How will this affect the Ordnance Survey's position?
Anyone have any idea which services have been covered by NIMSA?
DCLG considers that:
(a) it is appropriate for some of the services which have been supported by NIMSA,
to be procured directly by those public sector bodies who require them, either
individually or collaboratively; and
(b) it is appropriate for DCLG to continue supporting some national interest
geographic activities but on a much smaller scale than previously.
DCLG has therefore decided that:
(a) the current NIMSA arrangement with Ordnance Survey will be terminated with
effect from December 31st 2006; and
(b) DCLG will continue until further notice to support the operation of a national
geospatial metadata service (currently known as gigateway).
In addition, DCLG will continue to fund the work of the GI Panel including the
development of a GI Strategy for the United Kingdom.
