There is an interesting research project currently being undertaken by Ordnance Survey about mapping and how people plan, carry out and record their outdoors activities.
OS is looking to recruit people from all areas of outdoors pursuits and as an incentive, everyone who fills in the survey will be in with a chance of winning one of three £100 vouchers for their favourite outdoor retailer.
You can find the survey here: http://www.bit.ly/outdoors-2013
I always enjoyed the cartography element of my geography degree and I love a map – as my wife: I have to buy one whenever we are going somewhere new! So this is a great chance to contribute to the future of mapping.
