Electronic OHV Mapping Applications And Websites Of Which NOHVCC Is Aware – Help Us Shape Our List!
As NOHVCC interacts with OHV enthusiasts and managers across the country the most common request we hear is for access to high-quality maps. Many trail managers, companies, and clubs have recognized this need and have created resources to attempt to meet demand. A common approach to providing maps and similar information is to create an application (app) or website through which enthusiasts can download, upload, or access electronic maps.
Electronic maps are easy to disperse, can be quickly updated, and often work with or without mobile data service. Many of these apps have been vital to enthusiasts during COVID-19 shutdowns as app managers can update closures and openings in real time. To help enthusiasts get back on the trail safely and when appropriate, we wanted to provide a list of mapping apps of which NOHVCC is aware. While NOHVCC staff uses, or has used, all the apps and websites listed below, we recommend that enthusiasts carry a paper map when they recreate. It may even be advisable to bring a backup GPS because crashes happen, devices break, batteries die, glitches occur, and signals get lost.
