Free Printable Nat Geo Maps

I haven't tried it yet but I saw this news posted earlier today & wanted to pass it along... https://petapixel.com/2016/08/06/nat...raphical-maps/

Thoughts?

More about it in this thread from last summer:
http://www.adkhighpeaks.com/forums/f...usgs-pdf-quads

USGS Topo 7.5' maps have been available for free from ... the USGS. The latest versions can be downloaded from the National Map (created by the USGS). Alternately, you can use Caltopo to print maps (USGS and others) in whatever scale you desire.

Duplicative of what has long been available elsewhere (USGS and others).

Gotcha, thanks.
I usually either use mytopo.com for USGS topos, or docs.unh.edu if I'd rather have the contour intervals in feet instead of meters. Wasn't sure if the Nat Geo would be any better or easier to use. Thanks for the feedback.
