Map list legend
This is the legend for the TIMaps list.
This is the scale in the format 1:(whatever) is shown in this column. The exact numbers are somewhat meaningless in a GPS map context. In general, however...
- larger numbers mean
- smaller scale: less detail over bigger area
- if you zoom in too far, map looks ragged
- most useful when travelling long distances quickly, e.g., driving
- smaller numbers mean
- larger scale: more detail over smaller area
- if you zoom out too far, map may disappear from your GPS screen
- most useful when travelling shorter distances more slowly, e.g., walking
- COMP: composite images, generally half LIDAR, half SAT
- LIDAR: black and white shaded images showing shape of the ground under the trees, from remote sensing with bare ground lidar
- ROAD: streets and roads, may show outlines of vegetated areas and other natural features such as lakes and rivers
- SAT: high-resolution satellite images
- TOPO: from old topographic maps
- TOPO2: from newer NRCan topographic database, still not really up to date in Yukon
