-===== Printed Topo Maps ===== 
-<​bootnote>​ 
-1) What are the Backroad TOPO Maps?</​bootnote>​ 
-The Backroad TOPO Maps are enlarged versions of the Backroad Mapbook maps allowing for 
-easier to see text, smaller roads and contours. Of course our patented road, trail, recreation and 
-topographic information are also included in our unique Canadian Topographic map series. They 
-are printed on large format (60 cm x 80 cm/ 24 x 32), water resistant paper. 
  
-<​bootnote>​2) What is the benefit of a Backroad TOPO Map over other topographic maps?</​bootnote>​ 
-The Backroad TOPO Maps are easily the most up to date and detailed topographic map in 
-Canada. We update our maps every three years and add countless other features not found on 
-other maps. In addition to more roads and trails, we label everything from recreation points and 
-road names to wildlife management areas. They even come printed on water resistant paper! 
- 
-<​bootnote>​3) Who uses your TOPO maps?</​bootnote>​ 
-Whether you are a weekend warrior, a serious backcountry explorer or working in the bush, our 
-maps are designed to get you there safely and confidently. We show more information like roads, 
-trails and recreation points to allow for easier navigation when outdoors. This information will 
-allow you to spend less time looking and more time fishing, hiking, paddling, ATVing and so on. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​4) How up to date are the Backroad TOPO Maps?</​bootnote>​ 
-Generally, our maps are updated every three years to ensure the information is as current as 
-possible. We work with a variety of local sources, government agencies, industry, tourism, clubs 
-and organizations and also our readers to ensure everything is reviewed each time the mapbooks 
-are updated. We pride ourselves on being the most up to date recreation and topographic map 
-source available in Canada. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​5) What topographical information is included on the maps?</​bootnote>​ 
-In addition to contours, we also add relief shading to help get a better feel for the lay of the land. 
-Our map borders include UTM grids and latitude and longitude coordinates,​ while our associated 
-scale bar has also been adjusted to match the UTM grid to allow for more accurate distance 
-calculations between points on the map. These technical features add a new dimension to the 
-maps and are used to help navigate into unfamiliar areas. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​6) What are the scales of your TOPO maps?</​bootnote>​ 
-Our TOPO maps scales vary depending on the area. Starting at 1:60,000 in southern BC and 
-Ontario and 1:90,000 in southern Alberta, we divide the regions similar to tourism and our 
-mapbooks. The further north you go, the smaller the scale. Most northern maps are at a 
-1:200:000 scale. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​7) Where can I find the TOPO maps?</​bootnote>​ 
-Our TOPO maps are only found in specialty stores or on-line. Most fishing and outdoor stores as 
-well as all map retailers should carry a good selection of our Backroad TOPO Map series. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​8) How can I figure out which Backroad TOPO Map to order?</​bootnote>​ 
-Our TOPO maps match the associated mapbook map key. For example Weslemkoon Lake in 
-Eastern Ontario is found on map 20. Our TOPO code for this map is EAON20. If you visit our 
-TOPO Map page in the Shop you will see each mapbook by province or region. Click on that 
-name to find the map key and/or select the TOPO Map by name or number. 
- 
-<​bootnote>​9) What is the difference between Print and Digital TOPO Maps?</​bootnote>​ 
-The Print version is printed on large format (60 cm x 80 cm/24 x 32), water resistant paper. 
-The Digital versions are geo-referenced maps that will work on different software or 
-applications (Google Earth, iPhone/​iPad/​iTouch,​ OziExplorer,​ Fugawi, Memory Map and 
-MacGPS Pro to name a few).
