CARTOGRAPHY AND MAP MAKING

While using our own geographical data set or any available open geospatial data source, our team is highly skilled to create maps for different purposes and needs. We are well experienced operating with open geodata of Sweden, Norway and Finland as well with other data sources. The creation of map starts with data acquisition, compilation and processing in common database which is followed by .mxd file creation which stores the symbology, layout and other customization. Then comes finetuning of the map, improvement of readability and visualization. Our experience in preparing and providing maps cover such areas as tourism, sport, property management, transport and aviation.

Printing houses are ready to fulfill printing on demand according to requested technology, paper (or other material) quality, print-run, post-processing (cutting, folding, stitching, laminating and more). This gives us an opportunity to find the most cost-efficient solution in terms of quality, delivery time and costs.

LARGE FORMAT MAPS AND INFORMATION BOARDS

Outdoor information board is often the first information source for the traveler who is visiting the place. Detailed maps are supplemented with descriptions and information about place or tourism destination. Sizes and materials for stands varies a lot – from small ones devoted to sightseeing object to several square meters big boards with information about the region. Plastic or aluminum composite material, covered with anti-graffiti ensures long-life using. For sure, large format maps might be useful not only outdoors, they can be attractive interior design elements as well.

Maps for Baltic Coastal Hiking Guide

“We have had a good cooperation with Jāņa sēta for a long time. One of the visible and the latest works is the creation of Baltic Coastal Hiking Guide – around 1200 km long hiking route along the Baltic Sea coast between Riga and Tallinn, where Jāņa sēta prepared 60 map sheets (1 cm = 1 km) for one day walks, as well as a common route overview map. These thematic maps include information about interesting sights and services – accommodation, catering, shops, recreation places etc. Jāņa sēta maps are a modern and high-quality product, and is useful for both travelers and specialists in different fields.”

Kungsleden map & guides series

“When we started this project, my requirement was that the maps and guides should be available in bookstores before the start of the active tourism season. We started in January and in May the series of 5 map + guide sets were in our store. It was really intense, focused and purposeful job to all the team: cartographers, text editors, translators, graphic designers, producers and project managers on both sides. This project was a visualization of what can be called outstanding teamwork.”
