are unlike anything you've seen so far.
While they mirror standard United States
Geological Survey 7.5 minute topographic maps in
quadrangle name, size and coverage, amTopo maps have a completely different look
and feel. Standard USGS maps are 100% raster-based (scanned pictures that are not
scalable) and are limited by their printed
form. And, most of them have not been
updated in 20, even 30 years. amTopo maps on the other
hand, feature completely updated vector - i.e. scalable
- elements (roads, trails, recreational facilities) and
are rendered on-the-fly from dynamic databases
that are continuously being updated. Additional elements such
as color shaded relief and custom labels make amTopo
maps stand apart from all other recreational print or
web maps. It may help to know that members of our
own staff utilize and trust amTopo maps while on their
own hiking trips and outdoor adventures.
quadrangles are being created daily and we offer maps
printed on regular or waterproof paper to meet your
needs. Please visit www.amtopo.com
