We are just looking into moving from MapServer to GeoServer for some of out WMS needs, one of which is to serve OS MasterMap to our users. Before I have a go at creating the SLD styles for MasterMap does anyone have any they have created that they are willing to share?
If you are still looking for some SLD files I have attached a link to a zip file with SLD and QML for OS MasterMap. These were created using QGIS and so may need some tweaking to work with GeoServer.
I can not help you directly, but I have two suggestions for indirect procedures:
1) If someone has the appropriate styling available for you as ESRI ArcMAP lyr-files an easy way forward is to generate SLD-files using GeoCat Bridge
2) Geoserver as WMS-forwarding. This means you can cache up any WMS-service and forward it for internal (or external) use. You should of course make sure you are not breaking any copyright regulations for the primary WMS-layer.
Other than this I can strongly recommend using Geoserver.
Youve probably sorted your requirements by now but there's now a set of SLD's available under opn licence: https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/support/products/styled-layer-descriptors/index.html
Thank you Julian. 5 years later, the link to the SLD files has changed to https://github.com/OrdnanceSurvey/OSMM-Topography-Layer-stylesheets
You can use the GetStyles SLD operation on a MapServer WMS to get an SLD representation of the style used by MapServer
