We provide custom built maps to travel guide publishers across the world. Some publishers get maps designed in their existing styles and specifications, while others bring us a simple idea which we develop in an interactive and informative travel guide. As each travel guide is made to serve a different set of clientele with a different set of interest area, hence we always keep that in mind while designing maps. Our cartographers are assisted by our travel researchers and editors so that the maps are made correctly.
Some of our projects are:
Diving South East Asia
Footprint Handbooks, Bath, United Kingdom
This guide was published by Footprint as part of their series on activity guides. The guide is aimed at diving enthusiasts across the globe and covers 400 popular diving sites, augmented by maps and photographs. The challenge was to show the ocean bathymetry in vivid and distinctive colors so that readers can make out the depths of the diving spots easily. These maps are among the most colorful attractive maps we have ever produced.
Times food guide Delhi
Bennett Coleman & Co Limited, New Delhi, India
Bennett Coleman & Co. limited is the publisher of Times of India daily. The newspaper had an idea of producing Food guides for cities in India with reviews of top eating joints across the city. Since the budget was low, the challenge was to make a small and economical food guide which introduced readers to the concept of rated restaurants and the maps couldn’t be very elaborative ones. Our cartographers therefore came up with simple black and white maps along with indexing, saving the number of pages and also provided fair level of details.
