Ashfield District Council
Walks in Jacksdale - Wharf Green and Smotherfly

These delightful maps are full of good cartographic design. Although limited in the volume of work due to the small size of the areas, the application of the cartographic principles of selection and simplification is particularly effective as is the representation of the footpath data introduced from another source.
The maps are aesthetic, clear and easy to interpret, an attractive enhancement to the promotional literature. To quote one of the judges: 'It does exactly what it claims'.



Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
Bespoke Map of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea

This entry demonstrated how MasterMap data can be integrated with information from different sources to create an imaginative and useful product. The map sits well within the Borough's overall travel mapping application and fulfills its role admirably.
The end result is Aesthetically pleasing and effectively communicates the base mapping in a clear and user friendly manner. A good example of innovative use of MasterMap
