Frequently Asked Questions

Will the image quality be better than the preview I see on the website?

Yes! The images that we display on the website have to be significantly reduced so that they don’t take years to load! The original images that get sent for production are around 300-400 times larger! To get an idea of what the full optical quality of your map will be, look for the magnified preview.

Can I download the original image file for my map?

We currently do not provide the original image data for download. Two reasons:

  1. To get the ultra high level of detail covering large areas means these files are incredibly big. Even if we were able to send them to you, you would need specialist software and hardware to open them.
  2. This is our intellectual property and the thing that allows us to stay online and offer our unique art to all that find it as interesting as we do. If there is a special need for originals, contact us as we can see how we can help.
