Working with industry experts in a given outdoor pursuit, we assimilate their knowledge and expertise and combine it with GIS data to create maps unlike any other.
Our maps are designed by award-winning, expert cartographers, rich in detail and beautifully executed. What makes Map the Xperience unique is our locally gathered information. As avid outdoors people ourselves, we understand the small details that make each experience more enjoyable.
OUR MAPS ARE DIGITAL MASTERPIECES, VISUALLY APPEALING AND LOADED WITH INFORMATION FOR THOSE WHO LIKE TO EXPLORE NATURE’S WONDERS.
All our digital maps are compatible with the PDF Maps app. Once our maps are loaded on your device, your location will be tracked on the map. Wifi is not needed which makes it ideal for remote, off-the-grid use.
We also offer a selection of our beautiful maps printed on the world’s finest microfiber cloth bandana and cleaning cloth as a handy souvenir of your Xperience.
We work with federal and state governmental agencies along with various outdoor recreation related businesses, groups and nonprofits.
Our specialty is creating highly detailed, informative, GPS accurate and scalable outdoor recreation maps for fishing, hunting, hiking, mountain biking, rafting, and other outdoor pursuits.
In creating maps we strive for perfection and work in tandem with our clients to develop the best, most informative and visually appealing maps.
Whether it be a map of a river, hiking trail system, waterway, or park, our goal is to develop an end product that our clients will love, but more importantly, that the end users will find both informative and one they will download and interact with forever on their smart phones and tablets.
