About USGS Topographic Maps
The US Geological Survey produces the most detailed nationwide set of maps, known as the 7.5 minute series, at a scale of 1:24,000. TOPO! products include high resolution scans of these maps. Authentic USGS topographic maps contain rich detail you won't find on computer-generated digital maps sold by some GPS manufacturers and others. With TOPO!, you can update these unique maps with trails and much more from our National Recreation Database or add your own information.
Need more than 25 maps?
Expand your coverage by purchasing TOPO! State Series or Weekend Explorer titles. Compared to downloading SuperQuads for $1.00 each - State Series TOPOs are just pennies on the dollar. Adding State Series and Weekend Explorer products to TOPO! Explorer requires internet access and grants you streaming access for printing and customizing topographic map layers only. Aerial imagery and hybrids must be obtained through SuperQuad downloads using map credits.
