ok this is my first post, forgive me if I have the wrong group. yet i think
i have a very basic question for you civil drafters.... A while back i
worked with a civil engineer company that had a lot of topo maps on Autocad
already drawn in on layers and such... all I have right now is a topo tif
which is very different. I need to be able to work with the topo maps as we
move land around and draw new water run off maps. I didnt play around them
much when I saw them for the first time. Can anyone out there tell me wher
you get these maps, what they are called and can you get them in different
UTM & NAD formats like you can topos. I have an aerial in UTMs that I would
like to use with the topo layer if I could. I would be very happy to get
any info that could help me find the topos that I need. I work with Autodesk
Map 2005.

Sharon,
Assuming you are talking about the USGS Quad sheet maps, those are available
through many sources. The place we get them from is TopoDepot
(http://www.topodepot.com/). They offer vectorized versions of Quadsheets in
a range of formats including DWG, DXF, and shapefiles. They will also place
them in various coordinate systems and units.

thanks for the help. I will check it out now to see if that what I am
looking for. It sounds right. I just need to see a picture of one
to make sure.
