How can I link directly to a map from my website?

If you wish to link to one of our maps from your own website, and do not mind there being adverts shown with the map, then you may do so at no cost. Please refer on our help page How To Link to Us for more information.

If you would like to include our maps on your website, but do not wish to have adverts displayed, then you can take advantage of our Embedded Mapping service. We also provide various other Business Services that may suit your needs.

If you only require a single map, then we can provide an image for you to display on your website. There are a number of choices that you have:

Maps that are higher quality than those used on our public website.

Bartholomews Street map (Greater London)
Bartholomews Road Maps

Maps that are of the same quality as our public website.

Ordnance Survery Road Maps (1:50,000)
Internet Street Map (Whole of UK)

Aerial Photograph Maps.

Aerial Photographs

It is not acceptable to copy an image from our site and host it on your own website, or print more than one copy without permission since this violates copyright laws. For more information, please read our Disclaimer.

Can you produce paper maps for me?

Streetmap do not currently provide a paper printing service. However, we are able to generate high-quality custom maps for you in professional printing formats.

How can I purchase a map from you?

Step 1:

Use the website to find the map you wish to select. If you wish the map to be centred on a place other than the point shown, simply click your mouse in the place you wish it to be centred.

Step 2:

Select the scale that you wish, by using the zoom function.

Step 3:

Note down the Postcode, Streetname and Grid Reference of the map. The grid reference is particularly important if you chose to centre the map in a specific place.

Step 4:

Click on the "Buy This Map" icon below the map. This will bring up a new page which will give information on how to buy the map, costs, and any licensing issues.

The process is slightly different depending on the type of map you wish. Please follow the process outlined above, or for more information, choose one from the following:-

Maps that are higher quality than those used on our public website.

Do you cover Northern Ireland?

Unfortunately the data providers we have do not cover Northern Ireland, only mainland Britain. Whilst it is possible to gain the additional coverage, the demand does not make this financially feasible. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

May I draw my own version of your maps by hand?

You may not plagiarise any of our maps as this is still a breach of copyright. However, if you wish to walk along the streets and draw your own map, or obtain your own aerial photographs and draw them from there, that is fine.

I represent a non-profit organisation. Am I able to obtain a map for free?

Unfortunately, we still need to pay licensing costs on copyrighted material even if our clients are non-profit organisations such as charities.Therefore, we are not able to provide our services free of charge.

I wish to make a journey. Is there, or will there be any routing facility on your website to tell me how to get from A to B?

At the current moment, we do not have any plans to provide a routing service on the public website. However, this service is available through our Business Services.

Do you have a similar website, but for European locations?

We do not have such a facility currently, however we are planning to provide this in the near future.
