UK: A new three-party agreement between Ordnance Survey (GB), Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi) and Land and Property Services (LPS) Northern Ireland is set to improve access and availability of mapping services for users across the United Kingdom and Ireland. The agreement will enable each of the national mapping organisations to act as a single point of access for customers choosing to view digital mapping from any of the three organisations via their Web service platforms. On 28 May, senior figures from the three organisations met in Belfast to officially sign the TriOS agreement. The agreement was signed by Mick Cory (Director of Mapping LPS), Colin Bray (CEO, Ordnance Survey Ireland) and Neil Ackroyd (Acting CEO, Ordnance Survey). The new service will become operational in late 2015.
