Maps & Cartography

April Sky has the experience and expertise to produce bespoke maps for any need. We have produced more commercial map publications than any other Northern Ireland-based private sector company. We draw on first-hand experience of publishing street maps for Northern Ireland towns over a number of years.

April Sky works closely with Ordnance Survey of Northern Ireland (part of Land and Property Services) and is privileged to be a fully licensed Partner. This means that we have the right to hold a copy of all OSNI mapping data and come recommended by OSNI. We regularly receive updates to our map data to ensure that we are using only the most up-to-date information.

Types of maps we produce include:

  • Street maps (flat or folded)
  • Tourist literature with integrated maps
  • 3D “bird’s eye view” maps
  • GIS maps to illustrate numerical data
  • Varying scales: national, regional and urban
  • Relief maps
  • Maps for outdoor and indoor interpretive panels

NIMA: In many cases, public sector organisations do not have to pay for the use of OSNI data. This reduces costs substantially. April Sky is experienced working within the Northern Ireland Mapping Agreement (NIMA) framework. Please ask for details.
