Maps for ANWR trip planning on 07/27/2011 19:51:57 MDT Print View

Hi all, I'm at the very beginning stages of a planning a packrafting trip in the Brooks Range / ANWR. What are my options for large scale maps for trip planning purposes? Thanks!

Well, I found an index to the maps I might need here:

That being said, it looks like I will need a half dozen 1:250,000 scale maps for planning purposes. I can buy the paper maps from the USGS store in Denver...

OR I could buy the Nat Geo TOPO Alaska software for $50 for the whole state.

Buying the software seems to me like the easiest option. Can anyone tell me which option they recommend and why? Thanks!
