National Geographic TOPO! Minnesota & Iowa Topographic Map Software for PC and Mac
TOPO! Minnesota & Iowa
Some key features of the National Geographic TOPO! Minnesota & Iowa mapping software are provided below. Further details can be found on the National Geographic TOPO! State product page.
3D Views & Fly-throughs.
The new version of TOPO! Minnesota & Iowa incorporates the updated 3D Views and Fly-throughs technology that was part of an add-on Expansion Pack for the previous generation product. The animated fly-through feature enables you to fly along a trail you have drawn as it winds and climbs to your destination. Intuitive navigation tools make it easy to see hidden valleys, or stand on top of a mountain and get a bird’s eye view of what your surroundings “look” like. You can choose any spot on the map or trail, then zoom and pan to see the view.  Resizable split screens make it easy to expand any screen for better viewing.
Other TOPO! Minnesota & Iowa Mapping Software Features:
Sample Streets On/Off
  • Use the search function to find trails, camps and campgrounds, lakes and ponds, parks, cities and towns, USGS 7.5' quad names, and many more features.
  • Easily lay a road network on the 1:24,000 and 1:100,000 scale Minnesota and Iowa topographic maps. And with regular updates–from superhighways to forest roads–you’ll have the confidence to find your destination.
  • Add map border information to printouts, including UTM or latitude/longitude grids, scale bars, north arrows, and magnetic declination.
  • Export customized Minnesota and Iowa maps in a number of different raster file formats (.gif, .jpg, etc.) for use in other applications.
  • Toggle between NAD27 and WGS84 datums in UTM or latitude/longitude.
Visualize Elevation Gain with Elevation Profiling.
Simply trace a route anywhere on a map in TOPO! Minnesota & Iowa, and the software will generate an elevation profile showing distance and all the ups and downs. Now you can get a true sense of the terrain before heading out.
