Source for maps

Does anyone know of a civilian source for military DMA/NIMA/NGIA maps?

usgs.gov has a bunch of maps. i don't know what DMA maps are but there's a crapload of other formats. seems like Penn State Universities cartography has a bunch of online maps too.

I thought Google had some pretty good mapping software, maybe they have what you are looking for.

Anyone else? I need to figure out how to get to the mall. I finding a lot of dead links in my search. Its kind of odd, like they were once available, but when the patriot act was enacted, the links were shut down and no one updated their sites.

I am not sure exactly what you are looking for -- to the mall? Like mentioned before, USGS has a ton of digital data available for download through Seamless and NHD.

I'm specifically looking for 7 color, 1:25,000, UTM, millitary sourced paper maps. USGS topo maps don't have the detail level that millitary maps do. They also use LAT/LONG rather than UTM. I learned to navigate using UTM. I'm clueless when it comes to LAT/LONG.

I did find this: www.nga.mil It is pretty cool.

I also found this:
[quote:USGS website]Maps in the 1:250,000-scale series are available for the entire United States. They were originated by the U.S. Army Map Service during the 1950's, but are now maintained by the USGS.[/quote]
These maps are available from the USGS. But they aren't the standard USGS 7.5 minute Quadrangle topo maps.


Edit: dammit, they're not the same maps... :

Although this won't help with your paper maps, http://seamless.usgs.gov/ has excellent quality downloadable-digital maps that I use to create custom topos on my GPS -- up to 10m resolution.

That NGA website has 1/4 meter resolution satellite imaging that you can import. From the home page, click on products and services. From there, click on the "Raster Roam" link.
