GPSy (TM) 3.0 can read and auto-calibrate topographic (digital raster graphic; DRG) maps from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) EROS data center. The maps are sold on CD-ROM and are scanned, geoadjusted, and geocalibrated versions of their paper topographic maps.
USGS DRG topo maps are available on CD-ROM for most of the continental United States from the USGS. In addition, DRGs are available for free via the internet for the Tennessee Valley Area; Pennsylvania; and Nevada. See the USGS DRG Availability page for details.
If you find a GeoTIFF encoded map that opens with "Unrecognized GeoTIFF tags", please contact technical support.
For more information on how to order USGS DRG topo maps on CD-ROM, contact the USGS EROS Data Center:
