Meridian Airmaps Limited was an aerial survey company based in Shoreham, UK, which undertook commercial aerial survey contracts from 1952 to 1989. Payment for survey work in one African country was so late in being settled that it created debts that made it impossible for the company to continue and it went into liquidation in 1989.
