Where's the Path v3

An old Google Maps Mania favourite Where's the Path? is now out in a new version that has been optimised for use on tablets and smartphones.

Where's the Path allows users to compare the UK's Ordnance Survey maps alongside Google Maps or Open Street Map. The two maps are synchronised, so if you pan one map the other map pans to show the same view.

The application is a very useful resource, particularly for hikers. The Ordnance Survey map has far greater detail than Google Maps about public footpaths and other off-road features. Google Maps on the other hand allows you to view satellite imagery alongside the OS map.

Ans, for those of you obsessed about whether Google Maps or Open Street Map has better map data, Where's the Path allows you to compare the two maps side-by-side to your heart's content.
