OS 10k Raster: 5km x 5km Tiles
We have it available in 5km x 5km Tiles and in the following formats: Backdrop Colour Raster (washout), Black and White Raster, Colour Raster - these products replace the old Landplan styled 1:10 000 Scale Colour Raster.
OS 1:10k Raster
OS VectorMap Local 10k Raster Tiles are provided in GeoTIFF format, which means that you may not need to download geo-referencing files as this information is built into the files.
If required the 1:10 000 Scale Raster georeferencing files that share the same naming convention as VectorMap Local so they can be used - details below:.TIFF World Files (TFW) that can be used to geo-reference raster data in ESRI® ArcView® and ArcInfo® together with TAB files for use with MapInfo®.
TIP: The georeferencing files should be saved in the same directory as the files of the map tiles themselves.

OS VML 10k Raster Tiles replaces 1:10 000 Scale Raster
The cartographic style used for 1:10 000 Scale Raster was developed in 1995 and customer feedback indicates that this is no longer the styling that most users require.
Ordnance Survey have therefore developed three distinct raster variants of OS VectorMap® Local Raster: Black and White, Colour and Backdrop Colour. The colour versions have been developed based on user feedback and use a careful use of colour. They have created a palette acceptable to users including those with colour vision deficiencies (colour blindness). OS VectorMap Local Raster has also been designed to match the output styles of other Ordnance Survey’s products.
