hikers, do any of ya download and copy maps to use in the field? Survival on purpose, on you tube has a good video on doing this, just wondering if there are other better ways now, his video has been out a while
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.
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...
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.
