onward licence the derived dataset created to organisations as an electronic image or as a data format to be used within a geographical information system.
