My skills are failing me, and I know some of you are better at finding things than me...

I'm looking for a map in Canada. Using the standards, the map is 040P05 Grand Bend.

I have found it with a scale of 1:50,000 however, I need it in a scale of 1:25,000.

Or to get more detailed yet. I need a map of about 1km squared around 43ยฐ22'21.2"N 81ยฐ32'22.6"W

Unfortunately I can't just print off a map from google because I need to be able to use it for orienteering, and as such need the grid lines.

So, I'm hoping that someone would be willing/able to do some searching to help find this for me.

Thank you in advance.

I've gotten them from the provincial government, mapping department. The DND have them as well as the printers to print them. Search and rescue maybe can direct you.
Skills are't failing buddy, you just need a vacay:) Grab a rod and go fishing.

Hey Max,

I appreciate the answer. ๐Ÿ˜„ I was looking on the Provincial Mapping site, I was able to get a detailed topo map of the area, but it doesn't have grid lines. And it looks like all the 1:25000 maps are of the urban centres and this area is to rural. ๐Ÿ˜•

That said, Fishing does sound like a plan. Too bad it's supposed to rain the rest of the week. ๐Ÿ˜„

So, I found a site that makes topo maps as detailed as I needed, without grid lines. So, I've printed one of those maps and have added my own lines. It isn't ideal, but it should work for our purposes. I think. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

I'm sure I used to know some mapping sites, but I've been totally drawing a blank since I first saw this yesterday. I'm making myself feel better by telling myself that I don't know whether they include Canada or grid lines.

Fish don't mind if it's raining. They're already wet, so....

Did you get your maps and how did you do with DND?

Nope. I have one that I made that I think will work... It is an oddball scale but at least if we are all using the same map it should work.

I wasn't able to get anything from the DND. I think that it has to do with all the red tape on their end.

Maybe a public or university library will have the Canadian equivalent of USGS maps?

Topozone was one of the websites I used to use, but I don't think it will work for you. I'll keep trying to remember the others.

Fish actually bite better in the rain in my experience. Heck with the map, the Northern Pike are biting!

Fishing is way better in the rain. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I donโ€™t know much about maps, but didnโ€™t Google Earth have an option to print areas and add the lng/last lines?

Help me with:

I looked at google earth, but I couldn't figure out how to add the lines. Likely it is something simple, yet it eluded me.

This is true. I think if I can find the time, I'm going to go fishing tomorrow.

I prefer maps that use the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS), which is MUCH easier to work with than degrees, minutes and seconds!

For sure!
I needed the map for this past weekend. I went camping with the cadets. Ultimately I used the map I drew the grid lines on for, and I made it use the same system as the MGRS.

And given the difficulty that the cadets had on the nav course I set up, I doubt that they could have used degrees and minutes...

When I was in the forces we did orientation with degrees. We were not allowed maps..lol.
The engineering department set this up.

Let's say you want to find a map of any spot on earth. Here's your "huckleberry": https://mappingsupport.com/p/gmap4.php?tilt=off...

Now, suppose you have a map with the military grid reference system (MGRS) and want to convert your coordinates to degrees, minutes and seconds--here's your online program to do that: http://legallandconverter.com/p50.html. It will also convert degrees, minutes and seconds into MGRS!

Try them--you'll like them!
