[Cdt-l] New CDTA mapbooks for New Mexico and Colorado

The sales are all through the Lulu publishing system.  Sorry, but there is
no way to bundle them together. 

 

We have one more summer of field work before we finish the entire trail.  We
will be starting in June in Wyoming headed north.  We have about 400 more
miles to walk in Idaho/Montana as well as almost all of Wyoming.  Assuming
we can find the funding for the bookmaking effort, the rest of the books
will be available in 2012. Your purchase of these products will help make
this a reality.  

 

It is our goal to maintain Mapbooks for the entire route that are accurate
and up to date.  There will be ongoing efforts to keep the books abreast of
changes to the trail as they happen.  The beauty of our publishing
arrangement is that books are produced in small lots on demand.  Guidebooks
have customarily started out accurate but are printed in lots of many
thousands.  No changes are possible until they sell out and that can take
years.  These books can be updated as needed. 

 

Our field survey itself is heavily dependent upon government funding for the
purpose of documenting the official route.  We have no plans to do
alternates except where there are official ones.  (Rocky Mountain NP and
Glacier NP) 

 

We carry three professional grade submeter rated gps receivers which
simultaneously collect a point every second as we hike the trail. The data
is differentially post-processed using government reference stations to
increase accuracy.  The resulting data is really impressive, detailing every
switchback and turn.   I think you can see that by visiting the NM book
preview on www.lulu.com and zooming in to something approximating the actual
8.5 x 11" size of the maps.

Hi all,

 

Just a couple of questions regarding the CDTA mapbooks:

 

Is there anyway to bundle the ebook and physical books?

 

When will the rest of the series be released?

 

Do these follow the "official" route?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Steven (Flying Tortoise)

I just went and set it up so it shows maps. I think it's working now.

Excellent!

The lulu.com preview has the first 12 pages of the book previewed, but
none of the maps fall within those first 12 pages.

Is there an example or 2 of what the actual maps look like? I'm sure
plenty of folks will buy them sight unseen, but it would be *real* nice
to see what they look like.

Thanks!
