Overview

The Civil Protection Map is a set of pre-styled map layers that can be used by all tiers of UK Government to produce clear and coordinated maps that can be used in times of need.


The layer formatting allows any XMAP for Government or Parish Online user to plot standardised symbology (provided by Ordnance Survey) on the map to build up a picture of a state of preparedness or an active situation.


The layers align to these activities:

  • Assets
  • Command, Control, Coordination or Communication Sites (C4)
  • Incidents
  • Infrastructure
  • Cordons
  • Cordon Areas


Availability and Contributions

These layers are available in all Parish Online accounts and all XMAP for Government accounts and have shared editing permissions, meaning all tiers of government can contribute to the map.


The maps will be kept private to government organisations or published to the public as required, and depending on the use-case.
