Global Mapping Collects More Awards

Online PR News – 26-May-2010 – – Brackley based Global Mapping collected two more awards at the International Map Trade Association European Conference in Bayonne in SW France.

The Peoples Map London Mapping picked up the Silver Award for Best Digital Product. The Peoples Map is a project aimed at producing a database of the Britain and Ireland showing every street. The concept of Peoples Map enables any individual or organisation to create and maintain maps of Britain by ‘drawing’ features like roads, land use and point of interests over aerial photography, using simple online editing tools.

The information is checked and compiled to create high quality cartographic maps in various scales that can be used either as a source for finished maps or as the basis for the creation of new maps. The People’s Map data is free from third party copyright, with fair and straight forward licensing.

The World Atlas picked by the Gold Award for Best Atlas. Published by Millennium House, the Atlas incorporates cartography from EARTH, the limited edition World Atlas, but at a more down to earth price!

Global Mapping MD, Alan Smith said “ We are proud to have been involved in both of these project right from the start and are still involved today through our retail outlet MapStop”
