Ordnance Survey Mapping Tech to Benefit Ambulances
19 September 2023
The National Mobilisation Application (NMA) has been developed in collaboration with mobile data experts Terrafix and delivers the most up-to-date and detailed mapping of Britain’s rural and urban areas including highly accurate road and addressing information.
This means that all NHS services will be accessing and using the same and most authoritative addressing and mapping data in Great Britain, and ambulances no longer need to be taken off the road to download the latest mapping and navigation data.
The PSGA licence enabled Terrafix to integrate OS addressing, roads and mapping products such as OS Zoomstack, OS MasterMap Highways Network and AddressBase Plus into the NMA, bringing navigation in line with the same OS datasets in every NHS computer-aided dispatch (CAD) system used in emergency control rooms across the country.
