Some Web Sites to help you

For more advice with map symbol identification for go to the fantastic Geograph site.  Not only will it show you an example of the feature on an OS map but it will also show you a photographic example.  This is a fun and easy way to remember the symbols.  The links to each section are below.

Roads and Paths – Make sure you know the differences between motorways, A roads and B roads (also known as secondary roads)  Look at all the different types of juntions so you are familiar.

Land Heights and Rock Features – This shows the land height and contours as well as features such as cliffs and outcrops of rock.

Land Features – this is excellent as it covers all the features on the ground that have standard map symbols such as churches, windmills and beacons etc to name just a few.

For a pure return to year 7 you can have a play on mapzone – see the links bar
