Digital Topographic Maps: Alberta

There are several publishers who produce digital versions of federal government topographic maps of Alberta - on CD-ROM or DVD.

Each of these products contain maps for use on a PC. Please note: The maps will not appear on the screen of the GPS. However, with navigation software, it is possible to interface routes and waypoints between your computer and your GPS. There is no GPS interface available for SoftMap CD-ROMs. Other titles require additional navigation software.

Alberta Backroad GPS Maps is compatible with GARMIN GPS units.

These digital maps are raster versions of 1:50,000 scale federal topographic maps, covering regions across Canada, except where noted. "Raster" is a computer generated image that is a replica of the paper topographic map and is geo-referenced to display latitude and longitude at the position of your cursor. We do not sell vector maps (i.e., maps with layers of data).

Features of each product vary but all contain, at a minimum, basic map viewing features such as zoom. SoftMap includes more sophisticated tools such as search, measuring distance and printing.

All products are CD-ROMS, unless otherwise indicated.

Navigation Software (to interface with GPS)

Please Note: the maps or charts will not appear on the screen of your GPS. These software programs enable the user to interface routes and waypoints between the GPS and the PC.

There is no GPS interface available for SoftMap CD-ROMs. To interface Fugawi and Quo-Vadis CD-ROMs with a GPS Receiver requires additional navigational software. While features of individual products vary, in general navigation software offers the ability to do the following:
  • Upload and download waypoints, routes and tracks with most GPS receivers
  • Full navigational features including waypoints, routes, distance to go, course to steer, magnetic or true courses, speed, odometer, etc.
  • Current location and track shown on screen
Federal Publications offers Fugawi Global Navigator GPS Mapping Software.
