The MT Topo + Forest Cover 2017 basemap contains our topo, road, and point of interest data combined with areas of forest cover. Updates for 2017 include updated forest cover data and new fire polygons from the summer/fall of 2016. We’ve broken forest cover into two types, 15-50% canopy cover (shows as light green) and 50-99% canopy cover (shows as a darker green). But we didn’t stop there! We’ve added special coloration for forest areas within USGS Geomac fire polygons. Drop a map pin within a fire polygon and you’ll see the year it burned. Forage in burned ares are magnets for elk and deer and this map is great info for determining habitat and succession stage in your hunting areas!
This mapset can be purchased separately or can be bundled with other maps in our Hunting & Fishing Combo map package.
