Stanfords Portal offers a simple, cost-effective online tool to pull down basic planning application maps, dxf/dwg CAD compatible map data, 1m/2m and 5m height vector data, BaSEMAP (large-scale map and height data combined), aerial photography data, JBA Flood data, Ordnance Survey mid and small scale map data and Ordnance Survey's Address Layer 2 (AL2) product. Registration for the site is instantaneous and only incurs a small, one off, administrative charge of £1.50 + vat payable online through a secure WorldPay card service.
1. Planning application map files: A4 1:2500/ 1:1250/ 1:500/ 1:200 (pdf/ tiff/ doc)
Unlike other systems, we have included a simple tool for highlighting your boundaries in red or blue (with a single click) before purchase so no more hunting for felt tip pens. The location and block plans are available in several formats including pdf and tiff and, as well as being printed, can therefore also be uploaded as an image attachment into the Planning Portal as part of an online application.
2. Planning maps for larger areas: A3/ A2/ A1 1:2500/ 1:1250/ 1:500 sheets (pdf/ tiff/ doc)
For those instances when the site in question is too large to fit on the standard A4 options. Typically large urban developments or large land holdings in rural areas. Very rarely required to support standard homeowner planning applications/ small developments/ land registry title searches.
3. Stanfords OS Mastermap Vector data 1:2500/ 1:1250 (dxf/dwg CAD formats & GIS shp/ tab)
Stanfords Portal also offers Ordnance Survey 1:1250 and 1:2500 survey scale map data in CAD/ GIS compatible vector formats such as dxf/ dwg/ shape file. This product is derived from OS MasterMap and allows users to add or remove their own data layers ahead of printing or uploading. Software packages such as AutoCAD®/ Microstation or Vectorworks are required to use this type of data.
Ordnance Survey MasterMap data (1:1250/ 1:2500 survey scale) and LiDAR building/ terrain height data combined in a single file . The data is supplied in a GIS compatible shape file format but can be converted to dxf/ dwg using AutoCAD® Map 3D. For those customers who don't already have this version of AutoCAD we have negotiated a 40% discount on the list price for their Map 3D upgrade software. Please contact our Manchester Service Centre on 0845 880 3730 for more information.
5. JBA Flood Data
The JBA Comprehensive Flood Map Product is a high quality spatial dataset that provides users with Flood Map data for England, Wales and some of the major urban centres and rivers of Scotland. As with BaSEMAP above the data is supplied in ESRI shapefile format for use in a GIS or in AutoCAD (if converted to dxf/ dwg using AutoCAD Map).
6. LiDAR Height data
Highly accurate LiDAR height information available as a Digital Terrain Model (DTM or Digital Surface Model (DSM). The data can be supplied in CAD compatible formats such as dxf/ dwg or GIS formats such as ASCI Grid.
7. 5m Height data
Full country coverage of 5m point height information that can be loaded into CAD or GIS software to produce 3D models and line contours.
8. Aerial Photography data
Coverage for England at 25cm. Coverage for most major cities in England at 12.5cm.
9. Infoterra more map
Good quality 3D spatial dataset that includes building heights
10. OS Mid-scale
OS 10k Streetview showing roads and buildings as blocks. Ideal for context and backdrop map data. Available as JPEG or GeoTIFF.
11. OS VectorMap Local (VML)
OS backdrop mapping to provide maximum flexibility in terms of scale and styling.
12. OS VectorMap District
OS Mid-scale product (1:25 000 scale) ideal for overlaying your own information.
13. OS Small-scales
OS 1:25k, 1:50k and 1:250k OS map data available as site-centred sections in JPEG or GeoTIFF formats.
14. OS Address Layer 2 (AL2)
Ordnance Survey's latest address dataset for use in GIS/ CAD. The data is supplied in ESRI shapefile format for use in a GIS or in AutoCAD (if converted to dxf/ dwg using AutoCAD Map).
