As experts in this field we have developed our own best practice mapping offer in parallel with fwd product, our ‘ready to go’ range of signage design, brings to clients a high quality, cost

effective solution to their pedestrian wayfinding requirements.


This article is constructed to illustrate our best practise principles and structured approach to map design developed to two levels of detail specification. Both levels can be drawn from either Ordinance Survey or royalty free source data.


To achieve our standard map draw, shown on the right, we progress through the following stages of production.


• base source

• road draw

• road names

• river

• railway

• greenspaces

• primary building footprints

• base building footprints

• 2D Buildings

• content (text and pictograms)

• walk time

• you are here

• off map pointers
