20 years ago, online mapping was very much in its infancy… Google Maps didn't even come in to being until February 2005! So, who knew back then that our very first venture into sharing information via maps, MARIO – Maps And Related Information Online, would stand the test of time!

Twenty years later and MARIO is used not only in Lancashire, but the world over and we could never have imagined what an important source of information it would become… Did you know that there are 264,000 references to MARIO – Maps & Related Information Online on the web alone and we estimate that 5 million visits have viewed in access of 800 million maps of Lancashire in that time.

To celebrate this milestone, we'd like to know more about how you use MARIO and how it is has helped the community of Lancashire and beyond. We are looking ahead to what MARIO can provide in the coming years, embracing new technology to make it even easier to find information within our county.

What would you like to see on MARIO?

Help us to shape the future of MARIO by completing our short questionnaire. We'd love to hear your thoughts. The questionnaire will be available until 31 July 2021.
