hi there
I manage a campground adjacent to a national forest with an extensive trail system.
the forest service (FS) puts out a large map yearly, published in hard-copy and on web as a PDF (I think it is GIS, I probably can get their raw data if I know what to ask for). the FS map covers an area much larger than can be accessed from our campground, and leaves off many important details such as local points of interest and open connecting trails that are on private ground.
the FS trails map also changes every year, as they re-locate, close, or open new trails.
so every year we take on the tedious and time-consuming process of creating our local map again . . . which we do with scanning in copies, markers, MS paint, etc. there are many more points of interest that I'd like to add to our local map also.
I would like a system that can be "layered", so that when the FS changes their map we can just add on our info.
hope this request makes sense.
here is link to the FS trails map http://www.fs.usda.g...prdb5139627.pdf
here is link to our local map that we create http://www.hayescany...trails-map.html
thanks for any info anyone can provide or a referral to someone who would do this kind of thing
Pat
p.s. --also as more and more phones have GPS does anyone know if customers could load a map onto their phone and know where they are on the trails? or if we could have a GPS loaded with the maps and rent to customers to take with them on the trails and know where they are?

Hi,

I am interested in learning more about this freelance project. I have 10 years of experience as a professional cartographer, graphic designer, and GIS specialist and likely can be of assistance to you as I have worked on similar trail map projects. I am also connected to trails community and have a close connection to a trails expert who specializes in mapping trails. I can be reached at jennifer.mauldin@gmail.com.

Thanks, and I look forward to hearing more about this project.

I'm interested taking on this project but I don't want to display any business like messages on the public board. Is there anyway this member can be approved if even on a temporary basis so that I can send a private message to keep onlookers from seeing what I write?

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."
