*Where's The Path
Overview

'Where's the Path allows users to compare the UK's Ordnance Survey maps alongside Google Maps or Open Street Map. The two maps are synchronised, so if you pan one map the other map pans to show the same view. The application is a very useful resource, particularly for hikers. The Ordnance Survey map has far greater detail than Google Maps about public footpaths and other off-road features. Google Maps on the other hand allows you to view satellite imagery alongside the OS map.'

ALERT 'Google have recently ended free use of their mapping services by medium volume websites. For now, WTP is running on limited daily quotas so may fail on you from time to time. As of July 2019 the OSM Landscape and Cycle maps have had to be removed for cost reasons - sorry.I am actively looking for ways to keep the site running in 2019.  Thanks for all the support over the years. Bill Chadwick.'
