- Looking for wilderness area maps? Look no further. While you can get some really good ones at places like CustomCorrectMaps.com or Green Trail maps, I found this nifty MapFinder program from DDS to use with GoogleEarth that will help you make your own custom USGS topo maps. Check it out, it’s really cool.
