USFS Introduces New Interactive Visitor Maps

The U.S. Forest Service announced yesterday that they have launched a new online interactive map tool on their website.

Forest visitors can now search for a recreation site or a forest, zoom in on the local map, and view a variety of recreation information for that site. The maps can also be printed (via Settings).

The maps are updated every 5 minutes with site-specific weather watches and warnings from the National Weather Service. And if your Twitter accounts are geo-located, you can see real-time photos, content, and links from your Twitter feed (you must geo-tag for this to work). Wildfire activity across the country is also displayed.

You can visit for an online view of Forest Service roads, trails, and recreation areas throughout the USA.
