Nat Geo and USGS Maps Available Free Online

Postby BigDaddyT » Mon Mar 20, 2017 11:56 am

For those of you , like me, who don't have a GPS onboard your boat, I ran across this site from National Geographic and the United States Geological Survey which provides detailed topographical maps which can be downloaded and printed for your area. Simply narrow your search and click on the red dot and then the representation of the map to get to the point of downloading the PDF to your computer. I am going to print and laminate my area in case I ever need them . Electronic devices can and do die, so I want a little backup in case I need it. You can check it out here: http://www.natgeomaps.com/trail-maps/pdf-quads#internalmap. hope this helps.

You can also use the interactive map from the Noaa.gov site you can download the coastal nautical maps.
