Printable os maps
« on: 13:26:42, 19/09/17 »
hi again!!,


Help needed again!, as I said in a post the other day I am off to wales soon and I have ordered an os map of the area online and was wondering is there a site where you can print off a free os map?, if I decide to go on a walk in a location I will only be visiting once it seems a waste of money buying a map of the area.


Cheers!!

If you use Bing maps you can select the  map type to Ordnance Survey and then print

I just tried that and when I print it wastes a lot of space not getting a lot on a sheet, any more ideas.

Use the snipping tool to select the part you want, then print that.  I use it with various mapping programs.

There are various snipping tool plugins for browsers. I use one called Lightshot for the Chrome browser. They're handy tools anyway.
