Canadian Topographic Map Software




SoftMap produces a range of high definition digital topographic maps that are exact copies of current Canadian federal topographic maps. They are reproduced under license from Natural Resources Canada.Canadian Topographic Map Software - Covers of topo50 CD-ROMs

Each SoftMap volume contains approximately 200 topographic maps at scales of 1:50,000 and 1:250,000. These digital products were produced using paper map versions which were scanned and digitally compiled to produce seamlessly joined coverage. This allows the user to pan continuously across large areas. The maps can also be centered on the interest area and printed using home office printer. Furthermore, the maps can be customized by adding any of the 150 built-in icons and roads and tracks can be added.

The maps are packaged in CD format to cover the whole of British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec at scales of 1:50,000 and 1:250,000 with each province divided into convenient sectors. GPS Interface is available as required.

A Maritimes volume is nearing completion that will cover Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. (Due early October 2003)

SoftMap has recently signed an agreement with the Quebec government allowing them reproduce their 1:20,000 scale topographic maps for a new Quebec Topo 20 series. Added functionality are search capabilities for "street addresses search" and "places of interest" to further enhance this new product range.

All the provinces of Canada are contained in one package at a scale of 1:250,000. There are also specialized maps of Québec for hunters and fishermen, as well as, A.T.V. users and campers.
