  • Avenza and Geo Reference TIFF maps for all of Canada

    I've been using Avenza with some geo reference PDF maps for Canada and JUST found out Avenza will read Geo Reference TIFF maps and you can get the 1:50K HI RES BASE TOPO maps for all of Canada here.

    Download the KMZ file and open it in Google Earth. You will then see all the maps in grids. Click on the map # and you can download the ZIP file in your browser and I'm doing this on my laptop with Fire Fox. I'm then adding the map name IE Squamish to the ZIP file and the TIFF file when I unzip then copy over to my phone.

    FYI these are BASE TOPO maps and not trail maps and each map is about 46MB.

    You can download one of the Squamish maps if you want to play with it in Avenza or any picture viewer.

      Excellent tip. Thanks for sharing this. A bit of monkeying around going back and forth between Google Maps and Chrome to download them but it works fine.
