Mapyx Limited publisher of the digital mapping software “Quo”- digital mapping software for Ordnance Survey Ireland outdoor enthusiasts, recently announced that it has released the digital maps, making them the first digital mapping provider joining OSi Ireland and OS Great Britain maps into the same products.
This is another ‘first’ for Mapyx whose software was awarded “Best Buy” by Computer Shopper and has received rave reviews in computer and outdoors magazines.
Mapyx has gained a reputation for being responsive to its users and developing user friendly solutions for the outdoor communities. The release of digital maps for Ireland is a direct response from its users to cover greater geographical areas. The software is notable in that it is free to download at http://www.mapyx.com and you only pay for the maps that you require.
Steven Wood, a director of Mapyx, stated “We are exceptionally pleased to be able to offer maps of Ireland and to Partner with Ordnance Survey Ireland. This is an exciting opportunity for both organisations and especially the outdoor community who desire digital mapping. We are justifiably proud of working with Ordnance Survey Ireland and to provide digital maps of Ireland for leisure use.”
The software ‘Quo’ permits the storing and displaying of digital map data on a computer or handheld device to aid route planning, navigation, route downloads to GPS or paper and storing all key data such as tracks, photos, videos and notes. Quo is used by walkers, cyclists, runners and many other outdoors enthusiasts.
Mapyx Quo has just released their range of 1:25000 digital maps of Northern Ireland. The series include the Glens of Antrim, Mourne Mountains, Sperrins, Strangford Lough and Lough Erne.
Walking and Hiking Ireland have had a look at MapyX (using the Mournes 1:25000 map) and the initial feedback is very positive. The software is easy to use and offers a high level of functionality for the Outdoor Enthuaist. Routes and waypoints can be plotted and subsequently downloaded in a variety of GPS-friendly formats. Another useful feature is the ability to ‘profile’ and compare different routes. Stayed tuned to the website for a full review of Quo in the near future.
