Inspired by Ordnance Survey’s blog post about UK Hill Figures I started wondering how these hill figures appear on the detailed maps in Digimap for Schools and if I could draw my own.

The fantastic detail on the OS maps in Digimap for Schools feature the Hill Figures, and make it possible to interpret the land around them and think about where they may be seen from.

So how about having a go at drawing your own hill figure?  You can make it anything you like using the wide range of Annotation Tools in Digimap for Schools.

Think carefully about the location for locating your hill figure, do you want it to be seen by as many people as possible, or do you want it in a secret location that only intrepid explorers venturing into the wilderness will come across?
