Northern Ireland ordnance survey licence requirements

The Crown Estate cartographic teams create digital PDF or raster maps of our activities and interests.

OSNI mapping

Such maps often include data licensed from Land and Property Services Northern Ireland. This places an obligation on The Crown Estate to ensure end users of those plans are aware of restrictions, which are as follows:

  • LPSNI data is made available solely for viewing;
  • the licence granted to the viewer shall grant no rights greater than a non-exclusive, royalty free, revocable licence to view Ordnance Survey Data and/or LPSNI Data for non-commercial purposes for the period during which we make it available;
  • the viewer shall not be permitted to and shall not copy, sub-license, distribute, sell or otherwise make available Ordnance Survey Data and/or LPSNI Data to third parties in any form;
  • third party rights to enforce the terms of the licence shall be reserved to Ordnance Survey or LPSNI;
  • LPSNI maps and maps created from LPSNI material are subject to Crown Copyright. The mapping may not be further sub-licensed, sold, demonstrated, lent or otherwise transferred or exploited without the prior written permission of LPSNI. LPSNI maps are available from all leading booksellers; and
  • LPSNI shall not be held liable for the Map material not being fit for your purpose or applications.
