Where did I get these maps from??

Recommended Posts

Hmm... It seems I found some very detailed maps online somewhere last December, but I have absolutely no idea where now. The maps are ones like this one.

 

Very detailed, showing paths, direction of flow of streams, and no grid lines. Does anyone happen to know where I might have got them from?! I do have a subscription to OS Maps, but none of their offerings match this level of detail.

It is very similar to the "terrain" layer on google maps, bing and some of the cycling/walking apps.

The unusual bit though is the flow arrows.

I tend to avoid water!

 

I knew it! You're a Mogwai aren't you?

It's getting towards midnight, and I'm feeling rather hungry. Can you help...?

 

On the original topic, I've e-mailed OS about it, but don't realistically expect a reply for a while - if ever. Just 7* annoyed that I didn't make a note of where I got the maps from...

Exactly. There's a chance I might have Photoshopped several tiles together, but I certainly would not have put flow arrows in! Never even noticed them until today. And the typeface doesn't seem like an OS one?

It looks like a an alternative presentation of OpenStreetMap data to me. After a bit of searching I found www.opentopomap.org which seems to be what you were looking for.
