Been working on a desktop version of a park map. Idea is to be able to print in poster size.

One view of the MDA with 20' contours.

and a view of the Chisos  and the Dodson

Here is one in .png format.

I have the whole park in this resolution. None of these formats do it justice because the lossy compression of .pdf and .png. The original is sharp, but huge files.

Yes, great work. This is a massive project. And we’re all going to benefit from it. Thanks, BK.

Here is a link to the whole park overview in 1:24000. No roads yet, but I'll get to them. Also there is no data available in Mexico in the southeast corner.

Caution...big file. It's too big (80mb) to preview in google so hit the download button and view in you picture app. Don't even try on a phone.
