National Geographic Maps, celebrating 100 years as one of the most trusted names in cartography, will make available hundreds of maps from its Trails Illustrated line through Avenza Systems Inc.’s popular, award-winning PDF Maps app. The addition of these maps, the most popular outdoor recreation maps in North America, augments the PDF Maps app digital map database by incorporating trail maps from a world-renowned source. It also increases National Geographic Maps’ reach within the mobile consumer market, giving more consumers than ever access to the Trails Illustrated line. Trail maps from many of America’s most popular national parks have already been uploaded to the app, including Yosemite, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Zion and Great Smoky Mountains.
With many Ranger Districts throughout the country discontinuing visitor services, Avenza’s PDF Maps app provides an alternative for outdoor enthusiasts planning a trip in remote areas where Internet service is not always available to stream detailed map content. Using National Geographic’s line of detailed recreation maps, PDF Maps app users can purchase, download and save maps on GPS-enabled devices such as Android- and iOS-based phones and tablets. At their destination, park visitors can use the app to find and mark their location directly on the National Geographic map they’ve downloaded. They can take advantage of various interactive features, such as location tagging; dropping waypoints/pinpoints on points of interest; attaching images and notes; and tracking routes, distance and elevation — all while offline.
The National Park Service proposes to amend its special regulations for Lake Meredith National Recreation Area to require permits to operate motor vehicles off roads, designated areas and routes where motor vehicles may be used off roads, create management zones that would further manage this activity, and establish camping, operational, and vehicle requirements. These changes would allow off-road vehicle use for recreation while reducing associated impacts to resources. Unless authorized by special regulation, operating a motor vehicle off roads within areas of the National Park System is prohibited.
