    Free USGS maps

    Got this link as an ad on my Facebook feed. Wanted to make sure I did not lose it. I have not played with it much but it looks interesting.

    Land Matters has offered downloads of all the USGS topo maps (more than 275,000 maps) for nearly a year now. Not just the 7.5k or current maps - all of the topo maps. Most importantly to researchers the historical topos are available too.

    It's another Land Matters interactive map that just requires a click on the map while in information mode to get links to download any and all maps in your area of interest. Give it a try I think you will find it is a much more useful tool for prospecting.

    Yep. lol I had just went to check and these are the same I had used with LandMatters. I thought they were different.

    Just spent 30 minutes on MyLandMatters playing and it is much easier than that I posted above.
