With full maps of five areas, National Geographic Adirondack Park Explorer 3D lets you build custom maps for your next adventure. Software package contains both PC and Mac versions for full compatibility across platforms, making it easier than ever to plan, print and play! Includes fully interactive Trails Illustrated Maps(TM), complete with popular trails and additional travel and recreation information. Users can highlight any selected trail to get elevation profiles and GPS waypoints, and view the trail in 3-D; users can also draw their own trails. 3-D rendering technology creates virtual relief maps that you can ''fly through'' or view alongside 2-D maps, letting you preview your hike and views. Traveling tool zooms and scrolls the map in any direction; each map has four zoom levels, including a National Geographic Atlas level. Software can determine the exact latitude/longitude and elevation of any point on the map, a feature that helps easily create usable GPS waypoints. Enhanced 3-D digital shading emphasizes changes in elevation, making the maps easy to read and use; shading toggles on and off. Add routes, symbols and text to customize your map; attach note boxes, web links and photos to the objects you place on the map. Select the exact area you need and print a photo-quality custom map on any ink-jet or laser printer or plotter. Transfer your custom waypoint and route information directly to or from most handheld GPS units. Print waterproof trail maps on National Geographic Adventure Paper (sold separately) to take along on your trips. Powerful search function finds trails, camps and campgrounds, lakes and ponds, parks, cities and towns, USGS 7.5' quad names and much more. Export images in standard raster formats (JPG, GIF, and so on) for use in other applications.
