Snow Depths on Google Maps

#UKSnowDepth Map

Geography teacher Tom Barrett thought he would use the opportunity of the recent snow falls in the UK to create some learning resources related to the conditions. Using Google My Maps Tom is trying to crowdsource snow depths across the UK.

If you live in the UK you can add your snow depth to the map by finding a flat surface, measuring the depth of snow in centimetres and adding a marker to the map. If you are a geography teacher Tom also has a number of ways that you can use the map and information with your students.
