Hertfordshire Ordnance Survey Maps

Introduction

This exciting new Intranet application has been written for us by The Advisory Unit: Computers in Education.

Using the application you will be able to find Ordinance Survey Landranger and Land-Line maps for anywhere in Hertfordshire. The introductory pages in the Hertfordshire OS Maps service explain how the service might be used, there is also a visual walk-though below

Installation of Aegis ActiveX component

The first time you use Hertfordshire Maps on a particular computer it will need to copy a small program onto that computer. This will need to be done on each workstation that the service is to be used on. This program will require this serial number.

If you have a client/server network you may need to seek advice from whomever provides you with network management support.  If you obtain network support from the Hertfordshire School IT Systems Support team then they may be able to supply you will an "installation" package which will reduce the install time for you.  Please contact Iain Gordon, email: iain.gordon@hertscc.gov.uk.
