The purpose of this venture is to create a detailed topographic map of the entire state of Florida at 24k detail. This map is created for Garmin GPS receivers and Mapsource.
- Roads - Interstates, highways, arterial roads, residential roads, limited unpaved roads (2009 Tiger Data)
- High resolution water data - lakes, rivers, streams, and washes
- Federal Land Usage - Wilderness area, national parks, and military bases/ranges, native american reservations
- Borders - County and state boundary lines
- Elevation contours - 5ft intervals (equivalent to 24k)
- GNIS Points of Interest - summits, mines, falls, dams, cemeteries, towers, populated places, etc.
- Trails - trail coverage including all National Forests
- Bathymetric data to 300ft depth for the state
- Wetlands in Dry Tortugas National Park
- State Park Trails/campsites
- Florida National Trail and its accompanying trails; version July 2010
This map covers the entire state of Florida.
Below is a picture of the map inside of mapsource (6.14.X):
This screenshot compares the Florida Topo (left) to Garmin US Topo (middle) to Garmin Topo 2008 (rigth). With the exception of the DEM shading you can see that the Florida Topo is significantly more detailed.
The screenshot below shows some of the attributes this map has that the Garmin Topo's are lacking. In this case, its canoe waterways in the Everglades. Also, this map has bathymetric data.
Two options exist; for windows download and run setup. The map will then appear in Garmin MapSource and can be added to your GPS by selecting it in MapSource and sending it to the GPSr. For Mac download the mac version, extract it and double click the .gmapi file. Map Manager will then install the map for you.
This map can be installed with any other Garmin Maps (How-To Tutorial). Then you simply hide and show other maps until you see the Florida Topo. For more detailed instructions check out this tutorial.
