London Discovery Trails now on PhotoRoute

Following the success of our Southbank mapping work with the Greater London Authority (GLA) have commissioned us to work with them to create their new Discovery Trails across London. They have put together six unique walking routes across the historic city centre that will take you on a journey of discovery to the greatest sights and sounds of London. The GLA choose our unique photoroute map authoring tool to illustrate the trails and make sure that everyone can enjoy them.
Keep an eye out for official Games mascots Mandeville and Wenlock, who’ll be bringing the trails to life and highlighting some great photo opportunities. Each will be individually designed, animating the routes in a unique way that captures the spirit of London. The trails will be colour-coded and each will cover a unique area of London and take you through quirky streets to majestic monuments allowing you to discover London without the hassle of public transport or traffic jams.

In addition to maps being available in print, website and embeddable formats we also developed native iphone and android apps on the mobile apps. With advances in technology these apps have been superseded with inclusive web apps meaning maps are available on any touch screen device without having to download an app.
