TOPO Explorer A New National Recreation Database
Friday, 20 June 2008
Image National Geographic's new national recreation database called TOPO! recently debuted and is filled with detailed maps, aerial imagery, updated trails, and points-of-interest from government agencies, partner associations, and National Geographic Trails Illustrated.

Registration is free and once registered, you can download Trip Files for use with their new free desktop application, plus you can create and share your own custom maps, GPS tracks, photos, and videos as well. When you're ready to hit the trail, you can use their Map Store to purchase the exact maps you need for just $1.00 each, then download them into the application to print or connect to a GPS.

Their site has 38 active forums on a wide variety of topics to help visitors connect with other enthusiasts and share ideas and experiences. Additionally, the TOPO! Explorer desktop application adds a lot of functionality to the content and community features of the free website including the ability to download detailed maps, aerial images and hybrids. The software can control your GPS by marking and managing points of interest and then loading them to your receiver. You can easily share your findings with other users of the software.

TOPO.com and TOPO! Explorer are products of National Geographic Maps, a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Geographic Society. Based in Evergreen, Colorado and Washington D.C., the maps division produces a globe-spanning line of wall maps, travel maps, digital maps, and globes.
