Scroll seamlessly through quad after quad. No more cutting and pasting incongruous paper quad maps together. Print exactly the area maps you want. Plus, you can easily find what you are looking for. Search for quads, geographic features, placenames, street addresses, latitude/longitude coordinates and more.

Finely control the map images with both detail-level and photo-zoom tools. There are 97 viewing levels of amazing map detail.

Save the latitude/longitude waypoints for a location with your stand-alone GPS receiver, download them to the software, and see their locations on 3-D TopoQuads 2.0 maps.

Preview your destination in detailed 3-D. Adjust the pitch and rotate the 3-D views to examine the terrain in a whole new dimension. Profile elevation changes, show the terrain distance, horizontal distance, and more. Measure distances in feet or meters, and calculate areas in square feet, acres, or hectares.

This is a very easy to use and useful program. What makes Topoquads so special is the ability to project the map into 3-D - you can really see the terrain you will be traveling. It also prints profiles so you easily determine not only distance but elevation differences. For mountaineering a real must in a mapping program.

It's very easy to use. If I have a criticism, it's that seems not yet to support UTM, but I imagine that's coming.
