Public Sector mapping Agreement

PSMA Annual Conference 2016

Wednesday 16 March – Central Hall, Westminster


The PSMA Annual Conference 2016 took place on Wednesday 16 March at Central Hall, Westminster.

This year, we focused on how to overcome internal challenges such as skillset changes, new funding models, new processes and technology driving new innovation.

The public sector shares a common goal to deliver effective, efficient, evidence-based policy and public services to the citizen. Your free access to spatial data through the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) provides the common location context for over 3500 public sector organisations. It's delivering tangible results.

This was the perfect opportunity to network with existing PSMA members, and discover the value that Ordnance Survey data can bring to your organisation. Here are some of the highlights:

  • In-depth information on how your organisation can benefit from spatial data
  • A variety of speakers – many specific to your sector
  • Meeting with a range of leading spatial solution providers
  • Insights into best practice
