We always look to use the most suitable map base for the customer’s requirements, and can provide the following map bases, either globally or for the UK alone:


Google can be applied globally, and has many different features including Satellite and Street View. It has fast become one of the most popular map bases, utilised for online mapping in a range of businesses. We can provide access to this through our online mapping system (SKiN), so that it can be used for business analysis on a global scale.


We can provide GfK map bases for a number of countries around the world, and have experience in using and formatting these, for use in different applications.


TomTom is the world's most trusted source of digital map data and dynamic content. For the UK, this vector data set is wholly configurable to user requirements in terms of colour, style and presentation. TomTom data is subject to frequent updates and new versions are released by Geoplan on an annual basis. Map bases for other countries available on request.
