Historical Mapping can be an asset to your project. This type of mapping could help your business in many ways for instance, legal issues include boundary disputes, feasibility studies, change of use registration and historical research.
We can offer OS historical mapping from the 1860s – 1990s.
Simply specify your site/area of interest, and we will research to see which years are available at which scales; and whether a full sheet or extract would best suit your needs.
There is no charge for the search and we usually have results within hours or the following day.

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.
