GO Loader is the tool of choice for loading and managing Ordnance Survey data within an Oracle, SQL Server or PostGIS database. That’s because before Snowflake Software was even conceived Ian and Eddie, our founders, once worked for Ordnance Survey where they were the technical leads responsible for the creation of OS MasterMap. So you can be confident that our ‘insider’ knowledge has gone into making GO Loader the best it can be for managing Ordnance Survey GB datasets.

Loading Ordnance Survey Data

GO Loader enables you to get the most out of your Ordnance Survey products, with comprehensive support for OS MasterMap Topo, OS MasterMap ITN, all of the new OS AddressBase editions plus OS VectorMap Local. We’re proud of the fact that no other tool on the market manages more national coverage datasets than GO Loader.

GO Loader loads hundreds of millions of OS MasterMap features on a daily basis from Local Authorities to the UK’s leading companies.

Load current and future datasets

We’ve built GO Loader to be different to other tools, its generic loading engine means that it’s not ‘hardwired’ to a particular product or dataset. So when the Ordnance Survey creates a new product or updates a product, GO Loader adapts itself automatically without the need for product upgrade.

GO Loader

One solution for all your GML

The great news for our Public Sector customers is that you can use GO Loader to load all GML products that come under the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) and One Scotland Agreement (OSMA). And of course, because GO Loader is standards based, you can load any GML dataset and are not restricted to just PSMA data (for example OS OpenData, INSPIRE, or Open Street Map).

GO Loader for Ordnance Survey Data

OS style guide plugin

Use our style guide plugin to style OS MasterMap and OS VectorMap according to the OS Style Guide.  Also includes default ArcGIS layers file and MapInfo tab files.

Integrated Transport Network Support

Use the GO Loader ITN Tool to load non-geopraphic data and visualise the routing information in ITN RRI to display precise turn restrictions.

Load geographic and non-geographic chunking

Geographic and Non-geographic chunking options enable you manage your data from within GO Loader.

Load non-geographic chunking to remove the need for duplicate removal or if you need to load geographically chunked data then you are able to remove duplicates directly from within GO Loader quickly and easily.

Manage COU with GO Loader

In order to keep your OS MasterMap and AddressBase data up to date you will need to apply change only update GML ordered from the OS MasterMap online service to your database holding. GO Loader enables you to update only the changes supplied by Ordnance Survey and use its valuable change intelligence to keep your data up-to-date.

Linked to COU, Historical Archives help you create views that go back in time and answer questions such as ‘what did my OS Mastermap look like when I captured my data 3 years ago?’.
