Formerly a non-ministerial government department and executive agency, it has since April 2015 operated as a limited company incorporated in England and Wales ('Ordnance Survey Ltd'), the entire share capital of which is held by the Secretary of State1 on behalf of the government2. Ordnance Survey collects, maintains and distributes the most accurate and up-to-date geographic information for Great Britain in accordance with its public task and this data is used and relied upon by government, business and individuals3.
