I used to use maps(Paper one you fold up) from these people! I LOVE EM!

Gotta love the UK :D

Also... Its old...

EDIT: Shame its not a recreated map of the UK where all the buildings were remade... Maybe someone should start up a project for that.

From what I understand you are able to reuse it and create your own version, so someone could very well add buildings in etc which is awesome from the OS to do that

If I speak to my dad about computers and refer to an operating system as an 'OS' he tells me computing can't have that due to Ordnance Survey maps. He has a ton of them and still uses them, as although other things have come along, the detail in an OS map is unsurpassed.

"the detail in an OS map is unsurpassed."

Agreed :)
