Data as a Service

Technical Support

Esri UK provide a variety of online services some of which are free and some of which are premium services.

The free services include

Five GB basemaps designed to be used as background mapping, providing a seamless map view from national level to street level with a consistent style. The basemaps are hosted in ArcGIS Online and are available by default in your basemap gallery.

Locators help you find locations and geocode within the ArcGIS platform. At Esri UK we have built three locators which are free to use in the software:

  • Code-Point® Open is an OpenData postcode-level dataset providing a point location for all geographic postal codes in Great Britain. The gazetteer service allows geocoding and postcode searching against this dataset.
  • OS Open Names is an OpenData dataset that includes place names, road names and numbers and postcode for Great Britain and includes 2.5 million locations. The OS Open Names locator allows geocoding and searching against postcodes, street names, road numbers and places all in a single locator.
  • The BNG Locator is a coordinate system locator that allows you to enter coordinates in British National Grid format for example TL12341234 or 123456,123456. This allows you to navigate to a known grid reference.

Our Premium data delivers basemaps containing national coverages of OS MasterMap Topography layer, VectorMap local and the OS Premium Raster datasets.
