The Spatial Information Service (SIS) represents local government’s interests in the One Scotland Mapping Agreement (OSMA). This allows the whole of the Scottish public sector to access and use Ordnance Survey (and other organisations) geospatial data products for their own business purposes.
SIS ensures that the OSMA community has access to local government’s geospatial data and address information via the Spatial Hub and One Scotland Gazetteer.
OSMA is funded by member organisations who contribute an agreed percentage. The current OSMA terms runs until 2023.
