Government does a lot of stuff with maps, and if you like maps you might like to know about this clever trick for finding every single one that gets published on GOV.UK.
Start off at the Publications page, which by default shows you everything - all publications, on all topics, from every department. Look closer, though, and you'll see the filter tools on the left that allow you to drill down to the stuff that you're interested in.
For maps, then, click the "Publication type" filter and select Maps from the list. The list of tens of thousands of publications is suddenly reduced to a much more manageable few dozen.
If you're a really keen map addict (some people are), you can use the updates tools at the top of the filtered list to sign up for an email alert every time a new map is published, or grab a RSS feed (shout out to the RSS massive).
We're just using maps as an example, but there's lots more you can discover lurking behind the publication filters. Whether you want to see open public consultations on business and enterprise or independent reports published by the Department of Education or perhaps transparency data from the Treasury, it's all there.
Either way, enjoy the maps.
