Re: Purple Lizard Maps
Yes, much better. These are superb maps, with much more detail than the DCNR state forest public use maps.
The DCNR state forest maps are at a scale of 1:127,000, which means that 1 inch = 2 miles.
The Purple Lizard Rothrock SF map is at a scale of 1:39,138, which means 1.625 inch = 1 mile.
So the scale is 3.25 times larger. There is simply much more room to show detail on the map.
In addition to the scale, the cartographer is one of the best in the US/world. He was the person who designed the original Trails Illustrated maps.
So, the accuracy and design of these maps is excellent.
The maps are not paper, but some kind of tough, long lasting material.
I have the Purple Lizard Rothrock SF map, it's great. The Bald Eagle SF map is also available.
