You can zoom in and get a topo and a satelite image of equal scale in one screen.

That's a cool link, xj......I love playing with it and put it up quite a while back, but it was buried in another thread.  Thanks for letting everyone know about it again, otherwise many people would never have the opportunity to try it. :'(  Did I ever tell you that I like maps, too? :lol:

I viewed that thread before. Missed this link. I should always do a search first. This place has gotten big.

I wonder how long before Google either buys them out comes up with their own version. What a fantastic idea.

I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

Great link, thanks.  The maps are brand new, too. They are still building a small strip center near our house in the satellite map and are just finishing it in real time.

Thanks guys.  I love maps.
