INSPIRE data to be shared under open terms

HM Land Registry and Registers of Scotland are set to share their coveted INSPIRE spatial polygon datasets.

From 1 July 2020, INSPIRE spatial polygon datasets which map more than 23 million title extents across England, Wales and Scotland will be available on the Use land and property data service and Registers of Scotland’s website.

The new less restricted terms will broaden commercial use, creating opportunities and fuelling innovation in land and property, utility and infrastructure-related industries. The news follows the Geospatial Commission’s April announcement of the Public Sector Geospatial Agreement (PSGA), including Ordnance Survey’ (OS) new freedoms for the publication of property extents.

The PSGA gives access to new data while improving accessibility and increasing freedoms to share it. This change in OS’ derived data policy has paved the way for HM Land Registry and Registers of Scotland (RoS) to improve access to their spatially-enabled INSPIRE datasets. In this case, the combined data, detailing over 23 million individual title extents based on the OS MasterMap Topography Layer, is now available under less restrictive terms under Open Government Licence (OGL). The change opens this data up to much broader application across the public and private sectors, particularly in the UK’s exciting PropTech space.

This date also marks the launch of OS’ new portal for accessing its data – OS Data Hub, as well as a series of APIs (application programming interface) with up to £1,000 price per calendar month free use of premium data and unlimited use of OS OpenData – all intended to support innovation in the developer community.
