RHS Garden Hyde Hall Map

Featured Map - RHS Garden Hyde Hall

An illustrative plan of a garden open to the public, RHS Garden Hyde Hall. Initially produced for inclusion in a guidebook, this plan highlights the main areas of the garden as well as showing the location of the main facilities accessible to the public.

This map has subsequently been used for signage on site as well as in other written publications relating to the garden.


Merritt Cartographic produces digital, graphically rich maps for the purposes of illustration, education and the display of thematic information.

Merritt Cartographic creates maps for the younger reader. Employing bright and colourful designs, these maps are tailored to suit the needs of children as they learn about the world.

Interactive Maps

Merritt Cartographic designs interactive maps for deployment on websites and in applications. Using custom styles and dynamic features, we create maps that visualise your information.

Bible Maps

Featured Maps - The Illustrated Bible

Four maps in a much larger series produced for a comprehensive reference book, published by Dorling Kindersley, exploring the Bible, its stories and influence upon the world.

The brief for these maps included a need to emphasise the amount of time which has passed between the present day and the stories being mapped. As such, a slightly weathered appearance has been employed with the effects of digital art brushes prominent in the design.

Further information regarding 'The Illustrated Bible' can be found here.

A subtle colour scheme has been used for the background elements of this map, allowing the cycling routes to be more easily identified. This map, as like all the others produced for this project, incorporates data derived from the OpenStreetMap project.

Hello, my name is Ed Merritt. I am a cartographer based in Southampton (UK). I established Merritt Cartographic in 2006.

I am a graduate of Oxford Brookes University, receiving an honours degree in Mapping and Cartography. Having worked in the past for a large publishing company in central London, much of my current work is commissioned for inclusion in reference books. I also produce interactive maps for deployment on websites and in applications as well as products for use on public display panels and signposts. As a freelance cartographer, I have produced custom maps and graphics for a wide range of publishers, charities and media organisations. My work has been included in products published by Dorling Kindersley, Millennium House, National Geographic, Pearson Longman, Royal Horticultural Society, Taschen and Weldon Owen.

I enjoy being creative in my work and like to explore new approaches. As a map-maker, I have a natural tendency to pay attention to detail and also to work hard to ensure that I am being as accurate as I can in the work that I produce.

For more information on how Merritt Cartographic can best assist you with your project, please send me a message or make contact via the information displayed above and throughout the site. I look forward to hearing from you.
