Put simply it is a place to share, mix and mash maps with a nod towards professional map makers rather than the more widely seen ‘MyMaps’ type applications.
What makes this new portal of particular interest is that maps can be overlayed onto each other in order to compare data. Currently, 76 maps have been uploaded, mainly covering the UK. Available maps are available as thumbnails. Additional maps can be overlayed onto the viewed map either by searching through the available database or by adding the URL of a KML file.
