Getting started

Start by viewing an example demo of our products such as Boundary-line on OS Open Zoomstack API.

You can then view all our OpenData products - we offer 12 free OS map data products including data on roads, rivers, and boundaries.

When you're ready, get OS OpenData by downloading it or ordering it on DVD. Our getting started guide tells you how to use our mapping data - you'll need a geographic information system (GIS).
