Designed to be a tool to help riders and land managers save their favorite Forest Service trails, a new Instructional GPS Trail Mapping DVD provides OHV enthusiasts and professionals with detailed information on how to gather OHV route (trail) information using GPS technology, and how to provide that information to the United States Forest Service in a format that will be usable by the government in an upcoming route designation process.
The DVD is divided into eight chapters. Chapter topics include an introduction to the USFS Route Designation process, GPS hardware, preparing for your trip, collecting data, DNR Garmin, Garmin Mapsource, Fugawi Global Navigator and providing data to the agency.
Emphasis is placed on GPS tools and technology that are available to OHV enthusiasts, and software that can be used to manage, catalog and format GPS data.
The DVD was developed jointly by the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC), the Colorado Off-Highway Vehicle Coalition (COHVCO), and the Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC) with input from the USDA Forest Service (USFS), BlueRibbon Coalition, Americans for Responsible Recreational Access (ARRA), American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), Specilaty Vehicle Institute of America (SVIA) and the United Four-Wheel Drive Association (UFWDA).
The DVD is available through the NOHVCC. One sample DVD is free for the asking, but the NOHVCC has to charge shipping and handling for multiple orders. To order, call 800/348-6487 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
