Description

I am a real fan of the UK's Ordnance Survey (OS) 1:50000 maps. I own very many of them and am always delighted to have an excuse to get one out and pour over the wonderful details that one can find in them. I also do a bit of computer programming and in the Summer of 2009 I did some research to see if I could combine my love of maps with gigapans and this is the result. At that time I couldn't get permission to make the images public but a while ago OS relaxed their rules ...

For anyone visiting the UK I strongly recommend visiting leisure.ordnancesurvey.co.uk Will open in a new tab or window/. Anyone interested in writing their own applications should check out the very splendid openspace.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/openspace Will open in a new tab or window/.

    Thanks for the comments guys. Which one of you is going to do the US version at the same scale? :-)

    I am impressed that you U/L this and is a companion to the Scotland OS Map, www.gigapan.org/gigapans/26999/ At the moment, this is the seventh largest file on gigapan.org ... congratulations :)
