Symbols-the Key to map reading


The Ordnance Survey symbol for a battle is crossed curved sabres/cutlasses


The aims of this set of lessons are 

1. To understand the need for symbols in any map

2. To use the key in the Philips Foundation Atlas to find a range of places, features and countries

3. To learn the most commonly used symbols in Ordnance Survey maps (and to think about the best way to learn and memorise them!)

There’s lots of useful information here.
