Licensing agreements

Landgate is committed to operating its pricing and licensing policies in a fair, open and transparent manner. We encourage the innovative use and development of our products by providing a wide range of licences that focus on how our customers wish to use our products and the rights we grant with that use.

We have a suite of standard licences, as listed below, that cover the provision of our products for use within a customer's business, as an end-user, including for the trial of our various products.

We also have a suite of standard agreements for those wishing to operate as an onseller of Landgate products, including opportunities to enter into new business arrangements with Landgate. If you already know the type of licence you need, just complete the relevant application form.
