Simple and direct access to the OS National Geographic Database (OS NGD)

Get started quickly and download the data you need, as and when you need it, powering your applications with rich, consistent and current geographic information

Data to match your organisations requirements

Source the data you want direct from the OS NGD and get a customised view of GB, along with having the choice on how you want to receive your data.

Easier access

For the first time, you can select and build your own data package/s rather than taking off-the shelf OS products. You can take data from different OS NGD collections to build your own recipe of data to produce bespoke data package/s.

Enhanced features

You can now select what you need e.g. Building Line and Building Part Feature Types (which are both in the Buildings Features Collection of the Buildings Theme) and the Structure Line Feature Type (which is in the Structure Features Collection of the Structures Theme) to build your own recipe and data package/s.
