  • Free Custom Topo Quads

    The USGS is offering free Topo Quadrangles at the below link. The program allows you to custom center the map being created on your area of interest, instead of being bound to their existing quads. The interface has a quirk though, at least for my computer, to get the Custom Select tool to appear you have to click where the sample quad is shown, and reselect the 7.5. You should receive the map link to a pdf format map of about 45-50 meg in about 4 days. Cool program, especially for free.
    The U.S. Geological Survey continues to advance the topographic map with on-demand custom mapping.

      Greg, can you highlight this post or pin it maybe? Its always a pain when good resources get buried.

      I'd like to, just can't figure out a good place to pin it where it won't get lost.

      Glad that you found the free USGS service useful. And there doesn't appear to a quantity limit, I'm up to six maps so far.

      Sorry for the shortened terms, quadrangle was hard enough to type once.
