Map the Xperience

OUR MAPS ARE DIGITAL MASTERPIECES, VISUALLY APPEALING AND LOADED WITH INFORMATION FOR THOSE WHO LIKE TO EXPLORE NATURE’S WONDERS.

Map the Xperience is an innovative digital cartographic and GIS company specializing in creating superb and highly detailed maps for the outdoor industry including fishing, hunting, backpacking, mountaineering, kayaking, rafting, running, and mountain biking. Working with industry experts in a given outdoor pursuit, we assimilate their knowledge and expertise and combine it with GIS data to create maps unlike any other.

Our maps are designed by award-winning, expert cartographers, rich in detail and beautifully executed. What makes Map the Xperience unique is our locally gathered information. As avid outdoors people ourselves, we understand the small details that make each experience more enjoyable. So in our maps we include launching areas, restroom facilities, number of parking spaces, mile markers and electric power line crossings to name a few.

All our digital maps are compatible with the PDF Maps app. Once our maps are loaded on your device, your location will be tracked on the map. Wifi is not needed which makes it ideal for remote, off-the-grid use.

We also offer a selection of our beautiful maps printed on the world’s finest microfiber cloth bandana and cleaning cloth as a handy souvenir of your Xperience.

We are constantly adding new adventures to our inventory so stay tuned!
