We have gone to great lengths to protect our maps without impacting on their appearance. We do this by incorporating hidden patterns of objects within the maps by aligning a number of certain vectors in a unique pattern. Even if the paths are simplified, text is modified or the map is scaled or skewed, the relationship between the vectors still remains. We pursue all copyright infringements on behalf of our clients and ourselves.
