UK Government map data on MapTiler Cloud

Published August 7th, 2019

Ordnance Survey map services

Data from the Ordnance Survey, the national mapping agency of the United Kingdom, is available on MapTiler Cloud. They can be viewed as web maps, in mobile SDKs, or as a GIS service (WMTS) with its own map design.

Custom map design for Ordnance Survey data

Official data from the UK Government can be used either on a separate map covering only Great Britain or mixed with global data into one map.

Ordnance Survey maps via free maps API

Ordnance Survey maps are now available for everyone, even with the Free plan. You can find them after you Sign in to MapTiler Cloud, click on Maps on the left menu, and scroll down.

Currently, you can see here four default map styles - Light, Outdoor, Road and Night. All of them are based on the same source, but each has data suitable for a specific use case and it is styled differently. Map styles can be easily adjusted in the Customize tool. It allows you to overlay the Ordnance Survey map over the global map based on OpenStreetMap, add your own data, or do more advanced edits.2019-08-07-uk-government-map-data-on-maptiler-cloud-2.png
