    What does RC do with this data. In most cases it's confidential.
    Yes, TuxAir it's a good reference tool for many things.

    Yes a radiation reading compared to a national data base for the given area. Did I say soil and water test too. Oh, photos, some times video.

    Have I hijacked this thread yet? Maybe a little.
    Don't forget the archaeological study! Did I mention I love topo maps.

    The maps may help.....but I'm still having trouble finding things with both hands.

    I'm just a map junkie. I have more maps, compasses & cartography software than I can keep track of.

    Stoopid phone.

    Good link TuxAir! I love topo maps. They've always been an essential part of my surveying business.

    started a topic Nat Geo. Topographical maps.

    Nat Geo. Topographical maps.

    This might be common knowledge but I just found out about this. Nat Geo has put every US Geological Survey (USGS) topographical map from across the United States on one easy-to-navigate site and made them easy to print out at home. Check it out.
