Map features project
Take photos of features on the map of your local area. You can work with a friend.
Note the grid reference for each feature as 2 letters + 6 figures: eg NT 123 456.
Save them together and we will ask you to upload them later. Work out the best way of doing this for you: keep them in a folder, tag them, name the photo as below … If you keep a checklist, you will see what you have done. You might be able to add a link to the relevant photo.
