This product is updated annually
This is a raster (flat image) product, so it's quick to load and simple to use.
Motorways and main roads stand out, but you can also see country lanes clearly.
Places of interest, including camping and caravan sites are clearly shown.
1:250,000 Scale Colour Raster is free to view, download and use for commercial, education and personal purposes.
1:250,000 Scale Colour Raster product can aid with:
Encourage tourism in your area
With lots of tourist attractions featured, it’s a great map for your website to help visitors plan days out.
Enhance a leaflet or sales brochure with a map of your local area
You can open the files in image editing software and cut out the area you need.
Colour Raster is not available in monochrome. Some GIS applications let you load the colour image and choose a greyscale option from an on-screen menu. This will change the colours on an image to shades of grey (greyscale). On a true monochrome map, features would be either black or white. This wouldn’t be the best way to display 1:250 000 Scale Colour Raster.
Palette of 256 colours
