The Map Consultancy brings a specialist’s approach to cartographic messaging.

What we do

Good maps are tough, and good maps are essential. We quickly deliver maps and charts that tell your story.


Evan Applegate is an award-winning cartographer and information designer with ten years’ experience in persuasive maps. He has made print, web and event graphics for national media and S&P 500 companies. He received an M.S. in Cartography & GIS from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and maintains a flexible team of geospatial designers and developers to scale to any project.


“Evan is much more than a mapmaker—he is one of the most clever and self-motivated graphics editors I have had the pleasure of working with. A good data visualizer can handle the what, where and when questions, but Evan is gifted with the the why questions, which are often much more interesting.”

Jennifer Daniel

Design Manager, Expression Design Team, Google

“Evan is an exceptional designer capable of simplifying complex data and presenting it in easily-understood graphics. He has been an invaluable collaborator to better the graphics we create at Businessweek.”
