Ordnance Survey: Online Maps of England and the United Kingdom

UK Ordnance Survey is the national mapping agency of Great Britain. It hosts a ton of geographic information about the UK including maps, educational material, and games.

If you have an ancestor who came from or lives in Britain, you may find map material to help you trace them on the UK Ordnance Survey. For the most part, the mapping information is free and current, rather than historical. You may have to jump through a few free registration hoops to access the free maps. More extensive maps and resources are available for a fee.
