OS Open

Our new OS Open products are available for download. Use them to visualise and integrate your data, then share it with the general public.

OS Open Map – Local – a brand new 'street level' dataset designed to be the most detailed open data mapping product available for Great Britain.

Targeted at both public sector and commercial users, the mapping provides an enhanced level of building detail. It includes specific identification of functional sites such as hospitals and schools, extended naming of roads and an extensive set of cartographic names – all in a customisable and easy to style format.

An ideal backdrop map for integrating, visualising and analysing other open datasets, this new product is designed to underpin a new generation of desktop, web and mobile applications.

OS Open Names – a new and improved gazetteer for use by people who need the most up to date place names, road names, road numbers and postcodes. Ideal for use in location searches for both mobile and online uses, it significantly enhances existing gazetteers made available by Ordnance Survey.

OS Open Rivers – a generalised network product covering Great Britain's rivers which will provide a national view of our watercourses.

We are particularly attentive to the need for river network data to support a range of environmental interest associated with flood management and pollution control. This product is designed for both public sector and commercial users. It will enable you to carry out some basic network analytics, and will support the planning process.

OS Open Roads – a generalised road network product delivering a national view of Great Britain’s road network.
