basher_boy Posted April 14, 2002 Share Posted April 14, 2002 Anybody want to talk about topo softwarefor PCs? I am using National Geographic's Topo. It cost a C-note for NJ, CT, RI, VT, NY, NH, MA, and ME. I am really impressed with it. The maps are good enough to navigate from with a compass. (I don't have a GPSr yet, but will helpfully have one soon). On the site (www.topo.com) you can download current trail maps for many parks and other POI. I am moving to PA soon and will be Geocaching alot in MD. I will have to buy another two-hundred dollars of maps from Topo. I recently tried Delorme's Topo USA, but the maps were so undetailed that I couldn't hope to use them for compass navigation. Delorme Topo USA fits the whole USA on two fewer CDs than it takes NG Topo for the above mentioned states. Maptech that look pretty good, but would be interested in what other programs people might like and why. Quote Link to comment
