OpenStream WMS service for ac.uk


A new web mapping service is now available that makes the Ordnance Survery Open datasets available through WMS. The service offered by EDINA is initially available to anyone with an “ac.uk” email and requires a simple email activated registration. Other than that, there are no restrictions on use. The website includes an example mapping app using OpenLayers and isntructions on how to use the service with Google Earth. We also created a mobile app using this datasource, as described in a previous post on the TouchMapLite interface.

the data products available are:

  • GB Overview
  • Miniscale
  • 1:250000 Colour Raster
  • Vector Map District Raster
  • OS Streetview

you can register for the service (initially ac.uk email addresses only) here.

If you would like to find out how you can use Digimap OpenStream with desktop GIS you should read the Go-Geo! Blog.
