Ordnance Survey Map Scale Measurers

Q. I found your site on Friday and think it will be really useful.

I had some brief lessons on how to navigate this weekend so have started reading your section on Hill Skills > Navigation Skills

In the section Hill Skills >Navigation Skills > Ordnance Survey Map Post-it Scale you mention the OS scale.

I recently purchased a similar Map Scale Measurer from

Map Mates in Cheadle Hulme, Greater Manchester

It is essentially a piece of acetate with a square for both 1:50,000 and 1:25,000 which makes it really easy to identify exactly where you are from a GPS reading.

It wasn't very expensive and the company delivered it to me very promptly (and the text doesn't wash off in the rain unlike my home made one!)

Regards

Jane Fontana, Bedfordshire
