Why a HARVEY Map
Here at HARVEY Maps, our products are made by walkers for walkers. Find out more about why our maps stand out from the rest and why you should choose a HARVEY map for your next adventure.
View our slideshow of how we make each of our maps, from data capture to the finished product, and watch a short video on how the maps are printed to be tough, light and waterproof.
Walking for pleasure is a glorious activity enjoyed by people of all ages. It is the map that opens the door to exploration of new places enabling people to find enjoyment in fresh views, different countryside and interesting wildlife.
HARVEY Maps was set up to produce maps that would give people the freedom to enjoy walking, cycling and running in open spaces. We passionately believe a map should be clear and easy to read - an aid, not a challenge. Given British weather, we also said from the start that they must be waterproof if they are to be used outdoors.
mapmaking is an art as much as a science
We think it vital that our maps are detailed, so users can find their way confidently. To be reliable they also need to be up-to-date. To achieve these aims we construct our maps from original air surveys. That way we can spend extra time on the contours and we leave off things you don't need when you are using the map outdoors - so no parish boundaries.
Our skilled team of cartographers concentrates on making each map pleasing to the eye, but above all serviceable and reliable.
Users tell us that HARVEY maps are the best in the field when it comes to navigating in the hills. This is our aim. We invite you to try them for yourself and we hope you will join our fan club!
