Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Map Source details
« on: November 20, 2008, 04:52:10 AM »
As I learn more about my GPS and the tools available to manage it, I was wondering how I could get more detail to show up on Map Source when reviewing data transfered from my Colorado. It appears that the topo detail in the Colorado is not available on Map Source. I can get other maps to show but unfortunately there isn't another topo available for Michigan here.

I used the map all last week and found it very useful and accurate. There were many situations were we needed to know precisly what kind on land we were on and what we were shooting over. Your map was a great asset, Thank you. I could see many uses for this type of map in other states as well, I am surprised that it doesn't exist already.

I appreciate all the effort here, I think my issue may be too many layers or too much data on the card. It works for now and I'll sort the rest out later.

One issue I noted is when I installed the entire map set to my device it would not boot up unless I removed the SD card. did not have time to evaluate why at this point.

OZ,
i looked at the file and it is a very creative way to display the data, Using hash marks for this purpose is a perfect solution. I can tell easily based upon the location what type of land use it is and it is transparent enough to allow the other details to come through. Great work. I am sure it will be useful to others as well. Impressive turnaround time as well !!!

OZ,
I wanted to add that your site help me get mapsource set up and pointed me in the right direction (no Pun Here) for free maps and many other resources. This is a wealth of information.

OZ,
I had no idea how diffucult this could be and have had no luck finding anyone else that has tackled this before. I am leaving Friday morning so if you don't think you'll have much success before then I will have to work around it with manual maps.

Thanks for stepping up to the task as you did, that really speaks well for what kind of person you are.

OZ,
 for my needs beggars can't be choosers, but to post for others certainly the latter is best.
Seriously, I appreciate anything you can do. Too bad somebody didn't have this already. I contacted the University of Wyoming GIS group and they didn't have anything either.

The Quads I am most interested in are Reno Junction,Newcastle,Bill, Lance Creek, Douglas and Lusk if that makes it easier for you.

I tried to post the file but it was to large,
I downlaoded the shape file from the following site;

http://www.sdvc.uwyo.edu/atlas/ it is under the introduction as Land Ownership.

I will try and add the attachment again under a separate post.

Map Making Support / Wyoming land status (Need help quickly)

I am very impressed with the work done here on this forum. I am new to GPS units, just purchased a Colorado 400t and have a dilemna. I am leaving in a couple days for a hunt in Wyoming. I wanted to use the Colorado to easily see if I am on BLM or Federal land versus private land. The topo loaded does not do that and I am afraid I don't have time to try and create what I need. Can anyone point me to a mapset that I can easily (quickly) download and use for this trip ? Any help would greatly be appreciated.
