    Thanks Clay, With the above, I just started my document "How to use Land Matters" in Word so I can toggle between the two. Now all I need to do is go back in this thread and copy and paste. Maybe I should call it "Land Matters Maps for Dummies?"

    Heck Jeff95531 the "for dummies" version of help is already on the map. Just click on the "HELP" button at the top right of the map window. There is a illustrated guide to using each map tool right there. Click on the "Search" subject next to the binocular symbol in that HELP window.

    Help is always there with just a click while you are using the map. If you need more information just Contact Land Matters or ask on the forum here. I'm sure your questions will be answered.

    Yeah... I've been using the Greaterville FootPrints program for some time now and I'm STILL finding new stuff. The maps on the site are set up almost exactly like those in FootPrints. Of course since Clay opened up the My Land Matters site I've been using it to research the areas S.E. of Kingman. When I move, I'll leave the Greaterville program with Robi since she will still be working that area when the mood strikes her.

    Thanks to Clay, I've been learning new things on almost a daily basis. Things that I only had a faint clue about before have become much more into focus and very quickly. ANYONE that wants to be a serious miner can find something on the My Land Matters site to up their game without much effort. I'd also suggest that people go back through Clays posts here and copy them to a file for off-line reference. I know I'm going to be doing just that!

Maybe a cheaper laptop with a good Pelican or Anvil case.
    Look for used CF models on eBay. Any other laptop and you will be really sorry you didn't get the daylight screen found on the Toughbooks. A regular laptop isn't going to survive dropping or kicking either, even with the pelican case.

    You can pick up a good CF Toughbook touch screen version with 1.6Ghz and a Gig of ram for around $250 - $500 on eBay. You won't need anything faster for in the field work. The nice thing is you don't have to worry about "wear and tear".

    Avoid the ex police models and anything from the DOD. They wipe the drives and without the Toughbook specific operating system you will lose all the cool features like GPS, Touchscreen and heated keyboard etc.

    Check Colorado Geology Map Additions

    I've been so busy I forgot to put these new changes up.

    The Colorado Geology Map has two new layers Faults and Dikes.

    More good geology information coming soon.

    Enjoy Colorado!

    What a great idea and informative website! I've only visited it using my phone, so I'll have to wait until I have access to a desktop computer before I can experience it fully. I look forward to seeing South Dakota added to the Claims maps. Definitely a useful tool/website, I'm going to be sure to send a donation that direction!

    Check New Geology Feature - Tell us what you think!

    I warned you there was a lot more coming.

    By request we've added a few new features to the Idaho Geology Map. We've added a Faults Layer and a new Idaho Rock Samples layer with 26,000 Rock samples taken from all over the State.

    The Rock Samples layer has a link to the chemical analysis of each rock sample. The analysis is presented in an easy to read table broken down by percentage or ppm (parts per million) of each element.

    Even if you don't have an interest in Idaho geology I hope you will take a look at this new feature and let us know if you would like to see one of these Rock Sample layers on your State's geology map.

    As you can imagine building a map from all these samples takes some considerable time. I think it's a very useful feature not only for prospectors but for rock and gem hunters or anyone interested in the nitty gritty of an areas geology. If we get good feedback on this new feature we could begin to include it in your state's geology map.

    Let us know what you would like to see. Contact Land Matters.

    Well I for one would like to see the rock samples layer in Arizona at some point in the future. As it stands right now I've got sooooo much research to do that having them there now would only be a major distraction to my current mission.

    I have already been finding so many areas that I want to check out that the only way I'd ever be able to get to them all would be if I had an ACME jetpack! So many of these areas will require hiking for miles to get to them!

    I was able to finally get away from my phone and use an actual desktop computer to check out Land Matters, and let me say I am very impressed with the accuracy! I decided to check out a few random spots with the Land Matters United States Land Status map, and then for the sake of comparison I used a mapping program provided by our local county (basically the online version of what used to be those old-fashioned plat books). The results were basically identical, here's the comparison that I did:

    As I mentioned a few posts ago, I'm really impressed with Land Matters and I hope you folks continue to keep up the good work. I have a feeling that whenever the claims maps for South Dakota get published, my rear end is going to be glued to a chair in front of a computer monitor for days-on-end! I think that it's important to know where you're at and whose land you're on anytime you're out prospecting, whether you're a weekend hobbyist or you do it for a living.
