A message from our CEO, Steve Blair:

"It has been an extraordinary year for Ordnance Survey, and I’m immensely proud of how our people have adapted to the challenges of Covid-19 and executed on the strategy launched in April 2020. Having promised new data, new access to data and new freedoms to share data, we can reflect on a year where OS has delivered on every one of those promises."

Covid-19: how OS has supported the nation's response

OS analysis and expertise has been heavily relied on over the last year.

We helped the Cabinet Office map the most efficient routes to Covid-19 test centres and assisted the NHS with the roll-out of the vaccination programme. Our geospatial analysts were seconded to the Joint Biosecurity Centre, and their contribution was recognised for improving data quality and enhancing insights which led to better outcomes including across Test and Trace.
