3D cycle maps

Everyone knows that cycling uphill is hard work. It is therefore the job of a cycle map to inform the cyclist where these hills are, and consequently we encourage the use of contour information on our maps, especially in the more hilly areas of the country.

The most common use of contours on our maps are to use a colour gradient so that as you go higher, the colour of the background gets darker. This is a common technique on cycle maps and has been used extensively by us from Plymouth to Preston.

However wouldn’t it be great to visualise the hills in three dimensions so that the hills, valleys and mountain ranges come to life. This is now possible and we think it looks really good. Take a look at this and let us know what you think.
