National Map Reading Week

The week of 17-23 October is declared UK National Map Reading Week by Corporate Member Ordnance Survey (OS).

In the words of OS:

- Whether you would like to improve your own skills, or are a parent or teacher leading the next generation, during National Map Reading Week we will be providing help and support with all kinds of map reading and navigation.
- Being able to read a map is a hugely useful skill. Understanding how a flat piece of paper can show the real world helps improve spatial awareness in children, and is a critical life skill for adults.
- As part of National Map Reading Week you can find information, ideas and activities to boost your abilities, whatever your age or knowledge.

All the details at the OS link below . .
