What we do

Cartography

Using tools like Mapublisher and Adobe Illustrator, we create any type of map: from political maps to thematic maps and even illustrated maps. We use existing GEO data or go manual.

We use the same professional tools you use

With us, no hassle with special GIS software that is difficult to edit afterwards without losing that important georeference.

We simply deliver our cards in the latest version of Adobe Illustrator. Our files are fully open, contain several layers and are fully editable in Adobe Illustrator.

We prefer to work with native Adobe Illustrator PDF files. These files can easily be used directly by the prepress team. PDF files can also be easily opened by other contributors such as authors. Last but not least, PDF files allow anyone to add comments so we can quickly work with your feedback.

Of course, we are completely open to your approach. No problem if you prefer a different approach.

Different card types

With a map you can go in so many directions

Our maps are produced with a gooey mix of GIS software and handwork. We can handle basically any type of map, regardless of the level of detail and variety of data sources.

Project Management

As a partner in several large projects, we know all too well how complex such a project can be.

Different stakeholders and employees must all be aligned on 1 line. Then there is the communication with the "draftsman," with whom all assignments must be communicated in a complete and clear manner. Not only those assignments, but also the various improvement rounds sometimes make it a confusing whole.

For larger projects, we will suggest you go beyond the mailbox for project communication. In the system we use, each drawing is a separate task that can have various statuses, e.g. ready for production, in production, improvements needed, clarification needed, ready for printing, etc... With each task there is room to communicate and ask questions.

Through this project management system, you can log in at any time and immediately be fully on board with the state of the project as a whole.

We propose this system as an option to tackle your project, it is certainly not an obligation. Your preferred method of working ultimately determines how the project will actually proceed.

We know the ropes

Years of experience

After more than 35 years of experience, we are still fresh and eager to get to work on your project.

Once started with CorelDRAW 3.0, we have grown with the market over the years and now use tools such as Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop, Procreate, Mapublisher, QGis and so much more.

We are closely monitoring the potential of generative AI and are already using it where it adds value.

How It Works

This is our approach

We start with a detailed look at your assignment. If necessary, we ask additional questions to get everything clear.

Based on the processed order, we will provide you with a price and date for delivery of the first proof.

Only then is it up to you to start the project or not.

During the project, we remain very communicative. Complex assignments can be included in our project management system that you and any stakeholders (publishers, authors, editors) can access if they wish.

Did we mention that we will be discreet about your project?

Multilingual

Dutch, French, English

We are fluent in Dutch, French and English.

We have already carried out several projects in each of these 3 these languages and delivered professional results.

Pricing

Correct estimation of the project in advance

Everyone likes to know where they stand and what budget should be provided to complete certain tasks.

Most of the projects we enter into are based on a fixed price. We do not base this price simply on the number of drawings, but on the concrete content of this drawing. "How much does a map cost?" is therefore a question we cannot simply answer.

Our fixed prices always include normal, expected improvements.

Scalable

Sufficient bandwidth for your project

If your project requires it, we can discuss what is needed to meet deadlines.

We are open in our communication and make sure you have an accurate expectation by delivery date.

Although we can't do magic and don't finish an atlas in a week, we pride ourselves on always being punctual with agreed upon deadlines and deadlines.
