OS MasterMap Sites

The OS MasterMap Sites features are a representation of what people see in the real world, where the common view of something (such as a school) is not the address, the main building or the playing fields, but is the site as a whole.

OS MasterMap Sites does not indicate the definitive or legal extent of a site, but rather the extent of usage or function, represented as polygons. Vehicular and pedestrian access points are also provided.

This product is updated every six months (April and October).

OS MasterMap Sites - Access All Areas

Access all areas

As well as a polygon describing the extend of a site, OS MasterMap Sites contains access points. An access point refers to a functionally designed and maintained location where pedestrians and/or vehicles can enter or leave a site.

Access points are point features which are usually positioned on the boundary of the functional site extent to which they belong. They can also contain access information such as height and time or vehicular restrictions. The access point also references the nearest OS Highways Network link TOID. This allows the user to easily integrate the data with other OS datasets such as the OS MasterMap Highways.
