Connecting cities is part of our history
Mission & vision
T-Kartor City Wayfinding applies 30 years of cartographic and GIS experience to the modern challenge of helping people navigate cities in a sustainable way. We believe that cartographic information, served at the optimal time, position and via multiple channels, has the power to influence behaviour towards sustainable, healthy options.
Our city wayfinding systems, including Legible London, Walk NYC and Toronto TO360, are based on a robust GIS platform to provide growth, value, system management and effective maintenance.
A background in public transport information
Launched in southern Sweden in 1985, T-Kartor has provided public transport information for Transport for London since 2000. We have innovated in this field with automated bus maps, vicinity maps and destination tables for UK public transport executives (PTEs) including Birmingham, Sheffield and Leeds, then internationally including Dublin and Paris.
The Legible London wayfinding basemap marked a new era for us in 2009 when our data-driven methodology was required to produce a mapping system for the whole of Greater London to serve the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Our mix of cartographers, designers, GIS experts and programmers proved ideal to develop city wayfinding systems which combine design, cartography, data management, effective production and rigorous maintenance. We develop wayfinding systems for large cities (London, New York and Toronto) and small (Stockholm and Cleveland), often opening an office close to our customer to ensure a high level of service in the long term.
As innovators we respond to a rapidly evolving market by offering the latest interactive digital information while capturing the value of open data to provide mapping suited to a smaller budget.
