OSi’s MapGenie can be consumed directly through any OGC compliant GIS software or web application, potentially allowing all members of your organisation to view and use the best map data available, thereby giving you a significant increase in value for money over traditional methods of data delivery.

OSi can (together with our 3rd party developer partners) provide a service to assist you in developing a bespoke web based application that can provide GIS functionality and access to OSi data (thus reducing the complexity and cost of GIS applications and data usage).
