About Us

Active Maps : Cartographic design and production

Active Maps Ltd was set up in 1998. We enjoy all aspects of creating maps from the initial discussion with potential clients and then seeing the map take shape through production and completion.

Royalty Free

We specialise in creating royalty free mapping using opendata. This is a cost effective approach for the publishing industry as we only charge a one off map creation fee (often comparable to royalty costs if using copyright data such as Ordnance Survey) and then there are no additional costs for reprints.

Stress Free

We will discuss with you all aspects of the project to help bring it to fruition, from size, scale and format to design, production and publishing - whether in digital or print. We will work with you so we understand exactly what and who the map is for and keep you involved throughout the project. Proofs are sent to you at key times so not only will you be able to see how the project is coming along you will also be able to give feedback on any aspect of the map.

Besides the maps we can design and produce complete publications including text and photos, front and back covers.
