Like all the best ideas, SplashMaps was born of frustration. Failing GPS devices and trying to use wet paper maps outdoors are not great user experiences. With SplashMaps we’ve taken our knowledge of mapping, gained from years of experience with mapping agencies, added open map data from Ordnance Survey and OpenStreetMap to make a product that is entirely designed around you.
A SplashMap shows the places you value the most, with the essential navigation information clearly displayed on an uncluttered map, printed onto a material you just can’t wreck!
Early in the development of SplashMaps we were convinced this was a great idea and one that would resonate with the public. So we put our theory to the test by looking to raise our initial funding on Kickstarter, the crowd funding site for new business ideas, becoming one of the first projects to do this in the United Kingdom. The project was a massive success and we easily exceeded the funding target we needed to get off the ground. Ever since then, people’s expectations for SplashMaps remain just as high.
We started trading in 2013. Using our Kickstarter funding we were able to secure a stand at the Outdoors Show at London’s Excel, which started us on our road to success. Media coverage from TV, print and radio followed our success and, despite only having 2 maps to produce at the time, SplashMaps became the “new kid on the block” in the mapping sector, producing something quite unique.
We’re now an award winning sports mapping brand having created over 50 top destination maps covering each of the 14 national parks, 7 of the National Trails and many outdoor adventure destinations throughout the UK and central Europe. Now with our Make-a-Map service YOU can map anywhere in the world onto fabric!
