BBC broadcasted SplashMaps 6 times on Wednesday!


BBC film of SplashMaps and our Backers.

We are so pleased that Alastair Fee, BBC business correspondant picked up SplashMaps and our Kickstarter. On the eve of the Outdoors Show the BBC broadcast our film 6 times at breakfast, noon, dinner and late slots.

My thanks to Andrew Sykes (@cyclingeurope) for posting this on You Tube whilst I was busy building the stand! The film was a great chance to express what our backers mean to us.  We’re building this thing together!

The (probably quite predictable) interest in our web site caused www.splashmaps.net to collapse for a few hours.  Our apologies to all those trying to find out more.  We are far more robust now!

The Outdoors Show goes on prompting some great tweets (https://twitter.com/splashmaps)!  An increadibly positive and exciting experience.

I would like to see how well the map is usable in the field especially when making compass bearings etc – it’s a little easier if the map is flat. I have a massive interest in maps and also run a walking club, so if there’s any way I can help then give me a nudge. I would’ve bought a map yesterday, but to be quite honest I am more interested in mountain areas such as Lakeland. I will be very interested to see the Lake District map when it’s produced later in the year. Please keep me up-to-date. Have you seen either of my two maps? Snowdonia is in the pipeline for April.
