Hello, I have a question about UK maps and one of the tiles providers. I am new in UK region thus my question could be a bit strange.
Many boroughs in London lack of basic details like buildings and house numbering (some areas like Fulham barely have any). I did some research and from available open source datasets I can see that the OS have a much better building and house numbering representation than OSM have.
Yes, OSM have several versions of OS layers, but the ones that are available barely have enough details (my guess that OSM simply reusing the dataset that you may freely download from the OS site). OS states on their site that they might provide more granular data for different non-profit / open for everyone projects. So the question is simple, is it possible somehow to get their latest tiles with the same quality as we may see them on for example https://historicengland.org.uk ? See screenshot below to check the available granularity of OS tiles:
This tiles have boundaries for all buildings and often have better and usually more correct house numbering both comparing with Google and OSM.
