Public Sector Mapping Agreement

Nearly every public sector organisation in England and Wales can become a member of the PSMA and experience the benefits of using Ordnance Survey (OS) digital mapping.

Make better decisions, save money and boost efficiency with access to Ordnance Survey mapping data. Our Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) is a collective agreement between OS and the government to licence our data to you.

Pooling intelligence helps police forces tackle crime together. Partnerships between local councils, schools and the NHS are key to tackling issues like childhood obesity and teenage pregnancies.
