Ordnance Survey is urging one million people across the nation to get active outdoors on Sunday 30 September for the first ever National GetOutside Day. OS has teamed up with supporters across the country to organise guided walks, cycling and other outdoor activities in a bid to encourage more people of all ages and abilities to get outside more often.

Ordnance Survey (OS) is one of 11 partners in OmniCAV, a £3.9m project to develop a world-first Artificial Intelligence-based simulation model for testing autonomous car safety.
