Upon my return from a fantastic North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS) meeting, I found a link to a product video in my Inbox for something called MAP. Feeling a little overwhelmed by all that I took in while at that meeting in Greenville, South Carolina, I hesitated to click on it. Boy, am I glad I did!
This product is ingenious! I think everyone should have one (or two, or three, or twelve!). It is compact, lightweight, perfectly suited to almost any environment, and needs no batteries. I encourage you to take a few minutes to see what I'm talking about and click on the video below.
After you've taken in that demo, I suggest you view a video on Adventure Cycling's version of this incredible product — the Adventure Cycling Route Network maps. They include all the features mentioned above and more!
Viva la MAP!
