My kids love to draw and colour, but I want to trick them into learning too…. in these difficult times I’ve used some of my mapping skills and some cool Ordnance Survey OpenData (Open Zoomstack) plus some magic from Esri ArcGIS Pro to make the first in a series of A4 maps to colour in.

You can download my first A4 PDF here to print at home here, yes it is of Sedbergh my hometown here in Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.  I hope to do more and different papersizes.


All of these are at a scale of 1:10,000 this means you can compare these!  The strange coverage is based on requests I am receiving, want somewhere else? Leave a comment below and I will do my best to make it! (oh and yes I know it’s not listed alphabetically!)

These are derived from an Ordnance Survey dataset so I can make one for you to if you want (any paper size provided you have the printer!), leave requests in the comments below.

You can read more about some of the processes I use here in a previous blog posts.


  1. This is brilliant ! I’ve printed one each for my boys to colour, they love maps. I’m just wondering if it would be possible for you to make one for Launceston Cornwall. I used to live there before moving to sedbergh just under 2 years ago and currently am a trustee for a charity for children with learning disabilities that’s based there . I would love something like this to share with our parents 😊

  2. Brilliant, thank you Elliot! Im going to print both off and so the kids and i can work out where everywhere is🙂!
