|This map will soon be discontinued and boydsmaps.com will phase out all downloadable maps during 2021. They offer a poor experience on Garmin devices due to restrictions the company has placed on their “custom map” format which constrains them to only one zoom level of limited size. And Mobile Atlas Creator/Java installation is just too difficult and problematic. To use your Android phone or iPhone as a GPS with this map (and more), install the free boydsmaps web app, currently available in beta. Just go to mobile.boydsmaps.com on your phone to get started!|
A seamless collection of twenty nine South Jersey USGS 1:62,500 historic topographic maps from the turn of the century. Originally released in Google Earth format in 2015 as “Becks Map of the Pines”, these would have been the newest available topo maps when Henry Charlton Beck published his iconic “Forgotten Towns of Southern New Jersey” in 1936.
It is now offered as a universal format map that uses the free open source Mobile Atlas Creator program (for Windows, MacOS and Linux). Export any portion of the map to your favorite iOS and Android apps, desktop software or dedicated handheld GPS unit. An illustrated tutorial will guide you step by step.
