  • Mapping apps – Some rural areas where you find the best scenery and experiences don’t have cell phone reception, which is good or bad depending on your needs. If you’re trying to hike in one of these areas, a National Park perhaps, downloading maps ahead of time can be useful. For example, Avenza Maps app (iOS/Android) lets you store the map of choice on your device via the app and your phone’s GPS will work with the app to reference your location on the downloaded map even when cell reception is unavailable. It’s perfect for exploring your national parks without getting lost because you can even drop pins at waypoints such as where you parked your car or a trail head. You can also search available maps in categories such as historical, hunting and fishing, parks, forests and grasslands, recreation, tourist, and more.

  • Know where you are, where you’re going, and how you plan to get there. You don’t know the true meaning of the word “lost” until you’re in the middle of the woods, with no streets, no houses, no familiar landmarks to give you a clue about where you are. Being lost is not an adventure; it’s frightening and dangerous. Plan your ride well before setting out. If you are a beginner, stick to marked trails in a local park or greenway. Use a map to chart your progress at frequent intervals throughout the ride. Don’t have a map handy? Check out Avenza PDF Maps (www.avenza.com/pdf-maps), a cool app for Apple and Android devices. It provides geospatial maps, with the ability to add place marks along the way and track your progress via the smartphone’s built-in GPS.

The applications are wide including figuring out areas most at-risk for burns, identifying roads that could be used to hold a fire, or locating the safest places for a firefighter to stop a blaze or start a backburn. Every fire unit uses GIS in their work and many breakthroughs in GIS technology come from the fire community. Many of my students are involved in fire programs or managing fire and they all use Avenza to quickly upload current data from the ground for fire applications.
