Innovation at OS

Discover how our expertise is driving innovation such as smart cities.

We are enabling connected environments using our geospatial expertise. For Ordnance Survey (OS), an integrated and connected world requires a deep understanding of place. People, assets, sensors and systems need trusted and authoritative information about their location and the environment within which they exist.
