Ordnance Survey, the national mapping agency of Great Britain, will be launching in September a new international organization, Ordnance Survey International. The aim of this new international service is to help other countries around the world un-tap the potential of accurate geographic information (GI) by promoting the nation’s knowledge and expertise overseas and by providing expert advice and services in fields such as data collection and maintenance, product development and geospatial data management. Over the past decade there has been a global recognition of the importance of geospatial information, this initiative will enable international customers to develop and enhance their own business requirements while reaping the benefits.
