1 Geography Hydrosphere Rivers on OS Maps: Worked Example[Date] Today I will: - Practise answering past paper questions relating to rivers on OS maps The map used is that of Upper Wharfedale which can be found free on courtesy of Digimap for Schools. Describe the physical characteristics of the main river on the map.
