Select Committee on Communities and Local Government Committee Written Evidence

Annex 1A


  The datasets listed here are those required to fulfil the Ordnance Survey's Public Task. The "Public Task" rationale for each dataset is given, together with the products by which Ordnance Survey currently disseminates the datasets to customers of all types. Taken together the datasets and products form an integrated portfolio providing a framework of nationally consistent, authoritative and correlated geographic information from the detailed individual property level to the strategic regional and national overview.

  In addition to these datasets, as the National Mapping Agency Ordnance Survey provides other services for the wider public good including:

    —  Scientific quality location and positioning reference information;

    —  Printing and map content support to assist MoD in their work;

    —  Survey activity to assist in the timely and accurate registration of land.
