Re: What are you playing?

I recently discovered 7 Days to Die. It's an excellent mix of survival, crafting, zombie horror, all in a open world kinda format, and its freaking hard. Starting out you will probably keep dying a lot due to starvation, infection, or zombie attacks. It's a indie game with slow development. It's com...

Re: Google Maps and Military Grid and UTM Maps.

How well do your grid lines match up with the divisions on paper maps? Well that depends on what you mean by the divisions on paper maps... If you mean the UTM grids on USGS maps then mine are pretty spot on. Take for example a USGS map... http://ims.er.usgs.gov/gda_services/download?item_id=552727...

Google Maps and Military Grid and UTM Maps.

I was looking to collect maps of my area for a while. They are easy enough to find on USGS sites and others. However, depending on the area they can be old, outdated, inaccurate, or just not have the information you need on them. Google Maps is great but lacks the UTM and MGRS grids that I would lik...

After you download the PDF's from the USGS you can take them to staples or your office supply store of choice and get them printed on 24" x 36" poster paper for like 4 bucks in black and white. Its an option.
