Is there a way of inserting Ordnance Survey grid reference in a print composer? I know that a grid can be created but I don't wish to insert a grid, I just to need to include the eastings and northings as a text string in the title block.

  • do you want any specific grid reference in the title? centre of the map? top left corner? – Ian Turton Aug 26 '17 at 10:49
  • You should be able to create a custom function similar to gis.stackexchange.com/questions/226436/… to get the center of the map pane – Ian Turton Aug 28 '17 at 11:45
  • Thanks for the suggestion. The example inserts a scale label but I need an OS grid reference label. I have no experience of Python so can anyone adapt the custom function text for me? – user27726 Aug 28 '17 at 19:49
