Exploring the unknown (for you at least) just got a whole lot easier. Thanks to everyone over at National Geographic, every single US Geological Survey topographical map is available and ready to be printed on an easy to use website.
This is great news, especially considering finding a map using the USGS hasn’t always been easy, mainly because the files aren’t standard printer paper friendly.
The printable PDF map comes out on five different pages. The first page shows the entire area, or quad, you’re looking at. The other four pages break the quads into four sections so you have an easy to view topographical map. To make it even better and easy to visualize, Nat Geo added shading to hills, allowing you to better understand the area before you venture out.
