HimalayanTOPO Routable – Trekking, Sports and Navigation Map of whole Himalaya

 

himalayantopo_vector_coverage

Our vector maps for all major GPS receivers as well as for almost all Smartphones (Android, iOS, Windows) cover the whole Himalayan region. It’s a map with an amazing high level of detail, capable for trekking in remote areas as well as navigating by car or motorbike through the country or any sports activity like mountain biking, hiking or cross motor biking. Besides many topographical details this map includes a fully detailed street layer and all details of our street maps as well.

Because the map is fully routable, it also can be used for turn-by-turn vehicle navigation, for example with a Garmin® Nüvi® GPS-receiver. Navigate from south India to Lhasa/Tibet – seamless routing through the whole area wasn’t so easy before!

All our maps are compatible with Garmin®-GPS-Receivers, which can display maps in Garmin® vector format. This includes all “On the Road”-Receivers as well as all “On the Trail”-Mapping-Handhelds. The maps could be used directly with your GPS-Receiver and can of course also be viewed on your computer with one of your favourite GPS-Software like Mapsource® or Basecamp® (available from Garmin® free of charge).

On your computer you can plan routes and treks, look for sights or other waypoints (like lodges, campsites, etc.) you want to visit or you can even prepare and reconstruct self-recorded tracks. The digital topographical maps are compatible with many software products which can read maps in Garmin®’s vector format, including Mapsource® and Basecamp®, Sendmap®, Touratech QV® and many more (please check description of your software and test our trial maps before purchasing). Please note that routing may not be supported my third party software.

Furthermore, our maps are also compatible with almost all Smartphones and Tablets running one of the major operating systems like Android®, iOS® or Windows®. We support a lot of Apps like Navitel Navigator, OsmAnd and Locus. Depending on the App you prefer, also the Smartphone maps are fully routable and can be used for turn-by-turn vehicle navigation.

Data source:

 

The main source of our maps is the great OpenStreetMap project. This project maps the whole world and was started in 2004. Nowadays thousands of mappers work on this great project. In the past we created our own maps from sources like self recorded tracks and POIs, satelite images or available paper maps. In these days OpenStreetMap was nearly a blank map for the Himalaya region. Nowadays it is the best available map for the Himalaya region – it has an amazing high level of detail, even in the remote areas! We now included all of our own map data into the OpenStreetMap project and use OpenStreetMap as a basis for our own maps.

Furthermore, our maps include some additional data which isn’t available from openStreetMap. This includes a highly precise layer with digital contour lines (interval 20m) as well as DEM information for the whole region.
