Walking maps – part of what are defined as “Physical Maps”

We use all the techniques available to favour an immediate and clear legibility, from the scale, to intuitive symbols, to shadow relief. We care about including special features, such as fountains. which are important for any walking map.

We add more quality to our maps by the careful mapping of vegetation – one of our trademarks! We also produce summer maps and winter maps of the same area.

Maps with trekking Itineraries will open and showcase the territory and are ready-made for tourists.

Combined with a webpage link these itineraries can be described in detail with photos and a digital version that can be uploaded and used on a smartphone.

Software like Avenza Maps is ideal for this. A solution with this as an example can be seen by accessing this link

3D maps

These maps are very effective when the morphology is strong, outlining evident landform features.

Small scale maps covering extensive areas with an exaggerated height to length ratio offer immediate interpretation, excellent with inexperienced map readers.


Another type of 3D map where aerial photography is illustrated with symbols and annotation, or in a more geometric correct way aerial imagery can be draped over a DEM and similarly annotated and illustrated with symbols.
