The cloudhiking trail maps were originally designed as quick fix navigation maps. Looking at the map it was easy to find your approximate location from the waypoints as long as you stayed on the trail or path.
The original maps were not intended to be used as true cross country navigation maps. In the summer of 2011, we began producing geo-referenced maps. The new maps include a grid, scale, north arrow, and geo-referencing data. We will update the old maps to the new standards; but be patient, it is a lot of work and we have many areas we are still wanting to map!
Ideally, the maps were designed for electronic devices. They work great viewed on a smart phone using a pdf reader app (application).
For use with an iPhone or iPad, download the iBook app (free) from the iTunes store. Then open iTunes and click on the Books tab in the sidebar. Download any of the maps in pdf and simply drag them into the open iBooks window. Sync your iPhone or iPad.
Another incredibly easy way to download, once again for Apple users, from the mobile device (ipad, ipod, iphone) browse to the map you want to download, touch near the top of the screen, and you are prompted, to open the document (map) in iBooks (the app). That's it!
The maps may be printed; but there are a few issues. We did not worry about the size of the maps since they were designed to work on a smart phone - the file size was all that was important. The maps dimensions are sized by location and may not be compatible with paper sizes. Also, the maps are designed for color screens. When printed on a color printer the shades are fine; but when printed in gray scale the colors blend into illegible grayness. We have made printable gray scale copies of several of the maps, if there is interest, we could do others.
If you have trouble using the maps, have corrections, or ideas for improvements, please send us an email.
