Public Sector Geospatial Agreement

The Spatial Information Service (SIS) represents local government’s interests in the Public Sector Geospatial Agreement (PSGA). This replaced the previous One Scotland Mapping Agreement (OSMA) on 19 May 2020. It enables 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 PSGA community has access to local government’s geospatial data and address information via the Spatial Hub and One Scotland Gazetteer.

The PSGA is funded by member organisations who contribute an agreed percentage. The current PSGA terms runs until 2030.
