It's a product call hunt-r-vue from a company called oakvue

It looks pretty neat but is it any more useful than a topo map and printed arial photo?

Is it even worth the price just to get the map and photos from one source...

here's their website: http://www.oakvue.com/

but I would have a few questions to ask before I ordered. The website says the maps and images use the same boundaries as the standard topo maps, the property that I hunt deer on (roughly 6 sections) is split right down the middle of the main valley by the boundary on standard maps. This being the case, I assume that I would have to order a second set which would make it way too expensive.
The topo map of the property that I now use, was made from 2 photocopies of the adjoining maps cropped off, taped together, copied onto one sheet, zoomed in and then about a 1/2 dozen copies made, for a total of about $2 and an hours worth of time in the university geography library. All my buddies that hunt on the place have a copy, or even a copy of a copy, and we have one copy blown way up, and laminated which is hung on the wall at camp, to which everyone adds some information each year.

I use a software package put out by DeLorme called TOPO USA.I'm very happy with it. As a bonus it is compatible with my GPS. They have a website at http://www.delorme.com
