    "Go on a trip outdoors"

    THE VERDICT

    US Topo Maps helps you take trips to the backcountry of the US, whether you’re an experienced outdoorsman or just someone looking to see what gems lie nearby your city. This app works by providing aerial images and topographic maps of almost anywhere in the U.S. You can also create and edit your waypoints to get around faster. US Topo Maps also features a handy GPS compass that shows you which way you’re facing or headed, right down to your exact GPS coordinates.

    THE PROS

    US Topo Maps may seem to have an overly complicated interface, but once you get up and running, you’ll find it’s quite easy to use. This app supports community-created and edited OSM, or Open Street Maps, and Google Maps. It’s also free to try out.

    THE CONS

    The free version of US Topo Maps features flashing advertisements, which quickly become quite annoying. You can’t download or load offline maps in the free version.

    The topographic maps were created by Land Information New Zealand (LINZ).
    Topo50 is the official topographic map series used by New Zealand emergency services.

    How topographic information is used
    Defence planning: New Zealand's defence forces use topographic information for planning military exercises and swapping information with international partners.
    Location and routing: Search and Rescue, defence, ambulance, fire service, police and civil defence agencies use topographic information in a wide range of planning and operational situations, from natural disasters to community policing. Usage may involve mobile/field and control room situations, and the combination of topographic information with other data.
    Land management: Topographic information is used by local government for regional planning and operations, and by power, gas and telecommunications companies.
    In addition, LINZ maps are used for a great variety of purposes by businesses and government departments such as the Department of Conservation, and by recreational users such as trampers and tourists.

    All topographic maps have additional labels for better readability at higher zoom scales. Maps are rendered with Atlogis hillshading to enhance topography.

    Topo Map Coverage:
    New Zealand and Islands (Antipodes, Auckland, Bounty, Campbell, Chatham, Kermadec, Raoul, Snares and Stewart Islands) at scale 1:50.000 and 1:250.000

    It says it is using the NZ Topo50 map, but it is clearly using the old NZMS260 series maps. NZMS260 was superseded by Topo 50 in 2003! NZMS260 is dangerously out of date.
