Map Symbol Flashcards, a twin-pack of specialised playing cards, one featuring illustrations, the other matching descriptions in words, have been launched by Ordnance Survey, price Pounds 4.99. They can be used in a series of games such as bingo and snap or in practical map-making exercises to help children recognise and memorise symbols and abbreviations used in OS's national Landranger series.

With the help of the British Antarctic Survey and Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research, OS has produced a wall map of the world's coldest and loneliest continent. OS has also produced a geological map of the UK and a political map of the British Isles to join other titles in the series which include four world maps, two of Europe, and five "themed" maps of the UK or Great Britain.
