Using our Mapping for Other Walks

Here at WalkLakes we have two obsessions: walking and mapping. So as well as finding you the best Lake District walks we also illustrate them using our our mapping, which we call WayMaps, and you see that used both in our walks and our GPS Mapping app.

We're not the only people using WayMaps. We provide the map tiles to other walking web sites like Walking Britain. Some people also create printed documents using our mapping and this week we were sent a copy of 'Nine Circular Walks from Great Glen'. It's a beautiful wire bound booklet which our photos don't really do justice.

Inside you can find details of walks about the village of Great Glen in Leicestershire and they have used our mapping to lay out the walks. Here's walk 8, Great Glen to Newtown Harcourt, for example.

It is a lovely booklet and it's available for free from the Parish Council office so do pick up a copy if you're ever in the area.

As it's a free publication we allowed the council use our mapping without charge and we're happy to do that for other organisations too so long as they ask permission and include the appropriate attribution wording, as the council did.
