Ordnance Survey has begun an exciting new project that sees 15 people take on the challenge of making us a more outdoorsy and adventurous nation.

Outdoors enthusiasts can build impressive collections of Ordnance Survey maps, but it often means they’re not using the most up-to-date maps to get outside and explore Britain. Up until 20 March, OS is offering avid explorers the chance to return their old maps and receive money off new map purchases in return.

We are OS

Our data is vital to the nation’s wellbeing. We make seven updates every minute of every day, mirroring our constantly changing landscape.
