Project Description

A toolchain to produce customised maps for loading into a Garmin GPS for specialised uses. An example is provided for the CFS to use as a replacement/supplement to existing Emergency Services Map Book and Group Response Plans.

Data Story

8 OpenStreetMap is the core data providing the basemap (Worldwide) that allows routing, town names, address lookup and so on
* Relevant (public) data is incorporated into OpenStreetMap (or simply validated)
* Private data is mapped and saved locally
* A script is then run to download the wanted area from OpenStreetMap and transform it into the desired "look" using customised styling rules.
