Our work in education and research
Working closely with educational strategic partners, we provide resources and materials that are essential tools for schools teaching the geography curriculum in England, Scotland and Wales. Our gold award-winning Digimap for Schools service provides schools with all their mapping needs at both primary and secondary level and is ideal for cross curricular activities.
The Research team at OS works closely with universities at a number of levels. We are the main point of contact for all enquiries from universities and key activities include hosting second year undergraduate summer interns, supporting MSc dissertations and sponsoring doctoral and post-doctoral research. Digimap for universities and for colleges, available via the EDINA Digimap service, is also managed by the Research team.
Our research programme is very active and aims to improve the capability and efficiency of OS. The programme works closely with universities and students who wish to get involved in our research for their MSc, PhD or EngD.
