Ottertooth has written an article on this new map, which is now available and will be of interest, to those of you who travel in the area.

A great looking resource.

I'm glad stuff like this is still happening. Great for the canoeing community.

My understanding is that they sold out at the Symposium.... lots of interest, lots of demand. Great looking map! :thumbup:

Tsk, Tsk, Tsk. The lengths that some people will go to serve the paddling community!

Glad to see that it's out!
I just posted an explicit link to the map at
http://myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=34021
To make the entry more noticeable, I included the old blurb. I'll replace it with a new one if the latter is available.

I am very interested in this map, but it says it's NOT for "field use"?? Why not? Is it just a decorative wall map? I plan to buy it anyway, even if it's just to donate some support. But it'd be great if it was for field use, any thoughts?

Thanks.

Maybe because at 42x52 inches it is a little unwieldly.

Dave is correct:
Two of us from Friends of Temagami were at the Kitchener Waterloo Canoeing Symposium, and brought 30 copies of our newly printed FOT Adventure Planning Map with us to kind of 'test the waters' to try and gauge interest in our mapping project.

We were pleasantly surprised by the level of interest: we sold every copy we had with us, :thumbup: and left a line up of disappointed people who wanted a copy.

The good news is that we have more being printed, and are available on the FOT website at http://www.friendsoftemagami.org

This map covers such a huge geographic area that it would not be practical for navigation in the field.

We had a long dialogue over this issue: should we create a bunch of smaller localized maps, or one big planning map: we agreed on the latter, and the response so far has been very positive. Many of the people I have spoken to have indicated that they are very happy with the fact that there is finally a single map that covers the entire Temagami paddling district.

It is primarily a planning map due to the scale and the paper size required for such a vast wilderness area, but the information can easily be transferred to the 1:50 000 topo maps. In fact, there is even a reference to which Provincial topo map is required for each specific area.

Pick one up. You'll be glad you did.

Mike

For those of you in the Kitchener / Waterloo / Guelph area, I was in Adventure Guide, in Waterloo today and they have a supply of the Friends of Temagami, Adventure Planning Map, Edition 2, which is a high gloss print version that looks very nifty.

Hi Swift..you could photo copy sections of the new map to take along.It would be a little hard to fold map up to do so because of its size,or you could take a picture of sections and print it off if your good with a camera..just an idea !!!!

I took my 1st ed. map and cut it into roughly 8x11 sheets. Then I laminated them back to back and three hole punched them. Now they're in a binder, and I can take whichever sections I need on trip with me.
