    I saw this on TGR and its so rad I had to post it here too. You can get a hi-res tiff of every topo in the US for free!! The files are huge so its kind of a pain to use them unless you have something like photoshop to view them in. But the are very hi-res and you can get great detail out of them. And they are free!!

    Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968.

    Pretty cool. Not sure if it’s the same setup, but I’ve been using
    http://www.offroute.com/
    to help me navigate the backcountry. You can view the topos online and memorize them (which helps for short jibs), or you can also buy any topo map of any format, of any size, encompassing any geographical area you want. Forget buying the Forest Service quad maps. Log on to offroute and you can merge any square/rectangle of land(based of the FS 7.5 quads) and have them send it to you.

    Maps are cool. 8)

    No route or distance tools though……can’t have it all for free.

    I too dig topofusion.com. It’s desktop software that pulls maps from terraserver. It has some great features but there is a learning curve to climb…
    Epic mountain biker, Scott Morris of Tucson, AZ created the software. I used topofusion and GoogleEarth to plan/map/GPS upload a 773 off-road bicycle ride Across Arizona – http://www.juniper-solutions.com/aztrek/.

    I am having issues with the Canadian option. It says I have a firewall issue, but I checked and I don’t believe this to be the case.

    Anyone else?
