Caroline Robinson and her colleagues at the Clear Mapping Co. have been excellent in every respect. I cannot praise them highly enough. I set them an extremely complex project that demanded multi-dimensional solutions. It consisted of a series of maps based on an obscure area of northern Burma during the 1940s. It was essential that the maps were geographically and historically accurate and that they related to modern Myanmar. The Clear Mapping team was superb throughout. They were intelligent and meticulous quickly understanding, interpreting, and realising the brief. The task was completed on time and with a minimum of fuss. Dr Michael Leigh
