Award-winning site

9th June 2006 at 01:00
Ordnance Survey has won a gold award in the annual Geographical Association awards for the GIS Zone on its Mapzone website.

The GA awards aim to recognise material that has made a significant contribution to geography in primary schools, secondary schools or colleges, and to encourage the creative development of new materials. The Ordnance Survey site teaches mapping skills by using a combination of interactive play, stimulating questions and answers, and animations and games. The Homework Help section provides a number of resources, free to download and print, including advice on how to read maps, information about understanding scale and a comprehensive list of map symbols. The resources are available in English and Welsh.
