    We have released a number of new styling options for Topography Layer including style sheets in SLD, LYR and QML. The code is designed to make styling the data easier by adding a ‘style-code’ attribute to features to enable on the fly styling using the stylesheets. This is available now through the open source portal GitHub and will be fully supported with version control, user guides and release notes. Go to: https://github.com/OrdnanceSurvey/OSMM-Topography-Layer-stylesheets/

    We are currently developing styling options in preparation for the release of upgraded Topography Layer and we’ll keep you posted.
    Let us know if you have any queries or tips for other users below.

      I see that you are supporting ESRI and QGIS users but not MapInfo or other systems - again! Why do you support some but not others?

        It is not currently possible to create style sheets for some systems but we are committed to releasing an initial set of data in standard formats to provide a single source of reliable and maintained style code. We encourage software developers to use the code to assist in providing styling options for the many solutions available to our customers.

          Are there any style codes available yet?

            Hi,
            We'll be updating the Schema 9 SQL and stylesheets as soon as the new sample data is available to test - we'll then have SQL for Oracle, PostGIS and SQLServer together with LYR, QML and SLD stylesheets. The style codes currently available are a good guide to how things will look in v9 - but there may be some small tweaks once they have been tested against the new sample data.

              Hi
              I have checked this morning and SQL is available only for PostGIS currently for v9.
              When can we expect the Schema 9 SQL for SQLServer and Oracle?

                Hi Martin,

                We're just looking into those at the moment. Which would be the priority for you out of SQLServer and Oracle?

                  Hi Tim
                  Oracle is the one we are interested in.

                  Thanks
                  -Martin

                    Thanks Martin - we're hoping to have Oracle SQL on the GitHub page next week. Thanks for your patience.

                      Just a quick update, and apologies for the delay - we should have the SQL ready next week.

                      Best wishes,

                      Tim

                        Hi,

                        Just to say that the Oracle SQL for the v9 schema is now on the GitHub Page - https://github.com/OrdnanceSurvey/OSMM-Topography-Layer-stylesheets.

                        Sorry for the delay with this.

                          Hi,

                          I understand the descriptiveterms will be available in July versions of the COU's will this fully populate the tables, or will the descriptiveterms be updated in a gradual rollout? If the latter when are the tables likely to be fully populated? We don't want to push sld's into production systems untill the data is fully populated.

                          Many Thanks

                          Alex

                            Hi Alex,

                            We're still aiming for release in summer, but August rather than July. We'll be in contact with customers when we're able to confirm that. The descriptive terms will be updated in a gradual roll-out, finishing in early 2018.

                            Please note that the SQL that defines the styling codes for our stylesheets (https://github.com/OrdnanceSurvey/OSMM-Topography-Layer-stylesheets) will work on current descriptive terms, new ones, and a mixture of the two - so can be applied at any point.

                            I hope that helps,

                            Tim

                              Many Thanks Tim,

                              That answers all my questions.
