Types of Maps
Here you will see the terrain relief you are about to step on. The contour lines will give you an idea of the difficulty of the area. You'll find paths, shortcuts, national parks, lakes...
They usually contain the same type of information as topographic maps and also include urban and interurban information. Essential for using the FastTrack tool
Aerial photographs where you will quickly identify the elements of the landscape you are moving through: fields, lakes, refuges, roads, urban areas, buildings...
The maps we'll need
For the Garrotxa area we will use:
- Alpina Garrotxa (cost: €10): The most specialized map, it contains the most information. My favorites - Spain Topo Provinces Girona (cost: €9): Optional map. The Alpina map already covers the entire route, this one will serve as support in case of doubt - OSM Spain (cost: €4): Essential for using the FastTrack tool, which will greatly facilitate creating new sections in the track - ICC Catalonia Ortho (cost: €0): We will use it to know the terrain: if there are forests, possible refuges, or if our route will be all day in the sun - 3D Relief Spain (cost: €0): We will use it to accentuate the terrain relief on our map and to see a three-dimensional view of the place
If your budget is low, I recommend using free maps, you will find them in the 'Online Maps' section in the Land data tree. In that section you will find maps from all over the world that you can use in Land and in the TwoNav App, but not in a TwoNav GPS.
- Spain Topo Online (cost: €0) - ICC Catalonia Ortho Online (cost: €0)
