Ordnance Survey App – How to create custom routes – Part 2

In my last video and blog, I demonstrated the Ordnance Survey Online App interface and discovering routes created by others.

The digital platforms provided by Ordnance Survey, online and mobile, are a much welcomed addition to their already established and vast array of hardcopy paper maps which I’ve been enjoying for many years.

In Part 3, I will dive deeper into How to Import and use the Ordnance Survey Mobile App.
