Ordnance Survey is the national mapping agency of Great Britain. Cadcorp has supported Ordnance Survey data for over 20 years, as part of the Cadcorp SIS product portfolio. Wherever possible this data is read out-of-the-box, without translation or pre-processing. National datasets are displayed instantly.
