Hi, I'm brand new to DeedMapper, so I can't be of any help. I'd be
interested, however, in any usable and suitable answer you find to your
Thanks for writing. And good luck. Shirley

Subject: [DMU] NGS and Delorme TopoQuad maps question
I'm new to the group even though I've had DeedMapper for 4 years. I've
just started to seriously use it and am interested in whether anyone has
any experience with using either the National Geographic Society's topo
map programs (they sell for about $100 per state) or Delorme's TopoQuad
maps (basically the same price).
Has anyone tried capturing images from either of these programs and
been successful in using the results? If so, am I better off using the
maps from Direct Line Software or scanning a purchased USGS map?
My initial reaction is that resolution and scaling the map image
properly to work with DeedMapper would be the key to whether it would be
worth using the above mentioned topo map programs or not. They aren't
cheap, but if they work well maybe they would be worth it if one has
enough M&B plots in one state to justify it.
Thanks for your efforts and time in replying or commenting.
Take care all... Pete
