Great news this morning, our latest OS OpenData products are now available for download. Announced last month, the four new products in our open data portfolio are OS Open Map – Local, OS Open Names, OS Open Rivers and OS Open Roads. Bringing our OS OpenData offering up to sixteen products, the latest offer you increased detail and accuracy and the opportunity for analytics. They are fully customisable and can work together or be imported and integrated with your own software and database.

OS Open Map – Local provides a customisable backdrop for users to map, visualise and fully understand their data. This new product provides the most detailed level of buildings in OS’s open data suite and is designed to be used with other open data products.

OS Open Names is a reliable location search product for when you need to find something fast. It’s a new, better quality, consistent index for all the location names in Great Britain. Users can search a particular location or look for somewhere in a number of ways to an accuracy of within 1 metre.

OS Open Rivers is a generalised open water network showing the flow and the locations of rivers, streams, lakes and canals across the whole of Great Britain.

OS Open Roads is a connected road network for Great Britain. It contains all classified roads (such as motorways and A & B roads) as well as officially named unclassified roads.

All 16 OS OpenData products are free to view, download and use for commercial, educational and personal purposes. Visit www.os.uk/opendata
