Project Name

Rural Fire Service - Fire Trail Mapping

the aim

The Rural Fire Service (RFS) required cartographic quality maps of fire trails to be used by its outdoor staff and volunteers. The maps needed to:

  • Be durable
  • Be easy to use
  • Be of high cartographic quality
  • Display fire trail location, classification and capacity
  • Display aerial photography and contours

the solution

A3 laminated booklets were produced using:
  • Microsoft .NET
  • Adobe InDesign
  • Digital printing

The booklets include:
  • A sheet key
  • An index of all fire trails with map references

Fire trail data supplied by the RFS was themed and labelled. The data was then split into map sheets to ensure good scale and coverage. Cartographic maps where then created and prepared for printing by a digital printing service.
