City and Tourism Maps

If your organization or municipality publishes annual visitor or travel guides, I can work with you to create beautiful maps to include in your guides. I use government OpenData that you provide or can download OpenStreetMap data for the area.

Each project starts with a consultation and presentation of a design brief and estimate, itemizing the content for the map as well as any style options requested. I can work with your branding guidelines. Price includes three rounds of revisions and delivery of print-quality PDF or PNG file.

The offerings below are an example of my services. Each package is fully customizable: there may be content or deliverables you don’t need or wish to add. You can also create your own package by selecting multiple overview or locator maps.

Cycling Tourism Map

As part of Ontario’s cycling strategy the Ministry of Tourism, Culture & Sport has introduced a cycling tourism plan. Organizations can use maps to promote tourist-friendly cycling routes and businesses.

This map can be as detailed as a city map, showing a tourist cycling route through the city (only a part of the full cycling network infrastructure), or it can be a variation of a city or region overview map, highlighting major communities and landmarks with a simple cycling loop.
