What we do
We are a small mapping organisation dedicated to crafting great topographic maps. We want to make maps for areas we care about, especially if they have great potential but still receive relatively little attention. These are less traveled, beautiful and unique places, like the ones we are currently working on: Armenia and Georgia. Where next?
How we do it
We rely on crowdsourced open data for our basemaps, heavily contributing to OpenStreetMap, and we then combine this data with some more obscure and specific datasets that we discover here and there. It’s a lot of manual work, and it also could not be done without engaging local communities and experts to validate the data with on the ground missions.
We almost exclusively use Free and Open Source software for every step of the way. We are working on removing that ‘almost’ from the previous sentence.
