Latest maps from Cartographic Design team

Following on from yesterday’s feature on our Cartographic Design Consultant Charley Glynn, we wanted to share some recent examples of work from the Cartographic Design team.

Youth Hostel Association map

Working with the Youth Hostel Association we were asked to produce a large wall map that was to be used as part of a campaign to encourage people to explore the Dark and White Peaks.

The map would be simple and would need to depict 6 carefully selected walking, running and cycling routes and the terrain around them.

The image below is essentially work in progress as the finished product will see the image be used by the YHA to cut out the layers making up the terrain from wood. The routes will then be added using pins and string. We’re really looking forward to seeing it up on display.
