Maps & Map Software

Canoeing.com Definition: Maps and mapping software are available in a wide range of detail, so it is best to research the recommended maps for a specific paddling destination. In general, maps intended for navigational use should include key way-finding features: topographic lines, access points on rivers and lakes, manmade landmarks like roads and railways and natural features like treeline, swamps, whitewater sets, etc. When selecting maps, remember that small scale maps (less than 1:62,500) cover a larger area with less detail, and large scale maps (larger than 1:62,500) cover a smaller area in greater detail. When using mapping software, there are two main types: raster scans, or scans of printed maps, that tend to be more detailed and demand more memory, making them best for use on home computers; and vector maps that are created digitally and tend to be more compatible with GPS units.
