Mapping 1,300 participating fuel stations across Ireland
CSC provide a fuel card service across Ireland for all sizes of businesses and were seeking a printed map to help card holders easily find the 1,300 participating fuel stations.
The client supplied a list of fuel stations and their addresses in Excel which were geocoded in the GIS environment for accurate placement on the map. A suitable base map was selected showing major routes, towns and counties. With such a large number of points, groups of symbols were cartographically tidied to help the user distinguish between sites. Each symbol is numbered and referred to in the listing.
As well as designing the initial map, Lovell Johns have managed the print and carried out updates and reprints as the participating stations have grown in number.
