This vector map covers 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.

Because the map is fully routable, it also can be used for turn-by-turn vehicle navigation, for example with a Garmin® Nüvi® GPS Devices or your Smartphone (depending which version you purchased). Navigate from south India to Lhasa/Tibet – seamless routing through the whole area has never been so easy before!

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.

The OSM-Database is covered by ODBL. The map consists of several separate parts. All parts are strictly seperated. One part are the map tiles containing map data from OpenStreetMap, the tiles containing contour lines based on data from Viewfinderpanoramas and HimalayanGPSMaps.

Both parts are strictly separated. The complete map is a “Collective Work” as defined by the CC license. The data of the map tiles are under CC-BY-SA license. The copyright is owned by the OpenStreetMap contributors, CC-BY-SA. The data for the SRTM tiles are in the public domain. The data from Viewfinderpanoramas are subject to the “Terms of use” on this site.

Wow, what a detail! And it loads very fast on my GPSMap60CSx.
