GMap Back to Category List

"GMap" displays topo maps and satellite views. The "G" stands for Google. There is a GMap link on every mountain and trip page. When you click it, you see a 1:50K topo map. Overlaid on top are the bivouac roads, trails and peaks. There are so many things you can do with GMap that I have written a special <a href=PgxPg.asp?PgxId=3305>GMap Tutorial</a> which walks you thru a lot of the features.

In addition to using GMap to search for information, you can use it to prepare Trip Report waypoints. Many of the help pages concerning GMap are under "Writing Trip Reports".
