Raster Background Mapping – Andes
Detailed street-level raster background maps with named street, towns, villages, industrial areas, urban sprawl, water courses, forests, beaches and urban green spaces. To provide appropriate levels of detail as you vary the level of zoom in your chosen package, there are 6 more rasters, each optimised to be viewed at a different scale (scales range from 1:6,000 to 1:5 million).
- Detailed map with clearly named streets
- Use at scales from 1:5,000 to 1:5 million (seven different rasters at a range of scales included)
- Town/settlement, POI (points of interest) and postcode gazetteers are provided and can be used for geocoding or navigating around the map
- Data fits perfectly with HERE map content vector data. Isochrones or routes, generated from HERE map content vector, will overlay perfectly on these Andes rasters.
- Consistent look and feel across the world, so uses European-style colouring i.e. motorways are orange.
- Raster map is supplied in Lambert Conformal Conic projection (Geodetic datum:WGS84)

Andes 1 Street raster 1:6,000 street-level maps with 6 other rasters (named streets)
Andes 2 Street raster 1:18,000 local area maps, with 5 other rasters (unnamed streets)
Andes 3 District raster 1:50,000 district area maps with 4 other rasters (detailed streets not shown)
Andes 4 Road raster 1:150,000 maps with 3 other rasters (road map – streets not included)
Andes 5 Road raster 1:500,000 maps with 2 other rasters (clearly displays region level data)
How is it used?
- Specifically designed for on screen viewing at a wide range of zooms
- As a background to vector-based analysis (e.g. beneath depot catchment boundaries, detailed line of route or drive time isochrones)
- To present results (e.g. behind shaded maps of sales performance or demographic characteristics)
- Location maps
- Ideal as a backdrop for territory, tracking, routing and optimisation applications
There are seven different rasters, each optimised to depict the relevant features at different scales.
There are also three separate gazetteers: cities, POIs (points of interest) and postcodes.
The most detailed raster (Andes 1) depicts named streets, towns, villages, industrial areas, urban sprawl, water courses, forests, beaches and urban green spaces.

Raster data consists of individual raster image files together with the geo-referencing world files, and project or workspace type files needed to ensure your data displays in your chosen GIS package. Gazetteers contain:
- Unique IDs
- Names of municipalities, cities or POIs
- Latitude and longitude co-ordinates for each point (plus easting and northing grid co-ordinates for UK maps).
