Quality Cartography Services

Outlook Maps prides ourselves on providing the most comprehensive and quality cartography (map designing) services available today.

Quality cartography work requires two, equally important facets: accuracy and style.

Attention to Accurate Cartography

In order to create accurate maps, a cartographer must 1. Have access to reliable sources of data, and 2. Be able to input and work with many layers of data to build a map.

1. Cartography Sources

The creation of accurate maps begins with accurate, reliable, and up-to-date data. Outlook maps uses only the most reliable data sources including:

2. Cartography Software

Another important aspect of accurate cartography is being able to reliably access and use the data. Outlook Maps uses state-of-the-art mapping and geographic software to accurately assemble and layout all maps.

For proprietary reasons, we don't reveal specific software used.

Attention to Cartography Visual Styles

What really separates Outlook Maps apart from other map designers and publishers is our attention to artistic visual styles.

Our goal, quite simply, is to create the most beautiful maps in the world.

We know that in the age of GPS, mobile electronics, and digital maps that paper maps for navigation are seeing their last days.

That's why our company, from day one, has instead focused on creating stylish designs of maps that will look spectacular on display.

Graphic designers at heart, our cartography team is especially skilled at using vibrant colors, intense 3-D shading (known as "shaded relief"), artistic styles, and photo-imagery enhancement to take maps to a whole new visual level. Our maps will make an aesthetic centerpiece of your home or office decor.
