Ordnance Survey Mapping in AutoCAD

An application enabling easy access to MasterMap Data in AutoCAD


Provides seamless access to Ordnance Survey MasterMap Data for highway design and management


KeyOSC (‘Ordnance Survey Companion’) is an application providing an easy way to access Ordnance Survey MasterMap mapping in AutoCAD. KeyOSC connects to a spatial database providing seamless maps of increasing detail as you zoom in.

KeyOSC is an easy to use set of functions to provide mapping for the CAD professional with performance akin to GIS systems and modern web mapping; and simple plotting configuration tools to ensure standard scale output and rotated views linked to a north point.

KeyOSC enables MasterMap data stored in either an Oracle or SQL Server database to be loaded seamlessly within the AutoCAD environment. It can interact directly with your corporate datasets built using such systems as Dotted eyes' SuperpOSE, Snowflake Software's GO loader or Safe Software's FME. The maps loaded into AutoCAD can be used as a simple, transient overlay, supporting ‘GIS’ activities such as the analysis of road accident locations, or for a base map for your scheme design.


What People are Saying

There are a number of features within KeyOSC Mapper that make putting engineering drawings together much quicker. The loading buffer feature is great for producing engineering drawings that cover a long length of road and is very quick and easy to use.
