    Default Maps

    Does anyone know where I could get detailed maps of Alaska and/or specific areas of Alaska. I am having a hard time finding good detailed maps.

    I used to go to the USGS office on UAA's campus but now I just go to sportsmans warehouse and print one out for whatever exact area I want.

    National Geographic TOPO! is a great progam for maps. It also can download and upload to your GPS.

    You might also want to check out:

    www.MyTopo.com

    they can print your map on waterproof paper or laminate and you can adjust EXACTLY the area you want printed even if from different grids...another option in addition to the above.

    The Map Store on the APU (Alaska Pacific University) campus in Anchorage has every pre-printed map of AK you will ever need.

    If you are looking for something a little more custom, I would have to agree to go with some of the mapping software. You can print out any scale map of a specific area you want.

    Default Maps

    I use both the National Geographic topo maps from my computer and Google earth together. I can update the National Geographic topo maps that I've saved in the computer with GPS plots of camp sites, locations I've spotted game, and any other important landmarks. The two sources complement each other well, and I too laminate with the laminate folders. Wet maps are hard to read. lol
