I’m sorry for the delay in releasing the latest podcast, however excuses are included in the podcast which include the weather and illness throughout the year.
However I am trying to get things back on track, and we kick off once again on a topic which is effecting our ever changing outdoors world and the way we research our forthcoming adventures.
I recently went to one of the very few shops in the UK which specialise in Maps, which just so happens to be local to me. The Map Shop in Upton Upon Severn, has been a thriving cartography business for some 30 years. However things are obviously changing for them as the media landscape is evolving. (Facebook page)
John Baker is one of the partners and he spends time with me explaining some of the services they offer and we discuss his customer base, who are looking for hard copy maps and their future.
Andy takes a different angle and takes two releases from Cicerone Press in both hard copy and eBook format, to see if and what any particular benefits might be using either system.
They all have their positives and negatives and it is interesting to see that each have a place depending on your own style or collating and gathering information before setting off.
