Leicestershire, 22 June 2016 – Cartography.co.uk is using the latest aerial photography from Bluesky to produce bespoke maps of rural farms and estates. The largest producer of customised mapping for private landowners in the UK, Cartography.co.uk’s map products are used for a variety of applications, including a growing concern for rural safety. The detailed maps are increasingly being produced for landowners who are concerned about employees working in remote locations in the event of an accident or other incident requiring support from the emergency services.

“In addition to the more traditional uses of our maps, there is a growing requirement from landowners to be able to share important navigational information with third parties,” commented Anthony Pelly, Managing Director of Rural Design Studio, trading as Cartography.co.uk. “For example, if there was an accident, being able to guide the emergency services to the exact spot could be critical. Distilling local knowledge on locations and how to access locked gates, dirt tracks and paths can potentially save minutes and – in some cases – lives, and this information is just not available from off-the-shelf maps.”

Using up to date accurate aerial images purchased from Bluesky’s online Mapshop, Cartography.co.uk uses the latest GIS and CAD software to produce the maps, which can range in size from small water- and tear-proof folded pocket maps to large decorative wall hangings. Working with farms, large country estates, vineyards and orchards, fishing clubs and hunting properties, the maps provide a comprehensive overview of the landscape and operations within.

“For rural areas, especially those that are privately owned, aerial photography is often the only accurate and definitive source of information for map making,” continued Pelly. “Having used a variety of different websites in the past, we have found the Bluesky Mapshop offers the most up to date and accurate coverage for current map projects and the broadest selection, in terms of different ages, for historical mapping or change analysis.

“We find the service from Bluesky to be first class; we can specify the exact area we require – whatever the shape, the data is delivered within minutes and we receive a single monthly invoice which reduces administration.”

The raw data used to create many of Cartography.co.uk’s maps is purchased from Bluesky’s online Mapshop (www.blueskymapshop.com), which offers complete nationwide coverage of aerial photography from multiple epochs, 3D models (Digital Terrain and Surface Models DTM / DSM), LiDAR data, Thermal Mapping and Bluesky’s National Tree Map. Visitors can also download – free of charge – geological, land cover and flood maps, as well as places of interest, census areas and collections of themed data such as farming, marine and habitats.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
