    If anyone was using the old quadrangle maps of the smokies on the DLIA site, you might have noticed that section of their website can no longer be found....Ben Zank, the GSMNP cartographic technician, has combined them into one very useful PDF file, which can be downloaded by going here ->
    http://dlia.sunsite.utk.edu/park-maps (Click GeoPDF park map)
    Its very large, takes a minute to download, and a little while to fully load, but once its done, you have all the detailed quads in 1 file, rather than seperate files.

    This map is better, in my opinion, than the trails illustrated map. If you have access to a high resolution color plotter, you've got yourself a free map.

    Grannyknot, this is an excellent map download, Thank you

    Grannyknot, thanks for the info. Kudos to Ben for a job well done.

    A powerful feature of the document is its GeoPDF functionality, which requires the free TerraGo desktop plug-in. Free GeoPDFs donwloads of the original individual quads, in high resoultion, are available from the USGS Map Locator page. With these maps and Ben's, the TerraGo plug-in displays lon/lat and UTM coordinates in text boxes at the bottom right and change as the cursor moves over the map area. Sweet!

    One day I may develop a similar application (long for "app") whereby the fish species present is displayed as the cursor moves over a stream. Version 2.0 would display the hatch in progress..
