As part of the Public Sector Geospatial Agreement (PSGA), OS is giving new freedoms to share data.
One of these new freedoms is that from the 1 July 2020 PSGA members will be able to publish property extents created from OS MasterMap Topography Layer under Open Government Licence (OGL) terms, e.g. HM Land Registry and Registers of Scotland’s INSPIRE polygon datasets.
This, along with the new Open Identifier policy, will result in significantly more geospatial data being fully open for businesses and developers to use, free and without restriction. We will work with all PSGA members in the coming months to support them in understanding what this new freedom means for them.
What are property extents?
Property extents data consist of closed polygons (red lines in the images on this page) representing real-world features such as fences and walls, or non-real-world features such as where a driveway meets a pavement.
