Premium Ordnance Survey map content on Tableau
viaEuropa is compatible with virtually any source of digital map content. The service already includes support for a number of Ordnance Survey products including OS OpenData™, but also has full support for OS VectorMap™ Local and OS MasterMap® Topo/ITN. The service is ideal for public sector organisations as it provides easy-access to map data sets covered by the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) or One Scotland Mapping Agreement (OSMA). Current clients includes central and regional government, local authorities and police forces. It can even be fused with your own map data to create a stunning base map that is bespoke for you. The service can integrate multiple map sources allowing a user to seamlessly zoom through levels of detail, each supplied by a different digital map product.
