Topo maps (US)

Filed under: General MTBGuru stuff,Mapping — mtbguru @ 7:05 pm

We’ve added a new map type, ‘Topo Maps’ – you can select this type using the selection buttons in the top right corner of the trip map:

Selecting this map type will serve you USGS topographical map data, with a scale determined by your map zoom level. Thanks to the USGS (US Geological Survey) for providing this great and free service. Unfortunately, only topo data of the US is available – we’re not aware of any similar open online databases like this for other areas in the world (if you know some, please let us know).

An example of how it looks like:
