About the product

As one of our range of backdrop mapping products, Ordnance Survey's 1:25 000 Scale Colour Raster is backdrop map data of our popular OS Explorer Map series for outdoor activities.

It provides a scanned image of OS Explorer Map that can be used with other data in a geographical information system (GIS) to visualise your own information within a geographical context.

With effect from 19 September 2004, the first of the new access areas as defined by the Countryside Agency under the Countryside Rights of Way Act 2000 will be depicted on 1:25 000 Scale Colour Raster which together with the fence-level detail and depiction of contours makes the product particularly useful for analysing data in rural areas. For example, overlaying your own information onto a backdrop of 1:25 000 Scale Raster map data enables you to view the extent of countryside access to plan routes for navigation aids.

Both our paper maps and digital data will be revised on a rolling programme as the access information is supplied to us. If your map falls across two regions it is possible that your map will not show all Access Land. For futher information on Access Land visit

1:25 000 Scale Colour Raster is supplied in a range of delivery options and is fully compatible with other Ordnance Survey digital data.

National coverage available.
