About UK Map Finder

Welcome to UK Map finder and thanks for dropping by. The site is a free web application that allows you to enter any place or postcode in the United Kingdom, UK Map Finder will then present you with the details of any Ordnance Survey Explorer maps that cover the location entered. Your location and the maps identified are also displayed on the large map area on the screen.

The site has evolved from some simple php scripts I hacked together to find help quickly identify maps required. I found these scripts so useful that I decided to add a user friendly interface and share on the Internet for others to use and benefit from. If you find UK Map Finder useful please send a message with your comments and feedback. We would love to hear from you.

We have a list of new features that we hope to implement over the coming months to improve the user experience and provide even more useful services. My intention is to continue to offer the site free to users but to help pay the running and ongoing development costs of the site you will see a small amount of relevant advertising affiliate links to products. If you find UK Map Finder a valuable tool please help support the site by following any links that you may find useful.


This application would not be possible without the data and services freely available from the OS OpenSpace web services.
