Georgia Trails trailhead maps

Since Summer, 2006, we have been adding Google maps to our web pages. These maps allow visitors to see continuously updated highway, road and street information directly on our pages.

Using Google Maps

The map can be used in many ways. If you want to zoom in on a location, press the + button in the upper left-hand corner. To zoom out, press the - button also in the upper left-hand corner. You can scroll the map up, down, right or left by clicking directly on the map and dragging it to the appropriate area or you can use the arrow keys, also in the upper left-hand corner.

There are three types of maps generally available to users, a street map, a satellite view and a hybrid that begins with the satellite photo and overlays it with the representation of the larger streets. Select the map you want in the upper right-hand corner of the display.

Waypoint Information

Our standard waypoint information is given in decimal notation, not degrees - minutes - seconds(DMS). Before 1974, DMS was the universal notation, but that year the United States began converting to decimal notation. Today, most schools teach longitude and latitude in decimal notation and not DMS. Most GPS systems accept both DMS and decimal locations.

All together now

Here is the map we created for the Allatoona Pass as a working example:
