ViewRanger expands mapping portfolio

The Netherlands: ViewRanger, the GPS mapping and navigation app, signed an agreement with Kadaster, the National Mapping Authority in the Netherlands. ViewRanger now offers premium topographic mapping for 19 countries around the world, alongside global open-sourced maps, through its app for Apple, Android, Symbian, and Blackberry Playbook mobile devices.

The deal with Kadaster brings detailed topographic maps at 1:50,000 and 1:25,000 scale – perfect for a wide range of outdoor leisure activities. The Netherlands has 20 national parks and hundreds of other nature reserves, and the popularity of sports such as cycling and skating makes the ViewRanger app an ideal companion for any outdoor enthusiast whether resident or a visitor to the Netherlands.

ViewRanger CEO Craig Wareham said, “With our app being downloaded and used globally, we are working hard to deliver the best map and navigation experience to outdoor recreation enthusiasts worldwide. ViewRanger offers the best detailed terrain mapping in an ever growing range of countries – and this update for the Netherlands is part of our continuing commitment to source the best maps from the best map publishers.”
