Digimap Ordnance Survey

 Data Download adds OS MasterMap and Boundaries

The Data Download facility within the Digimap Ordnance Survey Collection has been updated. The following datasets have been added to the existing service:
  • OS MasterMap® Topography Layer
  • OS MasterMap® ITN (Integrated Transport Network™) Layer
  • Boundary-Line™
  • Codepoint®
  • Codepoint® with Polygons
  • National Boundaries
  • National Grids
MasterMap Download and Boundary Download will continue to run until the end of May 2013, after which they will be removed from service.
Users should find it quicker and easier to get required data from Data Download, and we have made it easier to come back and get updated versions or different formats.
This functionality can be found in the My Previous Downloads section where you can also make a Change Only Update (COU) to your OS MasterMap data. See this blog post for more details:
Another improvement of getting OS MasterMap data from Data Download is that the interface allows you to select data from previous years, going back to 2009.
By selecting an area, adding MasterMap data from 2009, then using the Add more data button, you can include more MasterMap data from different dates. This is a useful feature for studying how an area has changed over time.
