|Win a Map Special Christmas Offer How to Buy
The new Custom Made Ordnance Survey Explorer and Landranger Maps allow anyone to customise their own map, choose their own title and select an individual cover image from a wide selection photographs.
Custom made maps were really popular at Christmas last year, as they make a great gift for anyone who loves the British outdoors. They are popular with walkers, cyclists, dog owners, horse riders, cross country runners and holiday makers.
As a Christmas gift, they can be used for planning boxing day walks, looking back at the favourite holiday moments of last year, or planning next the new years’ travels. You can either buy them and upload your own image or buy a voucher to give as a gift.
Matching the existing look and feel of the OS Explorer Map at 1:25 000 and
OS Landranger Map at 1:50 000 scales, which are recognised as the definitive
maps for outdoor activities, the custom-made version will be the same
quality and detail which customers have come to love.
The new maps allow anyone to go online and select their own special location
to centre the map on. Helping to avoid a ‘life on the edge’, the customer
decides what goes in the centre of the map. It could be any location that is
important – someone's home, their town or favourite walk. The maps are
specially printed to order, including the customers' own personal title,
like ‘Our Family Holiday’, for example, as well as a wide choice of selected
You can choose to have the map delivered folded or flat and with or
without a cover so that it can be easily used outdoors or framed for the
perfect print in the home. The maps are available in two scales of detail –
1:25 000 and 1:50 000 – making them perfect for planning an outdoors
adventure or getting active.
