Client Objective

To provide an innovative map for tourist.

Production Comment

A testing project, usually the main reference for 3D maps is oblique aerial photography. However, this was a flight exclusion zone and all we had was one photograph taken at a distance from over the sea. Once we had constructed the draft map in 2D we sent one of our cartographers over to Galata for a week. He then walked every street photographing each and every building from ground level and referencing them to the map. Surprisingly there was not a single correction except for missing language accents from four street names.

Usage

Standard printed map

Testimonial

Supplied through third party organisation but we understand the client to be very pleased and we did receive a printed map which was printed by the Turkish Government.
