Maps of Mexico
« on: February 26, 2008, 09:37:54 AM »
The Mexican Secretary of Communications and Transportation has issued new maps of each of the Mexican states:

Coahuila (2.5MB pdf file)
Chihuahua (3.8MB pdf file)

They're detailed pdf files, so they are huge.

The other states can be found here.

This thread has links to some Mexican topographic maps. Anyone else have links to maps of Mexico which might help us Benders?

I don't have any help on downloadable maps, but Omni Maps in Burlington NC has the most comprehensive global map inventory of anyone.  www.omnimap.com  it is absolutely incredible.
Funny... I have a story about that...

OK  I followed the link posted by brian67761 below:

http://www.eol.ucar.edu/projects/name/science_planning/MX_maps/mx_map.html

and downloaded maps in tiff format with the metadata file listed below
H13-8 Hermosilla
H13-9 Madera
H13-10 Isla San Esteban
H13-11 Sierra Libre
H13-12 Tecoripa

A mapping program OziExplorer opened these files with calibrated position format.  They cover most of the area just across the river from BIBE.  The scale is large, but what the heck real topo maps of Mexico just across the river.
