La Tene Maps has been researching its maps for 15 years and has built up a considerable database in its core areas of activity. It has built up a huge range of contacts over the years. One of its main philosophies is "knowing the information is not important but knowing where to get it is".
Our major areas of expertise would be Aquaculture , Fisheries , Oil and Gas Exploration , Power Generation , Marine Boundary Disputes, European Marine Research Facilities and generally Europe as a geographic area. We would be glad to quote on any job in these areas. If what you want researched is outside of these areas please get in touch with us and we will tell you immediately if it lies within our capabilities.
We publish a range of maps, posters, directories, and other documents for ourselves and client companies. The company has over 15 years experience in the design, typesetting, layout and printing of publications including corporate brochures, reports, annual reports, posters and maps. A concept to final printed product service is available. La Tene Map Services has a complete suite of desktop publishing and ancilliary software and can handle any job in-house up to colour proof stage. We only print full colour in-house up to A3 size and these colour prints are usually used for colour proofs, short colour print runs for reports, or for security jobs. For lithographic printing we use one of a range of top quality printing companies depending on the size and type of job required.
The company offers a complete service from research through to printed product. The company specialises in special subject maps. We have a digital database of the world at 1: 1,000,000 scale. We can produce a thematic map of anywhere in the world subject to us having the data for the completion of the map project. We specialise however in Industry orientated maps and those on marine, environment or natural resource subjects in particular. Map products can be supplied in traditional printed formats, or supplied on film, or digital format for the client to print. Digital formats are also available for computer or web use.
Apart from straight forward cartographic production we are able to offer clients customised versions of some of the maps which we produce. These can range from adding a customers logo and company details to a map to having regular updated maps sent to the client on a regular basis. Eg: oil and gas concession maps. Whatever number and size of print the client wants can be handled by the company.
GIS - Services
Whilst the company is not specifically a GIS (Geographic Information Systems) house, we do have an in-house GIS capability. La Tene use ArcView for its projects and specialises in taking GIS files and turning them into high end cartographic solutions which can be printed or converted into other electronic formats for ease of use on computer systems or websites.
We specialise in producing or converting maps, images, graphics or documents for use on the web or for downloading from the web. This usually involves production and conversion to jpeg, gif and/or pdf formats. We donít construct websites ourselves. We work in tandem with a number of specialist companies to design and produce webpages and websites.
The production of posters has been one of the mainstays of the company's work. The company specialises in the production of educational/awareness posters.
