Navigation Aids
« on: February 02, 2016, 02:58:57 PM »
 Did not see any other place to post this. Any how, I recently went to a county office and had them print out, in large binder sized pages all the county maps in Alberta and had them laminated. Cost $200, worth priceless.

Take care

Thx. It's an useful aid without a compass all range and township roads are on them and you can just give a LLD eg NW13 4 15 W3 and travel right to it. Not many people actually know how to use legal land descriptions. So it can be a small part of your opsec.

I wonder if that is available in Ontario? I know you can do it yourself online.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

I'm not sure about county maps, but the topo basemaps are freely available from NRCAN.
Their 1:45,000 maps are fantastic and I've used them for years, bush camping.

You can still find paper ones for small areas in outfitters, but the only place I know that carried the entire Ontario collection in stock was the Cobalt Bookstore, now sadly expired and closed. If you're taking them out, I recommend laminating them in segments.
