Coronation Street's Ordance Survey map

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog September 2014, reposted to this blog with permission.)

Ordnance Survey (OS), one of the UK’s leading map specialists, have mapped out the set of Coronation Street. Basing their work upon the set of the show in Salford Quays (England), the work covers streets of the town and footpaths in traditional OS format along with building outlines carrying business names or house numbers, whilst also offering second-screen style character details where relevant to the building.

Ordnance Survey representative Rob Andrews said of the map: “This has been a great project and highlights Ordnance Survey’s commitment to accurately map the rapidly changing face of Great Britain. This is one of the most famous streets in the country; however, it is only one of 87 other Coronation Streets which feature on the OS database.”
