Scottish firms continue to benefit from mapping agreement

Scotland: Public sector organisations in Scotland will continue to have access to Ordnance Survey mapping data following an agreement between the Scottish Government and Ordnance Survey to renew the One Scotland Mapping Agreement (OSMA).

Under the new agreement local and central government organisations, as well as Scottish NHS members, can continue to benefit from being part of a single agreement for Ordnance Survey data. The popular OSMA was established in 2010, and is now being used by 112 Scottish public sector organisations. Through the agreement, users are accessing a diverse range of Ordnance Survey datasets which have become an essential tool in delivering public services, underpinning decision making, driving cost savings and enabling greater data sharing.

The One Scotland Mapping Agreement includes a broad range of Ordnance Survey data, including OS MasterMap Topography and Integrated Transport Network Layers as well as almost all the supporting scales of mapping. This data will support a diverse range of services including environmental planning, community development initiatives, flood mapping, estate management and habitat mapping.
