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 site such as WalkLakes but also for other people. Customers of our mapping related products have included Walking Britain, the UK Map Centre, Durty Events, Walkhighlands, Heliplan, the Country Gentlemen's Association, 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 (which they have now deprecated by the way).

We are also considerable cheaper and, unlike Ordnance Survey who only cover England, Scotland, and Wales, we cover all of Ireland, both north and south.

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.


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