PMCL and other licensing
A PMCL will enable your business to make unlimited copies of Ordnance Survey mapping either in paper or electronic form such as a PDF or raster format (not a vector data file such as DXF, or any file that is geo-referenced). It is purchased on a per office basis and covers all copying of OS maps by that office irrespective of the number of copies or where you purchased your mapping.
OS Mapping can support the internal administration and operation of your business as well as limited external use such as display on web pages. Make sure you can legally copy and share data. Applying is easy just click on the link.
