A Mastermap plot is a hard copy, graphic map tailored to your needs. The
mapping is large scale and site-centred. Produced from the Ordnance Survey
topographic database, Mastermap can deliver customised graphic plots for
anywhere in Great Britain. Mastermap has a wide variety of uses including:
The very latest available survey
Incredible detail and accuracy
By placing your site at the
centre of the plan, you see your area relative to its surroundings, plus
detail no longer falls across sheet edges.
It is also cost effective
because you only pay for the area you want
Mastermap can be delivered in a wide range of paper or film sizes.
Utilising the National Topographic Database, a plot can be produced at any
scale, from 1:200 to 1:10 000 (original scales are 1:1250 in settlement areas,
1:2500 in rural areas and 1:10 000 in moorland areas).
The plot size is only limited
to the paper or film width and to a maximum length of 3 metres. It can
also be rotated to follow linear features
Plots can no longer be
rotated but can be 'cookie cut' to take in only the area of interest
Pricing is infinitely
variable, calculated from both the area of ground covered and the
original survey scale of the mapping. For example, the minimum
price of £25.00
would purchase approximately 8.7 hectares of Settlement data or 31
hectares of Rural data.
Full colour mapping is also now available at a
small charge of £3.00.
If required, Mastermap can also
be supplied as traditional National Grid sheets, for archive or library
purposes, 1km x 1km in rural areas, 500m x 500m in urban areas
