Ordnance Survey: Publicity

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 4 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government with reference to the answer of 14 October 2008, Official Report, column 1060W, on Ordnance Survey: databases, if she will place in the Library copies of the promotional brochures for each of the Ordnance Survey products listed. (251967)

I have today arranged for promotional materials for Ordnance Survey products OS MasterMap® Topography Layer, OS MasterMap® Address Layer 2, OS MasterMap® Integrated Transport Layer, OS MasterMap® Imagery Layer, Land-Form PROFILE® Plus, Code-Point® with Polygons and Boundary-Line™ to be placed in the Library.

Ordnance Survey is not actively marketing ADDRESS-POINT® or OS MasterMap® Address Layer, and has therefore not issued promotional material for these products during 2007-08.

Ordnance Survey has not produced promotional material in the year 2007-08 for 1:10 000 Scale Raster, 1:50 000 Colour Raster or 1:250 000 Colour Raster. The current policy is to promote these products via the Ordnance Survey website:
