Rural Maps has been creating maps for landowners and managers across the world since 2013.
Set up by Anthony Pelly to run alongside his farming business. His experience in farming and and rural project management led him to appreciate the fundamental importance of a good map in managing projects efficiently. Essential when briefing employees, consultants or contractors. Conversely, the lack of a map or a weak map can only give rise to confusion and risk. Many of our clients will have been relying on paper maps handed down through the generations, often out of date and inaccurate, before commissioning a map from us, sometimes just in time! A single accurate set of maps can save electric cables from being hit when carrying out excavations, can provide a record of future and past cropping plans and can help landowners calculate materials requirements - even down to the last fencing staple.
Although we work from a converted brick and flint barn perched up high on the South Downs in Hampshire, our approach is thoroughly modern thanks to super-fast broadband and cutting-edge technology. Using the latest GIS and Computer-aided Design (CAD) software, we prepare maps to a high degree of accuracy that are easily update-able so that they can keep up with any changes at ground-level.
Working with a wider team of graphic designers, map data specialists and illustrators, fine art printers and framers, our small team produces maps for landowners around the world. We enjoy a close relationship with our clients from start to finish of their mapping projects and we value their input into our ever-evolving product. Anthony’s farming experience and our clients’ feedback ensures that our graphics, level of detail, and print quality are absolutely industry-leading. In recent months we have delivered our largest decorative map yet to a client’s shoot in Florida and a map of a shooting property to Australia, both incorporating fine illustrations. Closer to home, we have provided functional maps for a range of properties, ranging from large agricultural multi-farm businesses to small farms.
We are proud to say that with 1,000,000 acres under our belt, we have never had a map returned or rejected.
Producing over 400,000ac of maps for farms, estates and ranches annually.
