Where’s The Path – UK OS Mapping Viewer And Tool

Where’s The Path lets you display UK Ordnance Survey 1:50K topographic maps side by side with other kinds of maps, including:

  • Google roads/satellite/terrain/hybrid
  • OpenStreetMap
  • 1930s and 1940s OS maps

Cursor movement on one map is mirrored in another; you can import  GPX/KML files, and also draw features on the map and export them to in GPX/KML format. Overlay multiple types of grids (lat/long and UKOS); toggle a Panoramio layer to see photos taken at locations within the map view:


Most annoying aspect is that it’s only for the UK; wish someone could put something similar together for the US.

    Hi Leszek,

    If you like this I think you’ll probably like “Gavin’s Unofficial Overlay” for Google Earth too. This uses OS OpenSpace as well, the Survey know all about it and don’t appear to be concerned.
