The Service

The OSM-GB provides Web Feature Service (WFS) according to Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard. This can serve vector output of the OSM-GB datasets through HTTP requests and responses.


The WFS currently serves the following 8 vector layers:

A sample request: http://www.osmgb.org.uk/ogc/wfs?SERVICE=WFS&VERSION=1.0.0&REQUEST=GetFeature&TYPENAME=OSM-GB-Vector:Roads27700&SRSNAME=EPSG:27700&BBOX=447901.707808,337571.014355,453015.418400,341833.260141

Please note that the number of features are huge if no bounding box or filter is applied, which can make a GIS application unstable (around 1.1 million points, 2.8 million lines and 1.8 million polygons so far). So it is not recommended to make a no-filter request. Instructions for QGIS and MapInfo are provided below.

The WFS supports textual/vector output in any of the following formats: GML 2, GML 3.1, GML 3.2, GeoJSON, ShapeFile and CSV.

GIS Applications

QGIS and Mapinfo are the current tested GIS applications.
