Catalog » GIS Essentials

GIS Essentials is a collection of key presentations for GIS managers and GIS users in the UK. The UK's geospatial strategy is set by the Geospatial Commission, whilst access to Ordnance Survey's extensive library of UK GIS data is possible via the Public Sector Geospatial Agreement. Essential information about both are included in GIS Essentials. There are also a series of presentations outlining different OS datasets accessible through the PGSA. These GIS datasets offer GIS users highly accurate spatial & attribute data at a range of map scales, in vector and raster format. The GIS Essentials presentations provide key information for GIS managers and GIS users in the UK on getting the best out of this library of quality GIS data.
