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.
