East View Provides Remote Maps to Record Seeking Trekkers

MINNEAPOLIS - October 27, 2016 - Two former Royal Marines are seeking to make history this fall, and East View Geospatial is going to help them get there.
 
Brits Anthony Lambert and Louis Nethercott are seeking to become the first humans to travel across the five largest islands on the planet. Starting this November, Lambert and Nethercott will visit Greenland, Papua New Guinea, Borneo, Madagascar and Canada's Baffin Island. Dubbed  Expedition 5, the duo will be traveling more than 5,000 kilometers, and encountering various conditions and wildlife along the way.
 
While others have visited these islands,although perhaps not consecutively, what makes Lambert and Nethercott's quest unique is that they will be doing so unsupported; using nothing but their bodies and supplies.
 
Traveling unsupported means no cell phones, making it difficult to prepare for and navigate the remote and seldom recorded terrain, which varies from dense jungle to vast mountain ranges. To combat this, East View Geospatial has provided Lambert and Nethercott with maps for all five islands to ensure their safety and keep them en route.
 
"In searching for topographical data for our endeavor we hit several brick walls. Due to the extremely remote nature of some of these islands, coupled with lack of governmental geospatial organizations, we were left thinking mapping for some of the areas we were set to cover simply did not exist," Lambert said. "When I stumbled across East View Geospatial I could not believe my eyes. Their vast database of cartographic materials was instrumental in our planning and hopefully in the overall success of Expedition 5."
 
"During my 10 years spent in the military, in various overseas deployments, I never came across mapping made with the same quality as the Tyvex topographical maps provided to us by East View Geospatial," Nethercott said.
 
Throughout the adventure, Lambert and Nethercott will be updating their live position via an Expedition 5 website map. You can also track their progress through the East View Geospatial  Facebook and  Twitter pages, which will be posting relevant updates.
 
In addition to setting a world record, the Expedition 5 team hopes to raise money for the  Royal Marines Charity to provide a better quality of life to serving and retired Royal Marines and their families.
