ViewRanger has teamed up with Harvey Maps to make specialist walking maps for the UK’s most popular outdoor regions available on mobile devices.
Harvey Maps cover the UK’s most exciting terrain in a highly-detailed, easy-to-read format designed specifically for outdoor enthusiasts. The Perthshire-based company’s lightweight waterproof printed maps have achieved cult status among hillwalkers over the past 40 years, and their arrival on the ViewRanger platform makes them instantly available to millions of smartphone and smartwatch users worldwide.
The combination of ViewRanger’s GPS navigation and Harvey’s trusted mapping allows walkers to easily access all the tools they need to explore the UK’s hills and mountains with confidence. Harvey’s complete Superwalker and British Mountain Map series – totalling more than 50 maps – are both available to download now in the ViewRanger app. The maps can be used without phone signal, allowing walkers to see their precise location on detailed mapping in even the most remote locations.
Sue Harvey MBE, co-founder and director of Harvey Maps, said: “ViewRanger is one of the key suppliers of digital mapping to the outdoor market in the UK and internationally. I’m very pleased that Harvey original mapping is now available on the ViewRanger platform.”
Harvey Maps was founded in 1977 by Robin and Sue Harvey, with a vision to create maps that include all of the features hillwalkers need, and none that they don’t. Special attention is given to contours, which are spaced at 15-metre intervals, and bright colours help distinguish rocky ground, woodland, farmland and marshland. Specific features such as climbing crags, Munros and Wainwrights are also clearly identified.
Craig Wareham, ViewRanger co-founder and CEO, said: “Harvey is an iconic British brand that’s been producing unique and innovative maps covering the UK’s hills and mountains for four decades, and we’re delighted to welcome them to the ViewRanger app. We work alongside international mapping agencies in 23 countries to provide best-in-class maps for outdoor enthusiasts worldwide, and we’re excited to start sharing Harvey Maps with them.”
