Being able to read a map is a fundamental life skill and the basis of all outdoor activities. We want to create an annual event that encourages everyone to improve their map-reading skills!

During Map Reading Week, Ordnance Survey and other outdoor organisations will be providing help and support with all kinds of map reading and navigation. Whether it’s planning a journey using a road map, finding an address or even creating your own map, we want everyone to share the passion for these practical art works.
