XYZ Digital Map Company
XYZ Postcode Sector Map – Sheet 22

The XYZ Digital Map Company’s Postcode Sector of Inner London sits on the background of the People’s Map. This was considered a great example of cartography, a map that clearly communicates its information and doesn’t confuse the intended user with too much information, it was to the point and fit for purpose.

Land and Property Services
The Mournes Activity Map

One of a series of five 1 : 25,000 scale paper maps, it is an activity map that is designed specifically with the outdoor enthusiast in mind, it is rich in content, supplying the user with lots of relevant information, nicely balanced but not overdone. The activities are marked out and easy to follow. The judges felt that the map would have benefited from the inclusion of GPS information as it is aimed at international users..


Stirling Surveys (on behalf of Mellor Archaeological Trust)
Heritage Walks around Mellor

A map that provides excellent information through clear cartography, the judges noted that the map would have benefited from being of a larger scale.
