The Company was founded in 1977. Founders of the Company were Robin Harvey and Susan Harvey, who remain its Directors to this day. From the beginning, HARVEY specialised in making maps for outdoor recreation, principally walking, cycling, orienteering. Harvey maps have always been based on original mapping derived from new surveys from air photography.
In 1977 the company produced the map for the Karrimor International Mountain Marathon. This map was the beginning of what is now an extensive series.
HARVEY maps have been reproduced under licence in numerous publications. HARVEY has a joint map series with the British Mountaineering Council.
The company has a staff of 8 and has been based in Doune, Perthshire for the last 28 years.
