USGS 1:24000 isn't about the specific scale so much as the level of detail depicted in the series. And the detail isn't so much about man made features, which can change or have inaccuracies, as it is the topography and hydrology, which are more or less static and the main focus of navigation. I believe Jonathan's maps are portions of USGS 1:24000 digitized maps at a sub-40% scale reduction. Of course what makes them work is all of the work he puts into them to show the route options and suggestions for travel. The fine map detail and the CDT-specific add-ins work synergistically to make the product the wonder to behold that it is. <br/><br/>Brett<br/><br/><br/>Sent from Yahoo! Mail for iPhone
