Mapping

Maps Formats Available and their Terms and Conditions

The standard Royal Observer Corp (ROC) nuclear monitoring post maps are printed on an U.K. outline map with a grid overlay. This makes it difficult to assimilate the locations of numbered spots with the physical layout of the towns and cities. When the Ordnance Survey made available a free base map, it opened up an opportunity to make a more meaningful map

Over a considerable period of time, I have plotted all the 837 mainland ROC Posts on an Ordnance Survey base map. Unfortunately the lack of a Northern Ireland base map means Belfast No.31 Group is plotted on an outline map only. I am making my efforts available free of charge, so that you may benefit too. In return, I ask that you don't sell my maps or remove the attribution box from the maps.

After plotting so many points, I can't guarantee they are without errors. If you do spot a typo, please get in touch so I may correct it. My contact details are on the homepage via the "Introduction" tab.

Ordnance Survey Copyright

The OS Terms and Conditions require you agree to display certain text on their maps. I have added this text, but you have to agree not to remove it.

It may seem 'odd' but printing and using a map displaying the Copyright notice is legal, its removal is illegal.
