Mountain Rescue England and Wales Appoints Mapyx Limited to be its Official GIS & Digital Mapping Partner


Surbiton, Mapyx Limited is Pleased to Announce That as of 1 March 2010, it Entered Into an Agreement With Mountain Rescue England & Wales (MREW) to be: Official GIS and Mapping Partner of Mountain Rescue England & Wales

Mapyx is justifiably proud to be associated with this important charity whose members are highly committed to delivering premier search and rescue services.

Mark Lewis, the Communications Officer for MREW, stated “Digital mapping has been a project we’ve been investigating for some time and the wait has certainly paid off in choosing Mapyx as a partner to supply a solution to our specification at no cost. Since our first meeting with Mapyx I have never looked back.

Every recognised team and member of Mountain Rescue England & Wales will benefit from the Quo package receiving a free copy with associated maps.

This is a great achievement for MREW to enable a common GIS platform to be available across England & Wales - and without teams having to spend any of their limited funds.”

Mark Salter, Head of Partners and Alliances said, “Ordnance Survey is pleased to congratulate Mapyx Limited in its achievement of becoming Official GIS and Digital Mapping Partner of Mountain Rescue England and Wales. This is a great accolade to Mapyx Limited who’s software Quo is a superb digital mapping solution, a fact clearly acknowledged by MREW. Ordnance Survey recognises the outstanding work of MREW and our topographic maps will continue to assist them in their important life saving work.”

Chairman of Mapyx, Steven Wood, stated “All of us at Mapyx feel privileged to offer our support, products and services to MREW. We fully recognise the valuable contribution that MREW provides to both the public and other services. They not only save countless lives but also offer valuable support to other organisations in times of emergency. We are honoured that MREW asked for our assistance and Mapyx look forward to supporting them immediately and in the future.

MREW is a charity and not only needs support and funding from the public at large, but also needs improved technological capability, which Mapyx is pleased to deliver. Our first step will be to ensure MREW has full digital mapping capability for the whole of England & Wales and then Mapyx will provide MREW with better search and rescue technology, which is currently under development.”

Mapyx Quo is 100% FREE fully-functional digital mapping software that has won numerous awards and is the optimum choice for those who operate in an outdoor environment whether for personal or commercial use and of course, chosen by MREW, the experts in saving lives.
