Default Topographic Maps

I know Google earth is an excellent mapping resource, but I was hoping anyone had link(s) to various topographic maps for basically anyplace you can think of that are easily printable. I find it an excellent addon when you (as GM) are gonna explain how steep a mountain is etc... and its a bit easier to write footnotes,units buildings not on GE etc when it is in mono (black and white.)

HQ used to use TOPO USA - but they don't ship outside the US. And maps from other contries is just as interesting.

I would suggest looking for USGS topographical maps and Google earth. I know that Google maps integrates with the USGS data base so I would assume that Google earth would as well. This is of course assuming you are looking for United States information.

Very topical. Sounds good.

Default Topo Map Resource

Greetings to all,

I am a new member that has been lurking here for a while. I found a map layer to add to Google Maps that links not only to USGS maps, but also the Army Map Service collection at the Perry-Castaeda Library at Univ of TX. These maps cover a LARGE portion of the world in good detail. The only caveat is that they are fairly old maps, from the 40s, 50s & 60s... Still good stuff though...

Cheers,

Chris

Welcome aboard. Thanks for posting this. The few maps I have looked at so far are really interesting.
