Testimonials

London's Air Ambulance
London's Air Ambulance is proud to work in partnership with A-Z Maps. The maps have been a hugely important resource for our Operations team over our 25 year history and we are very grateful for the additional support we are now receiving from A-Z. This latest iteration of our partnership has developed into a valuable cause related marketing campaign enabling both our organisations to raise awareness of our iconic brands to the communities we serve in London.
London Ambulance Service
The A to Z Street layer is the preferred map layer used by our control room and emergency crews. Supplied in a digital format the maps are used […] to enable resources and incidents to be visualised against a map backdrop in real time. The same map layer is held on the Mobile Data Terminals (MDTs) inside each of the responding vehicles. The paper map books are used as the backup, and copies are held in the control rooms and also in each of the vehicles. Street map layer is favoured for its clear presentation, bold text and recognisable colours making main roads and features such as town centres, hospitals and train stations easy to spot at a glance.
Airbox Systems
Airbox Systems and our customers love A-Z mapping for its clarity and overall cartographic quality. Our customers use these maps in emergency services roles; The ability of users to glance at a map and instantly recognise it has a very high value in fast moving situations where safety is at stake.
Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council
The A-Z dataset is invaluable when referencing street data for engineering purposes, road classifications, traffic sensitivity, bridge locations and route planning. The choice is always A-Z map data because of its superior clarity, labelling and cartographic design making it perfect for presentation.
Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council
A-Z map data has provided a very good mapping backdrop to our GIS data. We utilise the mapping in our Intranet and desktop GIS. Users are particularly happy with the clear labelling in a format they are familiar with. The clear labelling enables users to quickly locate features we overlay on the map. We find it especially useful for creating plots for our map users where they need to quickly locate a feature, or see which roads are contained within an area. No other product we have found displays the roads as clearly as the mapping from A-Z does. It is a dataset that most of our staff request when asking for a map.
