Default Online maps and travel guides

If you know of or can recommend any online maps or travel guides post them here.

I'll start this with a few that I came across recently.

Here's a map collection:
http://www.sitesatlas.com/Maps/index.htm

and a large pdf from NationalAtlas.gov (right click save as.........)
http://nationalatlas.gov/printable/imag ... genref.pdf

NationalAtlas.gov has a map maker here:
http://nationalatlas.gov/natlas/Natlasstart.asp

Here's an interesting United States Climate Page

and

From their website:
Our mission is to catalog every Interstate highway within the Eisenhower Interstate System. We break down each route into an individual guide to include facts, figures, photographs, and basic information.

Here’s a great site to give you latitude / longitude co-ordinates to input in your GPS.

(right mouse click, open in new window - if you want to keep Class B Forum open)

http://geonames.usgs.gov/pls/gnispublic

You can get the coordinates for a particular beach in a County in Oregon for example.

Here’s another interesting link for mapping coordinates:

So many good references "out there" - I like to use MS S&T (on both my desktop and laptop) for trip planning. It's probably a matter of using whatever one is comfortable using.

Although the recent "high gas prices" haven't deterred me from traveling, knowing where to save a few bucks is certainly welcome. I used a "msn" site on my August cross-country trip (then again in October) - they've a new "beta" version here:

(http://autos.msn.com/everyday/gasstationsbeta.aspx )

For instance, instead of filling up in Flagstaff or Williams I continued on to Kingman - where gas was (relatively) inexpensive.

Thanks for the wealth of information, Nice references. Have been to a couple of site that list thing we would like to see, waterfalls, covered bridges, etc and list them by county. I am looking for maps showing roads, cities/towns, and counties so I can find and plot such sights. Really like Google maps and searched to find a way to overlay county lines with no success, so I though I'd throw this out here to find out what the wise forum users here know.

thanks

Do you have a GPS unit?
I got a Garmin nuvi not long after the Roadtrek, and then found out about a website
called www.POI-Factory.com which has a wealth of POI (points of interest) files which
can be uploaded to the GPS unit, and then selected from the "Where to?" screen when
traveling.
There are covered bridge, waterfalls, oddball tourist attractions, and a cacophony of
other POIs available for free. These files are compiled and (mostly) maintained by the
author who may have had an interest in the particular type of attraction.
I have covered bridges, offbeat attractions, and more than a few others loaded up in
my Garmin, as well as many files with truck stops, Walmarts, and other commercial
locations and useful travel related places.

Check it out. GPS rocks when you're traveling. I never thought I'd get one, but I saw one
on sale at Walmart a year ago, bought it, and am glad I did. Haven't looked back and travel
is a lot easier with it.

Sorry, I have no idea how to overlay county lines on Google Maps, so I can't be much help there.
