About our maps

Welcome to Maproom!

We sell accurate, editable map bases for websites, brochures, books, magazines and apps. Our royalty-free terms allow you to use a map for commercial purposes without any limit on print run or page views.

Our maps are supplied in “vector” formats, meaning they have live paths and anchor points allowing you to edit the shape, colour and size of all elements on the map. You can scale your map up or down according to your needs while the image stays sharp. See How to Customise.

Even if you have never made a map before, you can easily tailor any Maproom map to your own requirements. And for professional cartographers and designers they make a brilliant starting point for advanced customisation, saving days of work.

Maproom also offers interactive, animated maps, which can be built to your specifications and embedded on your website or app.
