True Display Technology - see your maps as the cartographers drew them. We reproduce all of the maps on screen or paper exactly as they are supplied to us. We don’t twist them and we don’t downgrade their quality. Not all mapping apps achieve this. If you look at say an Ordnance Survey map it has grid squares that are square. OMN reproduces that square as square on your screen or on paper. Many competing systems don’t, so they have to take the beautiful maps the Ordnance Survey produced and stretch and twist them which obviously degrades the quality. It’s...

A note from Susan Harvey of Harvey maps about maps for walkers. I have known Susan Harvey of Harvey maps since the very early days of Anquet. I believe we had our first ever meeting at the first Outdoor Show at the NEC in Birmingham. In a recent phone conversation Susan and I were contrasting Harvey maps with the massive organisation we all know as the Ordnance Survey. Although I have visited the Harvey offices numerous times over the years, it was obvious as the conversation progressed that I didn’t understand quite as much about their unique map making process...
