Coverage: this app makes available more than 70, 000 maps covering the United States, including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Canada.

The Maps: This app uses high-quality scans of the traditional USGS and NRCan topographic maps which have been the definitive resource for hikers and other backcountry users for many years. You can make the terrain stand out with hill shading, using simulated sunlight from the direction of your choice. This app does not use the new "US Topo" maps because they do not show hiking trails and lack other details: please see the web site for more details.

Downloading: US maps are around 8 MB in size and download in a few seconds on a typical home broadband connection. Canadian maps are larger. Both cellular data and WiFi can be used, though WiFi is likely to be more reliable in most cases.

We have many ideas for additional features to add to future versions of this app; if you have ideas or other questions or comments, contact details can be found on the website, http://topomapsapp.com/. The website also has more screenshots and other information.

Great

:
It's like having every USGS map at you fingertips, well at least the ones I need for the southeast. The scans are great and on wifi the high resolution map downloads are pretty fast.

4/5 stars

It

:
This app is great for the maps, and while the scans of some of the sheets weren't the best, they were still very good. My criticism with the app is the accuracy of the location tool. It invariably was off for latitude and longitude compared to desktop applications of USGS topographic maps, and consistently off by up to +/- 300 ft for elevations in mountainous areas, even when centered on a contour line or a known point or marker. And while this isn't critical if the accuracy isn't important, it is when accuracy is important for work when you need the tool.

4/5 stars

Good program

:
The program loaded well and has many excellent features. The topo maps are from the 80's so be aware of this if attempting to use them with a hand held compass (e.g. declination diagram no longer valid). I also noted that the elevations posted on the maps may not coincide with what the program says the elevation for a particular grid coordinate is. However, this is a trivial issue if you only want to use these for GPS navigation on foot. Excellent work!
