We have been designing the world since 1949!
Global Map was founded in Florence in 1949 and was the first cartography company specialized in productions for third parties, particularly for public authorities.
Since the Sixties, besides the typical production for third parties, an innovative project was carried out: a company catalogue was created and distributed.
After half a century of activity it currently appears as one of the most exclusive and exhaustive catalogues among the national cartography productions.
Global Map makes different types of maps for various purposes and meets the needs of the entire nation as well as other relevant international areas. Furthermore Global Map is the only Italian private company - there are only a few in the world – that makes relief cartography.
A major information technology updating enabled Global Map to overcome the issue - which has generally been the most controversial and costly aspect of the last years for cartography companies – of migrating to digitalized production systems from the traditional ones.
Working methodologies – which are currently tested and functional – enable to yield high quality products as well as a high productive capacity and consequent low costs. Global Map owns its own sale network made up by both authorised dealers and agents working throughout Italy as well as Europe, Africa, Australia, Canada and United States.
More than a million people every year choose a Global Map map; hundreds of companies, public authorities, universities and publishers commit to Global Map the production of their work and receive a satisfying service – from planning to printing and final packaging - owing to the integrity of the productive.
