Free, sample 1:25K Macgillycuddys Reeks maps
[ Sorry, all samples now distributed ] The Ordnance Survey in the Republic has given us some sample copies of their new two-sided 1:25,000 map for Macgillycuddy's Reeks/ Killarney National Park. This is the start of what are to be known as the Adventure Series. We have previously made various suggestions to them about their map and have supplied them some of our data.

Their request is as follows:
As part of the pre-publication testing process we would appreciate if you could look at these from 2 perspectives:

The Paper Quality of the map.
The Fold of the map.

You will also receive copies of the Killarney National Park Map for comparison purposes. This product was produced on a different paper and is folded differently.

The Adventure Series map is not the finished product and is provided for Test Purposes only.

-- end of request --

Let us know if you want a copy of this map and would be willing to make comments. We are particularly interested in getting feedback from people actually using the map on the Reeks or East Dunkerrons or Mangerton area.
