ViewRanger's Spring 2017 Top Publishers

Posted on 18/04/2017

America’s top hiking magazine, a trekking group from south-east Africa and a UK archaeology expert are among ten winners recognised at ViewRanger's Spring 2017 Top Publisher Awards.

The awards recognise excellence in digital route guide publishing; with the winners judged on the quality of their routes, creative use of ViewRanger’s digital publishing platform, and popularity with outdoor enthusiasts. Winners from four countries were announced at ViewRanger’s inaugural Top Publisher awards in 2016, with this latest selection providing an even greater global reach.

“We’re proud to be associated with so many outstanding outdoor publishers who use ViewRanger to create route guides in such unique and innovative ways,” said ViewRanger CEO Craig Wareham. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a huge global brand or an individual who shares routes in your local area – what matters is the quality and popularity of the route guides, and these ten publishers have all set the bar very high.”
