We customize maps


Our forte is the design and production of custom maps.





A custom map is one that meets the client needs in terms of:
    ·        map area
    ·        map scale and size
    ·        map content.
    ·        map branding.
A custom map shows what is needed, and leaves out what is not required. With sound cartographic design, a custom map is attractive, easily readable and graphically tells the required story.
We design maps


In designing maps, it is essential that the potential map users needs are identified.

Once this is done, we design the map keeping these needs in mind.

Sound cartographic design requires close and analytical attention to each element of the map, ranging from:

    ·        assigning visual hierarchies,
    ·        decisions about line weights and styles,
    ·        design of a colour palette,
    ·        choice of type styles and size,
    ·        right through to judicious type placement.
    ·        good symbol design
Computer cartography allows a great degree of flexibility, and with the power of Illustrator, MAPublisher and GIS software the map design is an evolutionary process.

We print maps, and more


 

Depending on the client brief, we can take on all, or any part of a mapping project.

This could range from initial concept, to research, field checking, and through the interlinked evolutionary stages of cartographic design & production.

Where necessary, we can take responsibility for, and organize, either digital or offset printing.

We design and produce GEO referenced maps!


 

Geo Referenced Maps are Interactive maps.

Interactive maps are a powerful new way to comprehensively map and locate information in ways that hard copy maps just cannot do.

Interactive maps are produced as geo referenced PDF’s which are then loaded onto a portable device, namely a smart phone or a tablet. Then using a FREE app; and if the map user is in the area covered by the map the map user’s location can be accurately determined on the map via the portable device´s GPS.

Added benefits are that information can be plotted and recorded about locations, place-marks can be imported and exported, distances and areas measured, and the location of that stunning photo can even plotted.

We map GIS Data


 

A geographic information system or (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyse, manage, and present spatial or geographical data.

GIS applications are tools that allow users to create interactive queries (user-created searches), analyse spatial information, edit data in maps, and present the results of all these operations’

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia)


In the right format, data can be mapped, visualized and interactively analysed.

Sound cartographic design skills will portray complex data, in a way that spatial relationships are easily seen and any analytical process will be facilitated.
