People's Map Underpins Edinburgh Festivals Guide

3rd September 2009 – Visitors to this year’s Edinburgh Festivals including the Fringe were able to locate the numerous venues for the thousands of events with a new map based on the People’s Map of Edinburgh. The map produced by the Festival Fringe Society was available stand alone at A3 sponsored by Becks and also bound into the Official Guide to the Fringe sponsored by Magners.

People’s Map enables map makers to create their own styles and colourways and then add data relevant to specific use, safe in the knowledge that the base map provides the vital geographic foundations. The large A3 map features colour coded locations for all the main Edinburgh Festivals’ venues including the International Festival, Art Festival, Fringe, Book Festival, Jazz & Blues Festival, Edinburgh Mela and the Military Tattoo. The map also contains information on Edinburgh’s wide variety of year round tourist attractions, bus and rail routes and much more. The smaller bound-in map provides information specific to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The People's Map is a web-based mapping project, which allows users to create their own mapping online by ‘drawing’ over Getmapping aerial photography. Users simply register and map everything from roads and land use through to points of interest, using the simple online editing tools. Map makers, graphic designers et al can order base maps for areas of the People’s Map which are complete and then apply their own styling, changing colours altering fonts and line weights to suit. They can also add data to produce a map which is completely customised for their own specific application.

The People’s Map also sports a growing range of derived mapping products. These can be delivered as hardcopy, from 1:10,000 through to 1:1,000,000 scales, and in electronic raster and vector file formats. It is also available as a web feed either through WMS or via the People’s Map Javascript API. Vector datasets consist of the following data layers: Admin Boundaries, including Postcodes, Buildings, Built Up Areas, Coastline, Contours, Drainage, Land use, Place name Gazetteer, Points of Interest, Roads and Railways. All these layers are available at all scales.
