Major changes to Explorer maps
« on: March 14, 2015, 09:19:16 AM »
The Ordnance Survey has announced major changes to the numbering system and the method of indicating the date and extent of the revision of each edition of the Explorer series. Full details are at http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/docs/collateral/ordnance-survey-leisure-map-catalogue.pdf.

Thanks for letting us know Hugh, it seems a significant step forward in being able to easily know whether you have the most up to date version. I can't help but wonder why they are going to release all the new versions on the same day in June though - it must be a major logistics exercise!
