Features and benefits

Historical maps help to provide a unique step by step insight into the development of land use that has occurred between the 1840's and the present day.

Originally Ordnance Survey created a grid network of individual map sheets that cover the country in jigsaw type tiles but modern mapping now uses a streamlined continous dataset to display OS Data, meaning that sourcing older maps for one area in particular can be a headache! However, with MapInsight packages, the searching and piecing is done for you.

Choose from:

  • A3 PDF extracts - You choose a centre point and year required and we cleverly piece together all available mapping in that location and year onto one map frame. Ideal from locations close to the edge of an original map sheet.
  • A selection from 1:1250/1:2500, 1:10,000 and Full Historic (both 1:2500 and 1:10k) packs to find the right area coverage you need

View before you buy You can now view a low res preview of the actual map sheet for confidence prior to purchase. This works similar to any eCommerce website that has a “zoom roll-over” feature that allows you to view the map in much greater detail as you move your map cursor. Try it out!
