Boyd’s Map of the Pines / LIDAR Edition

Version 1.0, January 29, 2012

This map provides colorful and highly detailed shaded terrain for the southern half of New Jersey
(total of 87 USGS 24k quads) based on USGS National Elevation Dataset 1/9 arc second LIDAR
DEM. Full road, trail, water and placename data is also included. It is compatible with all Garmin mapping
GPS receivers as well as Garmin desktop software on both the Macintosh and Windows.

To make this map compatible with all Garmin devices and software, the original imagery was
converted to Garmin’s vector format at reduced resolution using special techniques and software
developed by the author. Although all of Southern New Jersey is covered, please note that LIDAR
data was only available for a portion of the area. You will notice a significant lack of detail outside the
LIDAR coverage.



Important Technical Note

Although this map has been tested on a variety of devices, the very high level of detail might cause
issues on some units. For this reason, please load this map on a memory card for testing if possible
instead of installing in internal memory. In the unlikely event that the map causes your GPS to
become unresponsive, you can simply remove the memory card to correct the problem. After
confirming that the map works properly on your device, it is suggested that it then be installed in
internal memory if available. You may notice a significant improvement in performance when the map
is installed in internal memory, due to the speed at which data can be accessed.
