The national mapping agency of Great Britain is extending its range of all-weather, plastic coated maps following high demand from consumers and trade.
The active map range produced by Ordnance Survey, which can be written on with washable ink, has already proven to be very popular with walkers, off-road cyclists, horse riders and those who enjoy outdoor activities. Following the success of OS Explorer Map – Active and with such a strong consumer appetite for 1:50 0000 scale all weather maps, Ordnance Survey is extending the range to include all 204 titles in the OS Landranger Map series.
Now Ordnance Survey has every part of Great Britain covered in this versatile active map format. In 2007 it introduced 25 all-weather titles of its 1:50 000 OS Landranger Maps. And since then there has been a growing demand to make the entire OS Landranger Map series available.
Richard Tyrrell, Product Manager at Ordnance Survey, said:
“Our active range of all-weather maps has proved to be very popular. And now we are seeing an ever growing demand for our 1:50 000 scale maps available in this format from consumers and trade.
Paper maps still very much have a place in the market, particularly if you can offer more versatile and useful products for our consumers. And it’s certainly not bad timing to be launching more waterproof maps as we continue to get deluged by heavy rainfall.”
The retail price will remain at £12.99 and the full range is available from today.
