FIND March 2011 Newsletter

It's an exciting time for FIND as we recently launched our new web portal www.findfreemaps.co.uk. The site is free to members of the public but not for commercial use. So far we've had thousands of hits from 90 countries in the first week alone.

The portal brings together free mapping including OS Opendata and Google maps, it includes access to some of the free UK government data that is on our professional www.findmaps.co.uk web portal.

Its key differentiator from other free mapping websites is that it has a useful mapping toolkit to allow you to customise your own map and save to PDF in a neat template. It's not nearly as advanced as findmaps in its functionality but is very simple to use for members of the public.

Try the 'Your Google Map' feature. This allows you, for the first time, to customise every colour on a Google map for the whole world. If you like it, please let your friends and family know about the site.
