Digital Maps


There are a number of sources of free digital maps of the UK. I have been using Multimap as this now includes Ordanance Survey Maps and aerial photos of the UK. For some locations there are also higher quality aerial photos in the Bird’s Eye view section. The terrain feature in Google Maps is also worth a look. Other sources of maps include  MS Live and the Ordanance Survey site which also includes games and activities to improve children’s mapping skills.

To create our own maps we used the map making activity on the Teacherled website before looking at World Maps through Google Earth.
