A six-month implementation has just been completed in partnership with emapsite, the leading exponent of online geographic data solutions and official Ordnance Survey Licensed Partner.

The resulting implementation enables users to move seamlessly between Google Maps and OS MasterMap without leaving roadworks.org. The solution combines the OS detailed street information needed for operational streetworks and traffic management planning with the deceptively simple power of the world’s favourite online map, with its user friendly cartography, StreetView photography and Satellite imagery.

“It is good news that OS MasterMap has returned to roadworks.org and that the public sector via Public Sector Mapping Agreement, can once again access the nation’s most detailed topographical mapping via Elgin services”

Graham Hughes, Public Sector, Ordnance Survey

Elgin’s choice of emapsite, an official Ordnance Survey Partner company, for this integration was governed by the requirement for a commercial service plan that scaled for our business needs - complete flexibility and customisation where required and a fantastic support team that worked seamlessly with our project delivery team to deliver a best of breed service.

The result is a harmonious integration of the Google and OS MasterMap mapping experiences delivered via the latest cloud based technology. We believe this integration on a national level of Google Maps and OS MasterMap, provided under password control to public and private sector users is an industry first.
