    Default GPS map of my southwest NH sugarbush

    I use a Garmin ForeRunner when I run, and it's easy to download the tracks and import into Google Earth. So that's what I did! I also added a USGS map overlay to show contours.

    Just walking alongside each lateral and mainline, I put this together to share my progress with friends on Facebook:

    I discovered in the process too that Google Earth will generate (using its own terrain data) an elevation profile along a path, which for this example is my mainline. Glad to see the program agrees it's all downhill!

    Hmm...what else can I do with this?

    2014: 300 on gravity and buckets.

    11x30 shack in the woods: no power, no water, inaccessible by anything but snowmobile (and pallet-on-skis trailer) or snowshoes until March.

    thats pretty cool. a forestery guy in my area does a similar procedure mapping your sugrbush roads, mainlines etc. the detail on his system is really refined and the acuracy is very close. Acier forestry , cool maps. i think in a sugarworks large or small mapping can be usefull, or at least fun to keep track of stuff.
