  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I recently asked this forum for advice on obtaining local maps. I have always felt lacking in my preps in this category because I've only had state-wide maps and some very meh local maps in my inventory. After ordering pretty much everything that folks recommended, I wound up making my own...

    I want to make some local maps for both bug in and bug out scenarios. Does anyone have some guidelines around how much detail my maps should have and how much area they should cover? Specifically: - How much of a radius around my home do I need for a street map to cover? Does it need to show...

    Hello all, A good portion of my preparedness revolves around understanding how things work. What do I need to build or create x, and where do I get the tools and resources to do that? How do I get from an empty field to a pizza? How do I refine petroleum? How would I recreate modern...

    I was looking for advice and suggestions on what maps to have on-hand in a SHTF. Needing to know how to get from here to there, across town, across your county, or across a state. If GPS and the Internet are down, paper maps could be a lifesaver. Either in your home, your vehicle, or BOB...

    Back when Al Gore first invented the Internet I frequented two websites (topozone and terraserver) where I could view usgs topo maps. These websites no longer share maps, but offer them for purchase. If I were to purchase them, I'd purchase hard copies but that's a store 2 hrs away. Is...

    I started using Google maps today and wanted to see what others found. I have found what I think is the tunguska event's coordinates: 60.886N 101.894E if you zoom in and look to the west (left) you can see a large empty area in a small stretch of forest. I THINK this is the right area but could...

    Good afternoon, all! I came across a fantastic (free!) interactive map tool that I wanted to pass along to my brothers and sisters here in the forum. If you're looking for detailed USGS maps (think, wells, campgrounds, power poles, springs, topo lines, etc), look no further. Find the area you...

    Perhaps the most useful tool I have is a navigation kit. It weighs about 3 pounds, but worth every ounce. It contains a GEO Compass, a comprehensive list of DMS Waypoints (also known as GPS Waypoints) and a solar NAV instrument I designed that is accurate to within 2 Arc Minutes. It also...

    Not sure if you guys have stumbled across this, but I found a website called BridgeHunter.com that has high resolution county maps. They are in .png format; I'm downloading a ton of them to put in the emergency library I have on a USB drive, but also plan on printing a few of them out for...

    Saw this on the web today, looks like a great idea, for those of us that don't actually have meetup maps printed. :o: I'm going to print out a few sets. From Their website below: Safety Maps is a free online tool that helps you plan for this situation. You can use it to choose a safe meeting...

    http://www.mytopo.com/index.cfm This site allows you to get the maps you need. For those of you bugging out or buggin home this would be very valuable. I have a hour plus commute through the hills that seperate Montgomery county from the Lehigh Valley. If someting happened it would be nice...

    From the GPS poll thread, I began considering my lack of good maps. Where would one begin looking for good maps of their surrounding area, either free to download and print or cheap to order?
  17. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Did a quick forum search, didn't pull up anything especially good (but, please direct me to the thread if I missed it). Where can I find good maps of Florida? Good price, detailed, and of a good size for a backpack sized bug out bag. Should I just be checking Amazon?... thanks -Svt
  18. Reviews & Questions For Vendors
    Does any one have a good source for topograghical maps. GPS IS great, but if you loose power, or the sats go out, your SOL. A good area map and compass is a must have in the boonies. ____________________________________ Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way.

    In a SHTF situation I want to conserve my batteries as much as possible. I plan on having a GPS but I also want a back up in map form for if I am low on batteries or if GPS has crapped out too. What I need to know since I am going to download a PDF file of the road atlas of Canada and the USA...
