Digital Maps

A Word about Digital Map Design

Our digital maps are designed for viewing on a monitor or for projecting onto a screen. The resolution is 72 dpi and the map dimensions are typically 1024 x 768 pixels (the standard size for most LCD projectors). Map labels are larger than those used in printed maps and the amount of information therefore is often reduced, both for reasons of space and because people cannot study a map projected onto a screen in the same way that they can study the details of a printed map.

Digital maps are ideal for teaching, presenting papers at scholarly meetings, and websites and blogs.
