I recently had to download USGS Topo maps for another department. Back around 2010, when the maps were redone, I remember starting to download the quads that made up Wood County. For whatever reason I didn’t get very far. It could have been that downloading them was a long process.
Luckily times have changed! If you find yourself in need of USGS Topo maps I’d recommend using the USGS Google Maps Gallery. Search or zoom in to the area you want then click on the green marker at the center of the map quad. Then click on the “Download from USGS” link to start the download of the GeoPDF to your computer. Simple!
Get started by using the embedded map below or the link to the full screen USGS Google Maps Gallery.
