SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) - Visitors to the Bighorn National Forest may now download forest maps to their mobile devices.
The maps may be downloaded to mobile devices including cellular telephones that have the capacity to access the global positioning system.
Once the maps are installed on the user's mobile device, it shows the user's location appearing as a blue dot.
The Bighorn National Forest visitor map can be downloaded for $4.99 each for either the north half or the south half of the forest.
The visitor map provides information about services, campgrounds, picnic areas, and other attractions in the national forest. It also includes descriptions of travel restrictions, facilities and points of interest.
To download the maps, Avenza’s free PDF Maps Mobile App is needed and is available online at www.pdf-maps.com, Google Play, and iTunes.
More information about georeferenced maps can be found on the Maps and Publications page on the Bighorn National Forest’s website at www.fs.usda.gov/bighorn/.
