Great Site for Topo Maps

Recommended Posts

In the past I have purchased topo maps or DeLormes to explore an area for roads and access to fishing opportunities.


Now National Geographic has put up a site where you can get free USGS Quad maps for any location in the country in printable PDF format. It is easy to use. The PDF for each Quad includes 5 pages, Here is their description of what you get.

Page 1 is an overview map showing the Quad in context.

Pages 2 through 5 are the standard USGS Quads cut in quarters to fit on standard printers.

Hillshading has been added to each page of the PDF to help visualize the topography.

Give it a try.
