Mac GPS Pro, MacTopos CAN

James Associates has released MacTopos Canada 1.0, a collection of topographical maps for Canadian provinces, and has updated its GPS Software, MacGPS Pro 7.4. MacTopos Canada uses auto-georeferenced, compressed maps to use in conjunction with MacGPS Pro. The maps, which come on several DVDs, are from the National Resources Canada digital topography maps, allowing users to view them in 1:50K and 1:250K scale ratios, and include georeferenced index maps as well. Pricing for the maps vary between $20 and $50, depending on which province is purchased, and James Associates is currently offering them at an introductory discount.

As previously noted, MacTopos Canada requires MacGPS Pro, which can interface with a number of popular GPS units to provide geographical positioning information on a Mac computer. Version 7.4 introduces support for map stitching, allowing users to stitch together several adjacent Canadian Digital Raster Topo Maps together, and can locate Canadian topo maps by Quad Name. MacGPS Pro requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later, and is available for $50.
