Northwind GPX files...helping you get more out of your maps

 

Each printed maps set comes with Global Exchange Format files, commonly referred to as GPX files.  A GPX file (wapoint with lat/long) helps you pin point the identified cuts that are shown on your maps using your GPS. These GPX files correspond with the cuts on our printed map sets and the maps that display on your Custom Maps enabled Garmin gps units using our microSD cards.

 

Below is an example of what the GPX files look like overlaid onto Google earth.  The first set of numbers is the year the cut (Aspen) was harvested and the second set of numbers is the size of the cut in acres.
