Ordnance Survey

Ordnance Survey is Great Britain’s national mapping agency and provides the most accurate and up-to-date geographic data, relied on by government, business and individuals.

Ordnance Survey maps are ideal for planning and taking with you on your next adventure in the great British outdoors.

Their detailed maps offer nationwide coverage at two scales, 1:25 000, OS Explorer Maps and 1:50 000, OS Landranger Maps.

The OS Explorer Map – Active range and selected OS Landranger Map titles are weatherproofed by a lightweight, protective plastic coating that can be written on, so are ideal for use in wet conditions.

Want to get creative?

With Ordnance Survey Custom Made you can adapt your map to centre it on your campsite or activity to show the area around your chosen location.

Want to have fun?

MapZone® is a bright, lively site produced by Ordnance Survey and is a free enjoyable way to learn mapping skills through interactive games for 7 to 16 year-olds.
