London: More Public Sector organisations than ever across England and Wales are improving service delivery and benefiting from cost efficiencies by accurately mapping their property assets. York Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has become 3000th PSMA member to reaffirm power of geographic data in public sector proficiency.

Ordnance Survey’s innovative geographic data, provided under the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA), is underpinning this vital work.

Over 3,000 public sector organisations have now registered for the PSMA, a ground-breaking licensing agreement between government and Ordnance Survey. The PSMA allows geographic and address data to be widely available, free at the point of use and shared between all public sector organisations across England and Wales.

Joining the PSMA has given York Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust the opportunity to explore how GIS can support the Trust’s estates and facility management.
