Maps are a fascination to marvel at. From showing the exact locations of major points of interest in an area to going into every little detail regarding the topography, geography, and infrastructure of a location we are interested in. Map making, or cartography as it’s also called, has been a necessity and an art since the dawn of human civilisation. Maps have helped humanity explored unchartered territories, find something invaluable, win battles, or even navigate from one part of town to another. In UK, the premier mapping agency with a rich history is Ordnance Survey.
As the name suggests, Ordnance Survey started out as a military survey first to map the Scottish Highlands and then the whole of Britain by a young William Roy in the mid-18thcentury due to fears of the French Revolution spilling over across the English Channel. The map making, using a hitherto unknown technique of triangulation, was so superior in detail than previous commission maps, that the British government officially made the Ordnance Survey a formal entity in 1791. After 225 years of existence, we have mapped the whole of UK for personal, commercial, government, and military purposes and we constantly update our mapping database digitally too. Our maps can be used as physical folded booklets to help you explore the countryside, or for satellite navigation to go from one city to another. Our expertise is also used by countries around the world to help create case studies and maps for them with the same detail and precision as our UK maps as well, especially the modern demands for geospatial capability. The accuracy and precision of our maps remain unchallenged and the Ordnance Survey has become one of UK’s great institutions for their due diligence to detail. You can have your personal maps too for both physical and digital platforms! Our online shop also sells products and outdoor gear from famed satnav and mapping brands like Garmin, GoPro, Polar, SatMap etc.
