William Roy of the Royal Engineers, which was used for a new survey of the distance between Greenwich, London and Paris. This work provided the basis for the subsequent Ordnance Survey of the counties of Britain. For his part with Roy in this work he received the Copley Medal in 1795. He died five years later at Brighton, England. *In computer science, a field name identifies a field (field (computer science)) in a database record or other data structure. *In the United Kingdom, each field (field (agriculture)) has or had a field name often seen on old parish maps, tithe maps and early and pre Ordnance Survey maps. * A field name can also mean the geographic designation for a piece of land (Toponymy) History of color printing Woodblock printing on textiles preceded printing on paper in both Asia and Europe, and the use of different blocks to produce patterns in color was common. The earliest way of adding color to items printed on paper was by hand-coloring , and this was widely used for printed images in both Europe and Asia. Chinese woodcuts have this from at least the 13th century, and European ones from very shortly after their introduction in the 15th century, where it continued to be practiced, sometimes at a very skilled level, until the 19th century—elements of the official British Ordnance Survey maps were hand-colored by boys until 1875. Early European printed books often left spaces for initials, rubrics and other elements to be added by hand, just as they had been in manuscripts, and a few early printed books had elaborate borders and miniatures (miniature (illuminated manuscript)) added. However this became much rarer after about 1500.

Ordnance Survey grid reference (British national grid reference system) for Culloden House: The Nine Standards offer a better viewpoint than the Ordnance Survey trig point that marks the actual summit of the fell. Cross Fell and Great Dun Fell can be seen to the north west and Wild Boar Fell and the Howgills (Howgill Fells) feature in the south west. The High Street Range (High Street (Lake District)) of the eastern Lake District can be seen further to the west. Great Shunner Fell, crossed by the Pennine Way, and Rogan's Seat lie to the south east. Etymology Enfield Wash was first recorded in 1675 and on the Ordnance Survey map of 1822, from Old English ''(ga)wæsc'' 'a place that floods': there was probably a ford (Ford (crossing)) here where Ermine Street crosses Turkey Brook.

If the larger islands are added the coastline, as measured by the standard method at Mean High Water Mark, rises to about 19,491 miles (31,368 km).
