MapTools provides GPS users with the tools and knowledge to fully utilize geographic coordinates. MapTools produces grids, corner rulers, roamers, and rulers to assist with plotting or measuring positions on many different scales of maps. Tools for both UTM/MGRS and Latitude/Longitude coordinates are available.

If you are a new GPS user, you will want to visit the tutorial pages for an introduction to geographic coordinate systems.

If you are already an experienced map and GPS user, you have come to the right place to get professional quality plotting tools. MapTools' products are in daily use by many federal, state, and local land management agencies, along with military, law enforcement, and search and rescue teams around the world. You'll want to jump directly to the pages describing the tools.

In addition to the tools designed by MapTools, I sell a few other useful products that I've personally used and found to be useful additions to my navigation and mapping tool kit.

Over the last 20 years I've taught hundreds of people both traditional backcountry navigation skills and the latest techniques using GPS receivers and computerized mapping systems. Contact me if you're interested in arranging training for your group.

I am also teaching a wilderness navigation class for the Parks Management Dept. at West Valley College in Saratoga.
