We are making a number of improvements to our imagery portfolio. In October 2013, we introduced a new perpetual licence option to provide imagery as a one-off purchase for customers to provide an alternative to annual licensing.

Alongside the dedicated maintenance of OS MasterMap Imagery Layer, we are also capturing additional imagery to enhance the portfolio in 2014-15.
This includes infra-red imagery, ideal for vegetation monitoring and true-orthorectified imagery, which improves image interpretation by improving the position of taller real-world features.
In addition to this, we are capturing 10 cm high-resolution imagery within urban areas.

This will enable clearer analysis of features, such as street furniture and road surface for better decision making and reduced site visits.
