FourPoint Mapping were approached by local sustainability campaign group Transition Tavistock to create a town-wide walking-specific map for them. An A3 leaflet was recommended as the perfect format, meaning that at a scale of 1:9,500 every street can be named. Using the client's extensive local knowledge a great amount of detail was added and, keen to advocate the use of the traffic-free paths around the town, they wanted the map to enable users to clearly see which paths are surfaced, unsurfaced, are steep, or have steps.
A grid of numbered and lettered squares was included for referencing the street index, and which also allows prominent numbered sites to be quickly located. The street index itself features on the reverse of the leaflet, along with lots of useful information about getting around the town on foot.
The map also exists in a scrollable, zoomable PDF format on the client's website, and the street index can be downloaded in a large-print format.
