Whether a tourist or a local, figuring out where to go is something that has to be resolved before starting any outdoor adventure. Use maps to bring people to your site whenever they are trying to to answer this quintessential question. The Natural Atlas topo can showcase the vast number of nearby recreational opportunities (hiking trails, boat ramps, fishing accesses, etc) to your audience better than anything else can. If the audience has a good experience using the map on your website they are more likely to come back and spend more time there. Have a standalone map page on your site, or supplement your blog posts, guides, or other content.
If you want to make your audience want to get out on a particular hike, raft trip, or trail ride, use the Natural Atlas Map Widget to show the trip and showcase all of the highlights along the way. Showing a specific trip on a map is visual, shareable, and provides useful context to your audience.

Natural Atlas is an amalgamation of official data from scores of land managers across the United States. That’s not where it ends – that’s where the work begins. Official information is often riddled with flaws and shortcomings. We unite it all into a common format, fix the inaccuracies, put the work into connecting it all, and add missing features. We use multiple methods to verify and ensure accuracy. Much of our data is produced in-house, as official data is non-existent in many areas. We’ve built out a complete custom toolset to enable us to rapidly expand and maintain the map.
Whether you’re on BLM land, in a National Forest, or in a local open space preserve – we want a map that is reliable and consistent across the nation.
We care about the finest details – from showing the explosion craters at the bottom of Yellowstone Lake to moorage buoys in the San Juan Islands. Our goal is to build the premier browseable online topo map of the outdoors.
