Topo USA shows the bumps
A very slick user interface shows the maps in two dimensions on the right and three on the left. Moving the cursor in the right screen causes a red cone-shaped object to mirror the movement on the left screen.
The level of detail provided is impressive. Starting out with a view of the entire northeast United States, it took me only a few mouse movements to zero in near my house in Summit, N.J., and to discover that section of Tulip Street is 404 feet above sea level.
Other checks of favorite hiking trails showed them very accurately and the birds-eye 3-D view suggested new routes that might reward the dog with some unmarked trees. Besides looking at the maps on screen, you can print them to a size as large as 3 feet by 3 feet on an ordinary printer (you then assemble the pieces). And, if you're a trailblazer and find a trail or road that doesn't exist in the database, there's a feature that lets you draw it in appropriately. For the really high-tech hiker, there's even a connection to display location from a Global Positioning System (GPS).
