Keskadale virtual field trip

Overview

This small virtual field trip provides an opportunity to explore the arcuate ridge at the head of Keskadale, below Robinson Crags in the NW Lake District. The field area is very compact, and the geomorphology is fairly straightforward.

Ordnance Survey Open Maps

Access to open maps from the Ordnance Survey. The functionality is much more limited than offerings from swisstopo or the USGS, for example. There is a subscription service that provides access to aerial imagery and the excellent OS Outdoor Leisure Maps. If you want to look at the latter for free, use Bing Maps.

In addition to its own mapping, this site provides access to published 1:50,000 and 1:25,000 Ordnance Survey Maps. You need to select these from the drop-down menu in the top right-hand corner of the main window, and they will only show at certain zoom levels. Satellite imagery is also available.

Can you help?

In order to support the ongoing development of this site, it would be really helpful if you could let me know why and how you use the resource. I’d also appreciate hearing any ideas you may have for improvements. Thank you!

ABOUT

This website allows you to explore glaciers and glaciated landscapes using virtual field trips. High quality, 360 degree interactive panoramas (panospheres) allow you to look all around and zoom in on features of interest – a bit like Google Streetview ©.
