Portfolio: City Maps • Street Maps • Community Maps • Chamber Maps
Eureka has produced
thousands of street-level and arterial-level city maps for map
publishers, guidebook publishers, Chambers of Commerce, Covention and
Visitors Bureaus, magazines, websites, telephone directories and
authors. Some are tiny locator maps of a section of a city, others are
as large as a wall. We can handle your
whole job, the map, the layout and the printing. We can help you determine the right size and manufacturing option for your project. Your map can be a folded sheet map, a wall map, a tear-off pad map, we can get it printed on a dry erase board, mounted on foam core, framed, or as a large banner, it's up to you. We can broker the printing or manufacturing for you or provide files to a printer of your choice. We are flexible and cooperative in working with your designers and
printers, or we can do it all ourselves.
To price a city map we consider city size, coverage area, design, content, final size and output. Other than city size, content (level of detail) may be the most important factor in determining price. City map content may include points of interest, parks, schools, zip codes, block numbers, neighborhood names, community names, airports, shopping areas, restaurants and museums. City maps may include all streets if the final scale of the map permits or only the major streets (called arterials) if a broader area is to be mapped in a small space. Mapping all the streets is important for use while driving in residential areas. Major streets are fine for finding most businesses or for general metro or regional mapping needs.

With the advent of Web based and GPS way-finding people are more dependant on maps than ever before. No longer does word of mouth suffice to get kids to the soccer field, not only an address but a satellite image and lat/long coordinates are standard. Maps have become more important than ever as the number of daily map users has skyrocketed. As an advertising tool the city map remains invaluable, especially to smaller communities. So while we may find our way online, we find our place with something we can hold and behold. The retail street mapping industry may be down, but the ad-based and Chamber map market is on the rise!
