Mapping Resources

Geospatial PDF Maps

Geospatial PDF’s are digital maps with georeferenced coordinates. They function without internet or cell connections. They can be used to track and mark locations using global positioning systems (GPS), plus record measurements and other data all using free software. Along with the georeferenced background image, they can include map feature layers with associated data.

View this poster to learn more about using geospatial PDF maps for range management and water quality. An abstract for the poster is accessible here. A gallery of maps for downloading ranch stewardship mapping resources is accessible here.
