The purpose of this venture is to create a detailed topographic map of the entire state of Hawaii at 24k detail. This map is created for Garmin GPS receivers and Mapsource.
- Roads - Interstates, highways, roads, limited unpaved roads (Tiger 2009)
- High resolution water data - lakes, rivers, streams, marshes, and washes
- Federal & State Land Usage - Wilderness area, national parks, and military bases/ranges, native american reservations, state parks, wildlife preserves
- Borders - County and state boundary lines
- Elevation contours - 30ft intervals (equivalent to or greater than 24k)
- Points of Interest - summits, mines, falls, dams, cemeteries, towers, populated places, hotels, harbors, wrecks, etc.
- Trails - Na Ala Hele State Trails and Access System, a couple other random trails
- Parks POI - trailheads, camping sites, forest service huts within the national parks/forests
This map covers the entire state of Hawaii.
These two screenshots show the Hawaii Topo on a Garmin 60csx (night mode). On the left is part of the Hilo Watershed Forest Reserve. On the right is part of Honolulu:
This screenshot demonstrates how this topo looks in the new version (6.14.X+) of Garmin MapSource:
This final screenshot compares the Hawaii Topo to Garmin's US Topo Hawaii and Garmin's Topo 2008:
As you can see the Hawaii Topo shows where state parks are and also has trail coverage that is lacking in Garmin's topo maps.
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.
