    Default Sugarbush GPS map

    Finally finished GPSing and editing the map for the sugarbush we help with. Mainlines are plotted, somewhere between 5300-5400 taps.

    I have a Garmin Rino 655t that did most of the work. I also have the Garmin topo 24k program which allows you to send everything to Google Earth. I have a Garmin topo map done up as well. Once I figured out the line styles and properties in Google Earth, I made a pdf and did all the labeling with Bluebeam. We now have a full page 11x17 laminated copy in the shack which is pretty neat. I am guessing I have about 40 hours total into it, including mapping.

    I assume you laid out your mains by creating a slope map from a DEM?
