Our Customers Say:

“theMapCloud underpins a significant element of the future for LDL map collections. The implementation of Non-Print Legal Deposit will allow the LDLs to provide access to a growing body of map content published in the UK. The excitement of the project will only continue in coming years as we reach out to more customers and grow the scope of the resource, a significant undertaking that the scalability of theMapCloud makes possible.”
