Ordnance Survey data for #Wikimedia Commons

On its website, the Ordnance Survey, makes mapping data available in both a vector and a raster format. The cool thing is that this data is available under a license that is compatible with what we do.

The template
Because of the license and because such maps are so useful, Multichill is working on making the raster data available on Commons. All these separate rasters are not really convenient to browse these map of Britain. Needed is a tool that helps with moving from one map to the next. Multichill is working on a template called "Map tile navigation" that is to do the trick.
Thanks,The template
