Andes’ maps are geographical map images with worldwide coverage.

Andes supplies a range of map products in a variety of map styles that are available in several common formats.

Raster data uses pixels to present an accurate representation of a geographical area on a flat surface. Certain map elements such as roads are displayed larger than in real life, to make them easier to see. Other map elements such as small bends in roads and rivers and small landscape features are deliberately omitted as a result of generalization. The way in which these objects are represented depends partly on the scale of the map, so you will find different information on a city map than on a road map.


Good vector data is essential for the production of raster data. In the Netherlands, Andes makes use of our own geographical database, kept up to date by our professional GeoInformation team, relying on our excellent contacts with local and national government, the use of current aerial photography and practical fieldwork. In other countries we base our standard raster data on HERE (formerly Navteq) vector data. Andes’ raster data is available at several scale levels, to allow zooming in and out. Our standard product is available at 6 levels: from level 1 at street level, with the highest level of detail (approximate scale 1:7000), to level 6 at country level (approximate scale 1:1.5 million). For larger areas within Europe we deliver up to level 8. Andes supplies the raster data in several standard map images for a range of applications; you can see a number of examples on this website. We can also produce customized data. For example, we can adapt colour schemes, add or remove map elements and change the scale level to suit your own requirements.
