Mapping Specialists strives to be your partner for quality, cost-effective mapping services and products.

Mapping Specialists Team

From geographers and cartographers, to teachers, historians, artists and programmers, our team brings a wide range of knowledge and expertise to plot and fulfill your mapping projects. Our location in the Madison, Wisconsin area—a highly-regarded center for cartographic education—allows us to draw on a well-educated workforce and extensive resources for research.

Depending on your expertise, we can help you unfold the story you want to tell through your mapping project. We research the location or subject matter you’re working with and can suggest innovative ways to help the user understand your story.

Partnering with Mapping Specialists

Mapping Specialists operates on a work-for-hire basis, which gives you the greatest long-term flexibility and best value. You own the files we produce, so you can update them to accommodate thematic or geographic changes.

By working closely with you to achieve your project goals, Mapping Specialists effectively becomes part of your team. We can take your project from initial concept through the design process, and deliver everything you require to produce your final map product on time, within budget, and formatted for your needs.

From maps and graphs for textbooks to detailed spatial analysis to street guides and everything in between, we can meet all of your custom cartographic needs.
