Here is a link to the 2002 revised edition (current edition) of the map book. It can be down-loaded in different formats by individual pages. There are 94 pages in all and a few of them seems to be quite large in file size, page 39 especially, about 13 Mb. The PDF format is real nice and can be zoomed in tremendously. It starts to look quite good at 400%, but you can go much more.

I'm using Acrobat Reader 5.

enjoy, Ray

Well, they're okay for motorists, but they don't have any topo lines so you can estimate the drop per kilometer on a river. They don't show any river features like rapids or waterfalls, so they aren't as useful as a lot of maps. Even the old yellow-covered map booklet the NB government used to put out showed the odd waterfall and dirty back roads that were of interest to paddlers.

Still, you don't want maps to show everything, I guess. I don't mind discovering a few things myself.

Ther's always the danger that a map showing waterfalls and portage routes could have errors and lead a paddler into danger. The Ontario government once published a map that showed a waterfall on the Missinaibi river, and it put the portage trail on river right. Unfortunately, the actual trail was on river left (or was it vice-versa?).

I didn't hear how many boaters came to grief because of this error, but somehere there is a mapmaker who does not sleep well at night. Don't trust a map ... pull over and take a look yourself.

irving puts out an atlas for nb that has topo lines on (not available to the public :evil: ) still even with the topo lines their not close enough to plan your route. the thing i use the atlas for is that it gives me ideas of places i may want to go and i can research them later with topo maps.It is also very useful in finding possible put ins and take outs. plus i just love looking at maps and dreaming of possible trips

Post subject:  what happened to the atlas?

I tried to view it several times and only get the index page. Nothing else seems to exist any more. :(

Thanks for the new link, tgneal. That one seems fine. Hopefully the other one will be restored as it still takes you to the down-load page.
