Mapping

A lot of the work we do is mapping related and we have now built up considerable expertise around mapping, especially, but not exclusively, mapping of the UK and Ireland both for use on our our site such as WalkLakes but also for other people and customers of our mapping related products have included the UK Map Centre, Durty Events, Walkhighlands, and Ofcom.

Our Map Server

We have our own map server which serves a set of tiles covering the whole of the British Isles including all of Ireland and the Isle of Man. We call these tiles "WayMaps" and they are a good alternative to Ordnance Survey's OpenSpace Pro server if you're using too many tiles to stick with their free OpenSpace server. We are also considerable cheaper.

Creating Tiles for You

Our geographic information system (GIS) which we used to create the tiles used on our map server allows us to create custom map tiles rendered in any way you require. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Mapping on the Web

We can create mapping applications for the Web in JavaScript using either our map server or third party servers like OS OpenSpace, for example our app aimed at walkers. If you need an application written, or help writing your own application, then we can help.

GeoServer

We can help you set up your own GeoServer to serve map tiles for your application.
