As we announced in a prior weblog post the UK Data Loader is replacing the OS Information Loading tools presently provided within ProductivitySuite, and we have given that announced the retirement of ProductivitySuite at the finish of 2019.
From the 1st January 2019 all upkeep renewals of ProductivitySuite will be replaced by a subscription for the UK Data Loader and a licence for the ArcGIS Pro Information Interoperability Extension. The price for a single use licence will be similar to what you were paying for a single use licence for ProductivitySuite. There will be no web site licences for the UK Information Loader but concurrent licencing is accessible.
Many of our buyers are already utilizing the UK Information Loader and if you would like access, ahead of your renewal, please e-mail [email protected] or speak to your Buyer Success Manager. If ProductivitySuite is part of your ELA, we will switch this to the UK Information Loader and ArcGIS Pro Data Interoperability Extension at your ELA renewal, but you are entitled to access to the new tools beforehand and can request this through the e mail above.
The UK Information Loader currently supports:
OS MasterMap Highways Network (the replacement of OS MasterMap ITN which is getting retired at the finish of April 2019)
OS MasterMap Topography Layer, which includes modify only updates
We will shortly be releasing a new version of the UK Information Loader which will add support for:
OS VectorMap Neighborhood – enhanced solution due for release later this month.
Please note: for OS Vector Map Regional we will only be supporting data loading from the newly accessible GeoPackage format. We suggest you amend your OS Order to request the data in this new format if you want to be able to continue processing this information.
We will be adding help for OS AddressBase by the finish of 2018.
Customers licenced for the UK Information Loader will be entitled to use ProductivitySuite in parallel and we will continue to help ProductivitySuite until the end of 2019. Even so, if you want to load the OS MasterMap Highways Network or the OS VectorMap Neighborhood (from the October release) you will need to have to migrate to the UK Data Loader and ArcGIS Pro.
