What is GoView.co.uk?

What type of maps does GoView provide?

GoView provides 3 Ordnance Survey maps instantly for each property.

  1. A detail map based on the 1:1,250 map - accurately depicts the property and building outlines
  2. A street map at 1:25,000 scale - shows the property location, street names and places
  3. A town map at 1:50,000 scale - identifies the location in relation to the town

The maps are provided electronically in JPEG (or JPG) format. JPEG provides a suitable format for professional printing and use on websites optimised to ensure quality. JPEG is a global standard supported by all major software providers. Map file size can vary but approx 450k.

What area of mapping can I access?

GoView provides access to the whole of mainland Great Britain so you are not limited in anyway.

Where can I use the maps?

The maps are ideal for sales and letting brochures, details and reports; for use in website promotions and property listings plus window displays.

Do I need a template change to use the maps on my brochures?

GoView maps are provided as Jpeg's and can be inserted into brochures in the same way as photographs. Either directly into your template (e.g. Word document) or uploaded into your Estate Agency software (e.g. Vebra, Reapit, DezRez etc). Therefore, if you have space available a template change may not be necessary.

However, if you want to take full advantage of GoView you may want to make a change to you template so quality mapping takes pride of place on your brochures! Find out how other estate agents are using the GoView maps in their property particulars.

Can I put the maps on our website or 3rd parties?

Yes. You can add the map images onto your own property particulars or add them to your own property listing websites so long as your company holds an Ordnance Survey Paper Map Licence. You also provide a link to them in particulars published on a 3rd Party listing website.

What is a Paper Map Copying Licence?

A simple annual licence issued by the Ordnance Survey which for 54.75 per annum, or less if you are part of a group of offices, will cover all your likely copyright issues regardless of the number of copies.
