The very best, commercially developed platforms usually carry a hefty price tag, reflecting the ongoing development work they need.
Now, we’ve partnered with multinational earth observation specialist Airbus to develop a new, commercial quality geospatial data service, currently available at no cost to members.
The service offers highly accurate, detailed current mapping (with unlimited download capability) and spatial data.
Airbus is a leading developer of geospatial platforms, as well as aerospace and engineering resources for government bodies.
The Intelligence Programme Line of the Airbus Defence and Space division provides satellite data to multiple industries, to decision makers and analysts who require a precise, remote and ranging view of our globe.
Who is the service for?
Geospatial data is available to further and higher education members. It helps researchers, lecturers and students who need an accurate tool for manipulating and adding layers to maps and spatial data to support research and learning in the arts, humanities, earth and life sciences and engineering.
The shared service delivers excellent user experience to our members, with features including:
Current and contemporary Ordnance Survey (OS) maps and data, including gazetteer and postcode information
