Conditions of service and supply
Vector maps are offered in the Internet in huge and quickly
increasing numbers. But the prices are very high; reason for this is the
required working effort and the still very limited market. Prices form
more as 1000 € are normal, many maps are protected by watermarks,
limiting so the use outside of the terms defined by the owner. But in
the Internet are also in increasing numbers vector maps used, especially
in Wikipedia, using the SVG format. But these maps should be manually
modified; usually they are not prepared for the display of additional
The maps here offered were mostly produced for different projects; therefore
the price is significantly lower.
Manly there are 2 different possibilities for orders – the generation
of thematic maps, based on your own data, and the sale of the vector
graphics, so that you can work with the originals by yourself. The use
of the PDF-files is free of charge, maintaining the our reference.

the map, tailo-red in the following issues:
Size of the required graphic - for web, reports A4 or huger,
plotter (formats till A1 or others),
Resolution of the graphic,
Individual specifications - colour preferences and logotype
In the price of a map until are 4 different formats included. This
enables the client the use the graphic in different media.
Steps to go:

needs (Which country, display of own data, change requests on the
basic maps or inclusion of new geographic of technical information,
required file size – paper format – and graphic format)
We will send you the map in a huger size (Giving you the
possibility to include the new information requests, if necessary
marked with Paintbrush or other graphic program, confidentiality
needs) and an Excel table.

voucher is sufficient for known clients.
After the reception of the payment I will send you by e-mail the
map in pixel format in the specified size and format for you further
use – naturally without my watermark.

for modifications are not so expansive, you should have the protected
PDF usually in the next 2 till 5 working days. The next step depends on
your payment and the coordination of the same – send me the copy of the
payment voucher to speed up the process.
The processing time will increase according to your requests of
changes; in these cases the delivery schedule must be coordinated

correction of errors in the basis maps, this includes errors in
the mapping process and changes in the administrative structure of
the country, these changes are cost free.
The price for the required modifications and/or the mapping of
new information depends on the required time to produce it, and

50 € and 80 € plus taxes.The exact neto price is visible on the specific
country page. Regional or continental and the world map are possible for
85 till 100 €.

hour, usual for this kind of Home Office work.
huger orders can be agreed individually a discount –
if there are more as one new map to draw, etc.
Selling vector maps
The price definition is according to the work effort for the
generation of the map and therefore to coordinate with us individually.
