International Mapping Launches Maritime Boundaries Website

December 10th, 2014

ELLICOTT CITY, MD (9 December 2014)—International Mapping offers public access to the most up-to-date and thoroughly researched maritime database in the world. The information in the database is available through a free interactive map and three types of premium products: Boundary Briefs, Map Posters, and GIS Data.

International Mapping’s Boundary Briefs contain an exact account of the cartographically operative language from bi-lateral agreements, arbitral awards or court judgments that define the maritime boundary. They include a large-scale map that prominently features the boundary and any specially defined maritime zones. Map Posters are beautifully crafted in full-color and show the established and potential maritime boundaries of a region or the world. GIS Data provides detailed coordinate data for international maritime boundaries and any specially designated areas for use in all common GIS software systems

When it comes to the delimitation of maritime boundaries, the only constant seems to be change. With hundreds of boundaries already settled and hundreds more still to come, attempting to stay abreast of the latest developments is a never-ending job. International Mapping is now committed to making this burdensome task much easier by offering its maritime database.

The maritime data from International Mapping is the only fully current and corrected source for maritime boundaries, containing corrections of errors found in other published and free sources. In addition to showcasing the boundaries, the database includes specially designated areas that form integral parts of maritime agreements. These special areas deal with a variety of topics such as fishing rights, joint development of seabed resources, enforcement of maritime laws and more.

Assisting sovereign States with their maritime boundary disputes is the core business of International Mapping and represents an area of expertise that has developed over many decades. The maritime database and its associated products are the culmination of thousands of hours of research, analysis, compilation and illustration.

The new Maritime Boundaries website has a simple goal: provide users with an accurate, concise and up-to-date snapshot of the world’s maritime areas. The new site is a comprehensive reference tool that will aid anyone who needs to stay current with international maritime affairs.

National Forest Foundation: Treasured Landscapes, Unforgettable Experiences

January 14th, 2014

The National Forest Foundation (NFF) hired International Mapping to develop site maps for the NFF’s Treasured Landscapes, Unforgettable Experiences conservation campaign. This nationwide campaign addresses integrated restoration challenges on 14 National Forests ranging from the glacial peaks of Alaska’s Tongass National Forest to the aquamarine springs of Florida’s Ocala National Forest. Each campaign site required an accurate and detailed map highlighting project boundaries and important geographical features. Additionally, each map needed to position the site in its respective state and National Forest.

International Mapping’s Treasured Landscapes site maps present this information in a clear and readable format, complimenting the NFF’s existing outreach and other materials. Downloadable PDFs of each map are available at the NFF’s web site, providing an important resource for interested parties to learn more about the campaign and each individual site. The maps help the NFF easily show project locations and boundaries to foundation and corporate supporters in a standard format.

Learn more about the Treasured Landscapes, Unforgettable Experience conservation campaign and view the maps at www.nationalforests.org/treasured.

“International Mapping’s Treasured Landscapes site maps provide the NFF with a great tool for connecting to potential supporters across the country. In additional to being aesthetically pleasing, the maps position each site within its respective state and National Forest, helping us connect potential supporters to these amazing places. We have found them to be a very useful tool for our outreach and fundraising efforts.”
