#94. THE MAP WON ORDNANCE SURVEY'S GEOVATION CHALLENGE. The London Cycle Map Campaign was one of six winners of the GeoVation Challenge 2011, run by Ordnance Survey. The theme of the competition was ‘How can we improve transport in Britain?’. Over 150 individuals or teams entered from all over the country.
Ordnance Survey have been around since the 1700s and are the national mapping organisation for Britain, as well as one of the world’s largest producers of maps. In other words, when it comes to maps, Ordnance Survey really know their stuff! There could hardly be a more prestigious backer for Simon Parker’s London Cycle Map. Indeed, the Chair of the competition judging panel, Roland Harwood, wrote that the map was "one of the judges' favourite innovations".
The experts love the idea of a London Cycle Map – all that’s left is for the authorities to implement it. Please support our campaign and together we can make it happen.
