COMMENTS:
This map program is professionally produced from USGS DEM (Digital Elevation Model) data, which are points on a 10-meter grid with elevations.  The program has interpolated between these points to produce contour lines.  Also added are high-resolution water data, roads, streets, and forrest service trails.  In taking the above screen shots, the maps were 'mixed' with other Garmin maps without ill effect.

Loading them into MapSource was remarkably 'uneventful' -for a Win-XP machine.  (I wasn't able to load them into a Win-98 machine, but that needs to be confirmed elsewhere.)  One does notice that the roads are somewhat 'fat', but the purpose of the maps are for OFF road trekking.  With these maps in your GPS, I think you would have to 'work' at getting lost!
