Carrying and being able to use a map & compass, not only allows us to make the most of a particular area, it allows us to discover new surroundings, builds self-confidence when out alone, and makes the great outdoors a safer place.

In conjunction with Ordnance Survey, our mapping application below will allow you to choose a location, and then print an A4, 1:50,000 / 1:50k OS map to take with you on your adventures.

The beauty of this, is you can plot your route on the map with a pen, mark points of interest, and scribble down notes, without worrying about ruining a genuine OS map.

*Note: You can click & drag the map to change the location and center point.

Once you have chosen your desired location and set the map position, simply click the button below to open your map in a new window for printing.

*Note: Due to variations in browsers & printers, you may need to set your printing scale manually.
We found that setting our printer to print at 74% was perfect. Ensure that once printed, the map squares are 2cm x 2cm for accurate navigation with your compass.
