Map Reviews

Our customers say the nicest things about our maps.

These map reviews are actual emails we have received about Global Graphics Maps!

As longtime users of Global Graphics maps, we give them the highest praise. We’ve never seen any other maps that so clearly provide such detail, down to the smallest streets, with such easy to read text (all caps–great idea!). Trying to get the “big picture” of a region on the internet is an exercise in frustration: either you see a small area in total detail or a larger area with little detail. Three cheers (make that ten cheers) for Global Graphics for providing the big picture with all the details we need to get oriented. Thank you! – Barbara S & Ron K

Hi! I have just come back from California — and your maps are far and away the best available.  I have bought multiple copies of some since I wear them out.  I wish you covered more places!  They are great — clear and comprehensive and appetizing to use.  Keep expanding! – Christopher Phillips (New York City)

Just wanted to let you know that I bought one of your laminated maps of NYC last week, an excellent in-use experience, the best map I have ever used! Resistant and so functional, you can fold in all positions, really really impressed! – Fred P.

Your map of Boston was one of the best maps on Boston that I found. I looked at many, before I left and while on the trip. It was easy to read, well marked, well laid out, on a good scale, metro and rapid transit lines clearly marked, and included everything I needed. I want to commend you on this excellent map. – Debbie M.

What really impressed me was that my son lives on this tiny street — about a block long, literally, but it was on the San Diego map — AND findable, thanks to the complete street guide on the back. That sold me. You folks do publish TERRIFIC maps! Thanks again, – Denise B. (Wisconsin, USA)

Visiting a city? Take a map!

I found your map far easier to read than others I had seen – e.g. yours showed us highway 41 as the most direct route from Yosemite to San Luis Obispo (part of our itinerary). I hadn’t considered this possibility until I studied your publication. I have just placed an order and will bear your maps in mind re: future vacations in the USA. – Mr. R. Tapp, UK

I received your maps and your wine country guidebook. They are fantastic and better than I had even imagined. Keep up the great work. Chob Davis

I like how you strive to be as accurate as possible and take pride in your work.  I’d like to buy 6 wine maps, 1 Route 66 map, and a San Diego guide book. Thanks for your time, – C. Davis

Hey Global Graphics! I recently moved to Silicon Valley and I must tell you that your map is INVALUABLE. Mine is so beat up already I need to buy another one. It’s the perfect map for this area. I love it! Yours is the best on the market! Great job! Cheers, – Kathy

Hey Guys! Looking for your New York City maps….love the one I have, but its in tatters….do you know any outlets here in Manhattan that sell your Quick Access maps? Thanks. (Now Peter can buy direct! -Ed.) – Peter

I have many of your maps as I travel extensively on behalf of my University. The maps are not only informative and accurate, but also beautiful to look at and touch. Many a time on an air trip a passenger has asked me where I obtained the maps. I typed in Global Graphics and located your website through the Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. – Christopher, Philadelphia

A lot of book publishers send me, John Clayton, brochures on all the (so they say) great guide books they have on travel. Well some are boring, most are even more boring, and a few are just top notch. Falling into that latter category is a selection of, I think, very clever guidebooks called “City in Your Pocket.” I’ve got the one about New York in front of me, and it’s really super. 54 pages long, it covers such things as places of interest, hotels, entertainment, shopping, and of course, many maps. And yes, it fits into your pocket. Other maps I like from the same company are a Road Map of the USA, and a really fascinating one called “California Wine Map” in your pocket. I love the section that explains what wines go with what meals, and how you can tell if a wine is great, or not. If you’d like more information on these clever, truly informative guidebooks and ‘in your pocket’ maps, I’d suggest you call the publisher. – John Clayton, KNX 10.70 NewsRadio Los Angeles

I love this map Los Angeles & Hollywood Street, but I’m afraid that it’s going to wear out. I’d love a laminated one that is exactly like the unlaminated one I have. – Rebka, Los Angeles

I’ve been using your San Francisco maps for some years now. I’ve probably bought a dozen of the same one because I keep giving ’em away to visiting friends ! I’d really like to see you guys in other areas! You’re way better than any of the other maps I’ve bought. Good luck to you, and let me know you’ve the Tampa area mapped. – Tom Gleason

You don’t want to get lost in wine country, do you? (wink wink)

A “must-have” map for the wine traveler. I love driving in wine country. If you travel in search of wine, like I do, you’re going to love the newly published California Wine Map. This isn’t just one of those slick brochures published by the local wine country tourist board. It’s a full-fledged, state-of-the-art, satellite-generated map of California made by a well-known cartography company called Global Graphics. This topographically accurate map pinpoints 1,044 wineries and vineyards in California. All major highways are clearly shown, too, making it easy to plan a trip to the winery or wineries of your choice. On the back is an index that lists addresses, phone numbers and also lets you know whether their winery is open to the public…and on which days of the week. – Anthony Dias Blue, KFWB Radio Los Angeles

A few months ago, someone wrote to me about the newly created “California Wine Map” and I reacted with a bit of a yawn. Such things are a dime a dozen, so it came as a surprise to me the map turned out to be one of the best inexpensive touring guides on the market. I took the map with me on a recent trip to Mendocino County and found it to be accurate, helpful and well worth its modest asking price of $6. Hundreds and hundreds of wineries are on the map, along with very valuable information about opening hours, tastings and tours. It would make a great stocking stuffer for any wine lover with a slight case of wanderlust. – Charles Olken, Food Section, Oakland Tribune

I think your Calif. Wine Map is the best thing since the repeal of Prohibition. It’s comprehensive, it’s well laid-out, the wineries are clearly marked, and it actually works as a practical road map as well. I’ll be recommending it to my wine country-visiting friends. And you can quote me. Keep up the good work! – Michael L. Kinney, Assoc. Publisher, Wine & Spirits Magazine

I got your map and its absolutely beautiful! I as a winemaker am absolutely thrilled and will be ordering quite a quantity for our wineries. But you did a great job! Loved the listing. Congratulations, it’s a beautiful map and well, really needed. The fact that it has all the wineries in California – its such a big bonus. – Gary Galleron/Galleron Wines-Napa
