IGN Maps

From the start we were adamant that decent quality maps were essential to the book. After some initial experimentation with dodgy 72dpi Google Maps it quickly became clear that we’d need to invest in some serious cartographic tools, so we partnered with L’Institut Geographique National and licensed their maps.

The overlays were done as we rode the trails, using Garmin, Apple & Xplova GPS devices. Then, we touched them up & edited them with some free but extremely powerful online GPS tools such as GoBreadcrumbs and GPSVisualizer.
