  • Geograph Britain and Ireland is a web-based project, initiated in March 2005, to create a freely accessible archive of geographically located photographs of Great Britain and Ireland. Photographs in the Geograph collection are chosen to illustrate significant or typical features of each 1 km × 1 km grid square in the Ordnance Survey National Grid and the Irish national grid reference system. There are 331,957 such grid squares containing at least some land. Each page uses a Geo microformat. Geographs are being collected for all parts of Great Britain and Ireland. The Channel Islands fall outside Britain's grid system, but may be geographed using their local UTM grid. The project is sponsored by Ordnance Survey, and extracts from the OS Landranger 1:50,000 scale maps illustrate the grid square pages. Geograph Project Limited, is a Charity Registered in England and Wales, and the name Geograph is trademarked.
