MultiMap Open API + Ordnance Survey Data

MultiMap Open API + Ordnance Survey Data

Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 Data is now accessible to API developers

is it true?

You can Zoom in and Pan.

A bigger version is available here

"At Multimap we’re [they are] very proud of the wide range of local and global mapping data available on our website and through our API, and are committed to providing as much of this data via the Open API as we [they] can. To that end, we’re very pleased to announce the availability of Ordnance Survey Landranger maps (at 1:50000 scale across zoom levels 13, 14 and 15) through the Open API.

The Landranger data covers England, Scotland and Wales and provides a wealth of topographic features, such as contour lines, tourist attractions and historic features such as Roman roads. These maps are great for walkers, cyclists, or for providing detailed maps of rural areas. We can’t wait to see how people make use of them through the Open API."


A good but probably expensive (regards to licensing) move by Multimap.
