jri Posted August 19, 2011 Share Posted August 19, 2011 There's now a way for people who use the Chrome browser to see Ordnance Survey maps of Great Britain on Geocaching.com I've written a Greasemonkey script that adds an OS map type option on the Geocaching Maps Beta page. It also works on geocache pages when you use dynamic maps. The script displays OS Landranger (1:50000) and Explorer (1:25000) imagery from Bing. I've written the script to work with both Chrome and Firefox. For Chrome, you don't need to install Greasemonkey - just install the script from userscripts.org (link below). Chrome and Chromium have been able to run userscripts directly since v4, but I've only tested with v13. For Firefox, you need to install the Greasemonkey extension ("How do I use this?" link on userscripts.org). I've tested with FF5 and 6 on Windows and FF3.6 on Linux. Firefox 5 broke Greasemonkey, but this has been fixed in Greasemonkey v0.9.8. To find out more or install the script, visit the Geocaching Map Enhancements page on userscripts.org Quote Link to comment
