Anybody seen this map site before?
 
My first post here and a belated thank you to everyone for all the information provided. I'm not sure this site has been mentioned before but it is....GREAT!

You can browse around using google earth and then see the topo map of the area and in some cases air photos...and it's free :)

They have a good portion "Whited Out" down below the Canadian Border Peak and the 49th parallel.

There are a few GoogleMap mashups that offer the higher quality scans of paper topomaps where previously only the lower quality Toporama maps were available.

MyTopo.com seems to have been the first

http://www.mytopo.com/maps.cfm?lat=5...lon=-116.99208

and is used by Geocaching.com and http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/map?form=google

Nice sites! I've never seen them before, thank you.

MyTopo doesn't seem to be able to stitch the maps across UTM boundaries. Enter lat: 50 and lon: 120 and you'll see what I mean. I didn't try the touratel (Fugiwa) site because it got hung.
