Self-Published Chamber Maps
Chambers of Commerce can create and publish their own maps. They have the sales staff, artists, and printers among their members. They just need a mapmaker. That's where we fit in.
Maps for resorts must be colorful, clear, and inviting. The resort map is a key ingredient in hospitality. We make different styles of resort maps. Each map is customized to the resort.
Parks and Recreation Maps
Parks and recreation maps are successful when they attract new and returning visitors. Our custom maps are designed to help park visitors make the most of their recreation.
From Excel to Google Maps
An address map is a valuable way of representing points of data. We've been asked to create membership maps for organizations. A request by a church to make a map showing church member addresses inspired us to write up this method of making an address map.
Google Earth as the Crow Flies
Google Earth can make creating radius rings on a map quick and easy. The trick is using the Show Ruler tool. When you've finished, you can import the rings into Adobe Illustrator or into Google Maps where you can share them on a map with others.
Google Maps as the Crow Flies
Google Maps has a scale bar at the bottom of the map. When you need to measure a distance horizontally, the scale works well. But at another angle, you'll have a challenge using it. Instead, easily create radius rings around a point of interest. That makes it simple to measure distances in any direction.
WordPressing Maps into Service
WordPress is the most popular CMS on the Internet. Many websites, in addition to blogs, are developed using WordPress. While Google Maps is often seen on websites, a more custom design map solution is available using Avenza's MAPublisher plug in and Adobe Illustrator.
Vintage Maps in Ads
In a 2013 ad for Ford, a 1950s atlas was used to talk about an engineer who grew up on two continents. Ford's ad does not use a contemporary map. Instead the overly dramatic images from over 50 years ago had the visual punch to make good use of its second of video time.
Take a Vector from Google
Importing points from Google Earth to Adobe Illustrator brings an added bonus: high-resolution vector icons make the journey, too.
