Map Wins British Cartographic Society Award

A map of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has been named joint-winner of the British Cartographic Society's Ordnance Survey MasterMap 'Better Mapping' award eGov Monitor reported today. The map was commissioned by Kensington and Chelsea Council for its interactive travel information website.

The "map" is actually more of a website that allows the users to make their own maps, choosing from a wide range of features to be depicted. The map was created for the Council by Oxford Cartographers Ltd. It was based on Ordnance Survey MasterMap and Ordnance Survey OSCAR road network. The judges praised the map for its clarity and user-friendliness as well as being "aesthetically pleasing."
