Ordnance Survey (OS) is helping cities develop ways to become smarter using location. OS is leading the way in geospatial development and standards for Smart Cities, and is sharing its expertise across the globe.

OS is developing its products around a range of new data propositions to support Smart Cities. These include new attributes, such as:

  • building types for profiling purposes and 3D
  • integration with underground asset data
  • modelling sensor/actuator range
  • interior spaces for public pathways through buildings.

Data-sharing is a critical component of making the smart city concept work, but differences in the semantics, syntax and quality of information collected by different organisations can hinder it. Using location is a very good way to overcome these barriers.
