Well, I found an index to the maps I might need here: http://arctic.fws.gov/usgsmaps.htm
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!
