Nordpil, founded in 2008, is a Swedish-registered geographic services consultancy specializing in custom map design, including cartography, geographic information systems (GIS) and the visual communication of scientific information and data through illustrations, charts and diagrams.
It is a constant challenge to explain complex scientific and environmental issues, especially when illustrating relationships of space and time. Creating graphics that break through the noise and communicate the issues easily to viewers is difficult, even though our tools are very powerful. At Nordpil, we specialize in providing clear, powerful and attractive maps, charts and other graphics for print and the web. To help communicators, scientists and analysts improve their visual communication skills, we offer education and training packages.
We have prepared geographic data and visual material that has been published in National Geographic, Nature and major newspapers. Reports from the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), World Resources Institute (WRI), the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) and others have featured graphics prepared by Hugo Ahlenius, who also acted as graphics editor on some of these flagship reports. See the portfolio pages for examples. The illustrations address themes such as climate change, sustainable development, economics, poverty, the environment and many more.
