Unlocking the value of our national geospatial, land & property data assets

Geovation Scotland is a collaboration between Ordnance Survey and Registers of Scotland to help unlock greater value from our national geospatial, land & property data assets by supporting entrepreneurs, innovators and developers bring new location data and property services to market.

"The knowledge and support of the Geovation Scotland team has been exceptional. If they don’t have the skills in house they quickly find someone that does within their extensive network. As a solo founder having this to fall back on has been invaluable."
