Map of the Month!

Posted by ucfaam0 at Jul 31, 2013 03:09 PM |

Nick Mann from UCL’s Geography Department Map Room picks this month’s map.

This month I have pulled out an OS map of Fermanagh and Tyrone Sheet 45 (Ireland) dated 1903.  A first year student was looking at the map series as she wanted a detailed map of the coastline for her project.   It is one inch to the mile and surveyed in 1833 by Colonel Sir H. James.  The map has wonderful hill shading which gives it the 3D look this was engraved by hand at the OS office, Dublin under the direction of Captain Wilkinson.
