ATV Navigation Map

I had a call the other day from a gentlemen looking for a map that he can use for his ATV Adventures. Before I explain the story further, I have only made a handful of maps for people calling off the street. Most of our map products are developed through corporate or government contracts and the public can not justify paying hundreds of dollars for a customized map.

His issue was that online mapping was not detailed enough at smaller scale maps outside of 1:20000 and at that scale he would need a 100 maps to cover the area where he would like to travel. He also looked at getting the National Topographic Series, 1:50000 map series, but he still required 5 or 6 maps to cover his area and that gets cumbersome when navigating trails. So he wanted one map with a variety of map features which covered a particular area and work with me to add local features to the map that would not be found on any published map.

Lucky for this customer we have built an all encompassing Esri GIS data source for geographic data for all of Nova Scotia. For our use, we can open this project and access data at any scale for any area across the province. It contains just about every piece of Free GIS data that you can acquire for Nova Scotia with modest looking map colors and contains advanced labeling so that it is print ready at any scale or page size of a map.
