Enabling the environment for a smarter future

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 they exist.

We are developing our understanding of how the physical and digital worlds, both above and below ground, will use geospatial information and dynamic content to become integrated and power existing and future places.

We are shaping the national data infrastructure that will support the UK’s ambitions to be a world-class test centre for accelerating Connected Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) testing programmes.

What we do

Advanced connectivity

5G, full fibre networks and faster mobile speeds will underpin new and existing services and solutions.

Intelligent mobility

Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) will shape how the world moves people and goods in the future.

Infrastructure

Our physical infrastructure supports everything from how we move around to how we live, communicate and work.

5G key to success of automated vehicles

5G will help bring automated vehicles to life by delivering 100% confidence in the Ordnance Survey data that directs and manages them.
