  2. Poll: Re: Landscapers, please share wisdom about scouting

  6. Poll: Re: Landscapers, please share wisdom about scouting

    Sometimes I use what I presume is the U.S. equivalent, the USGS quadrangle ("Quad") series. These are quite useful, 7.5 minute topographic maps whose scale is 1:24,000 (that is, 1 inch = 2,000 feet)....
