Thread: What are the best on-line sources of OS maps including contour lines?

  1. #1

    What are the best on-line sources of OS maps including contour lines?

    I have used the following free url

    http://getamap.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/getamap/frames.htm

    for some years, but it's now been discontinued. What's folks recommendation on the best way to view a map of ground on a PC and see the contours etc?

    Thanks

    Hi JCS
    I don't know what type of phone you have , but I have an Android smartphone
    and use the Back Country Navigator App.
    Super bit of kit for 6 and gives you all the maps you need to navigational quality.
    I use it when stalking on remote areas and enter waypoints to ensure returning to the correct place
    for recovery. Has most of the functions of a good GPS too.
    You can download them when on wifi and save for use at your leisure.

    Cheers
