We've been designing and publishing maps for a long, long time, from before smartphones and wireless and Google. Yet we embrace these technologies and can provide maps on all forms of media. From paper to digital to mobile, we do it all.

You might have already seen our work! We're the cartographic team behind JIMAPCO Maps, the nationally acclaimed publisher of award-winning street maps and atlases. If you've lived or traveled in the northeastern United States, you've probably seen our maps in convenience stores, markets, or bookstores. We've also created thousands and thousands of maps for various towns, counties, fire districts, chambers of commerce, visitor bureaus, school districts, organizations, events, and just about everything else that can be shown on a map.

We are:

Paul Hein, lead cartographer, map designer, and project coordinator. With over 40 years of mapmaking experience, Paul has been part of the transformation of cartography as it evolved from manual methods of map production to sophisticated digital creations. Using our state-of-the-art mapping tools and backed by years of good map design and craftsmanship, he can do just about anything when it comes to maps. Paul works from his home office and cartographic studio in Saratoga Springs, NY. The map art you see on our Map Art page is what Paul does in his free time. 

Elton Dise, map programmer and cartographer. Elton and Paul have worked together for the past 30+ years. Elton specializes in map coding and getting mobile and online maps to do the things we like. He also is a stickler for accuracy and consistency. Elton works from his home in Troy, NY, and enjoys biking, history, and urban landscapes.

Linda Hungerford, cartographer. Linda has worked with Paul and Elton for over 16 years, the past 14 remotely from her home in Portland, Oregon. Linda specializes in fine-tuning maps so they're easy to read and simple to understand. All those little details you see (and some you don't, by design) - Linda did those. When not working on maps, Linda's interests are hiking, wilderness photography, and raising chickens.

Sanjay Mohan, cartographer and GIS specialist. A retired Indian Army Colonel and civil engineer, Sanjay has 20 years experience in cartography, photogrammetry, and GIS, including ArcGIS, MapInfo, QGIS, and MAPublisher. Sanjay works remotely from his home in Bengaluru, India, where he also enjoys reading, watching movies, cooking Punjabi food, and exercising.

Chris Hein, sales and marketing manager. Chris, our newest team member, is our customer point-of-contact, so if you send us a request, Chris will be the one to get back to you, making sure we understand exactly what your mapping needs are so we can deliver the perfect solution for you! He keeps the office on track, and makes sure your map is delivered on schedule. In his spare time Chris enjoys hockey, music, and working out.


Our office is located in Saratoga Springs, NY, but we can create maps of anywhere on earth. Contact us for more information on how we can provide the perfect map for you.
