OS OpenData - FREE for YOUR QUO

On 1 April 2010 Ordnance Survey announced the launch of OS OpenData which is an online portal providing FREE and

unrestricted access to a large range of mapping and geographic information.

This means that anyone can download the data, BUT you still need some form of digital mapping system to be able to use the data effectively AND the OpenData is not in Quo format so cannot be easily imported into our leading digital mapping software "Quo" in a useful format.

Mapyx Response

So we at Mapyx want to provide you with the solution to be able to use these products in Quo FREE OF CHARGE.

So the first release of FREE OS OpenData PRODUCTS from Mapyx are as follows:
