Meridian™ 2

About the product


MeridianTM 2 is a mid-scale digital representation of Great Britain that allows considerable customisation of its transport network and topographic themes, which means that the user can create functional geographic solutions for their business needs.

All of the geographical features are extracted from existing Ordnance Survey databases and are fully maintained in order to deliver an annual product update. When used in conjunction with users own compatible data the resulting application is a truly useful GIS asset.

The product is typically viewed at 1:50,000 and at this scale the generalisation of its features maintain geometric integrity and accuracy.
