US Forest Service Offers Digital Maps

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Ever get lost in your favorite national forest? Now there is an app to help you find your way.

The U.S. Forest Service now offers a variety of maps for your Android devices and iPhone.

The forest service partnered with Avenza Systems to offer the Avenza PDF maps app.

While the app is free, you have to pay for some PDF maps.

The maps work in remote areas if you download the map before heading into the forest.

The digital maps are part the U.S. Department of Agriculture's effort to go paperless, at the request of President Obama.

The forest service says paper maps are still available online.

To download the app, just search Avenza PDF maps in your app store.
