River MapBooks are your on-river topographic map paddling companions. They will help show you where you are & what’s around you, how far you’ve got to go, and what’s around the next bend.
Most guidebooks don’t tell you the whole story: while you should consult one for broad planning details like sorting the logistics of putting in & taking out, finding out how difficult the river is, and what to expect along the way, most stop at just identifying the topographic maps required for your trip.
Managing numerous large, cumbersome and expensive topographic maps is a challenge to even the most veteran paddlers. Now there’s a better way to bring these detailed maps with you in one manageable package, thanks to River MapBooks.
> Use Canadian NTS maps, Canada's premier source for detailed & accurate topographic maps -- these are seamlessly edge-matched
> What this means: vast river lengths spanning dozens of NTS maps, are conveniently compressed into one manageable document, representing a significant cost savings (NTS maps are ~$12 EACH!)
> Have stunning visuals: they have integrated 3-Dimensional shading, to better visualize mountains, bluffs and valleys than on the original NTS maps
> Allow you to use your GPS to see where you are! I've included the UTM and Latitude/Longitude grids, a north arrow, and scale bars
> Have maps that are always oriented along the river -- no twisting & turning of the map book required!
> Are a conveniently-sized Letter (8.5"x11") format, fitting in a waterproof map cover/case or large-format zipper-seal bags
> Are printed on a waterproof paper for protection against the elements.
