Presentation

British Antarctic Survey
South Georgia - Wildlife and low flying avoidance map

The British Antarctic Survey (BAS) is a component of the Natural Environment Research Council. Based in Cambridge, it has, for almost 60 years, undertaken the majority of Britain's scientific research on and around the Antarctic continent. The Mapping and Geographic Information Centre (MAGIC) provides maps and other geographic information to workers at BAS. It acquires topographic data in Antarctica, prepares new maps, maintains databases of digital maps, supplies printed maps to BAS staff and provides expertise in geographical analysis.

Their winning entry is a combined map and booklet product which was judged to be well produced and very clear. Its format makes it suitable for cockpit use and, importantly in the context of this award, the cartography communicates the original theme very effectively.

COMMENDED

Geo-Innovations
FCO Briefing notes - UK Representation at International Organisations

Geo-Innovations emerged in 2003, forming the newest sector of parent company Alan Collinson Design. They're Britain's leading exponent of world terrain visualisation and 3D mapping, and by using their Geo-Globes have given cartography depth and sometimes even a sunset or two.
Their commended entry was considered to have been very well produced and communicates effectively. It is a good use of an interesting global projection and demonstrates excellent use of colour.
