Customisable street level mapping of Great Britain
VectorMap Local enables customisable mapping with street level detail that is highly accurate, detailed and reliable.
VectorMap Local is full of rich, detailed mapping attributes and features that improves contextual information and in-depth analysis – especially when compared to alternative data sources.
Prebuilt colour options are available for both vector and raster formats, but vector data is fully customisable. You can design your VML basemap to perfectly suit your needs. This might be to a preferred colour palette, to suit different viewing methods or to highlight features of most interest.
Reliable, up-to-date mapping
VectorMap Local is generated automatically from OS Large Scale Topographic database (used for OSMM Topo), improving currency and consistency to give accurate and reliable real world geographical information.
Easier to load vector data
OS VectorMap Local comes in GeoPackage so it's easy to use in geographic information system (GIS) packages. GeoPackage, which is natively supported by most software applications, is an open, non-proprietary, platform-independent data format for GIS systems.
