Re: Wahkeena-Multnomah loop 3/20/2020

Interesting map. Technically they should credited OSM contributors somewhere on the sign it’s old data but still from OSM it’s just good the map is more correct than the USFS map

Re: Seasonal Forestry/Recreation work for reforming office worker

You could register for an online forestry class at your local community college. I just spent 8 months in the job market with a change in careers at 52 year of age. It was soul crushing. One thing I learned was that nearly everyone applying for anything out there is lying about their qualifications....

Re: Gaia GPS Rolls Out New Topo Maps

Have you compared it to this? https://naturalatlas.com/map That’s a great map too. It has groundcover coloring at all zoom levels and some elevation tint (hypsometric tint if you ever wondered). Gaia doesn’t but it is worldwide. CalTopo’s MapBuilder layer has groundcover too, but CalTopo is always ...

Re: Gaia GPS Rolls Out New Topo Maps

Yes, web/mobile cartography is subtle and complicated. Getting features to show up at the proper zoom and choosing which features they are. Designing for bad vision or color blindness, etc. Deciding if a line is 0.2 mm wide at one zoom level but 0.3 at another and then balancing that with the other ...

Gaia GPS Rolls Out New Topo Maps

https://blog.gaiagps.com/easy-to-read-tiny-to-download-the-all-new-gaia-topo/ They fixed a lot of bad elevation data and they look quite nice now. It looks like they used CalTopo’s contours layer for elevation but there’s no credit to them so maybe they built it off the USGS DEMs. Anyway, the OSM da...

Re: Found: Winter Gear at Lamberson Spur on Jan. 19th

I just updated OpenStreetMap from the Strava Heatmap data. It’s a heatmap of all the fitness trackers that go up there and it’s likely the most accurate source. It’s good data until the sharp crook in the route from south to west, then it’s anyone’s guess but you can at least see where people go to ...

Haha, yes of course. I only use nickels from 1990 and as it happens, no one else does.
