The most important complementation of the second edition of map series “With a map in nature” is information about nature trails in each of regions. With more than 60 nature trails it is the most complete edition and is made together with experts from dodies.lv. Information about each trail consists of its description, detailed map, photos and information about trail lenght, time needed, pavement and level of its difficulty. You will find there information about signs, rest places and fire-places, accesssibility for bicycles, baby carriages and invalid carriages as well.
Each page of the edition is laminated, thus being more resistant to moisture and various forms of damage caused by active use, whereas the spiral binding allows the map to be used and pages turned conveniently. For greater user convenience, the map in the scale 1:100 000 (1 cm on the map = 1 km in nature), which is the most detailed map of Latvia available to a wide range of users, has been divided in four region editions – Kurzeme, Zemgale, Vidzeme, Latgale.
The intention of the new series editions is to be an accurate tool in terrain conditions (on a road, on a river, in a forest), helping its user to determine his/her location and plan the further route. The advantages in comparison to maps that are available in navigation devices, smartphones and tablets, are the transparency and detailing of the maps, as well as the chance to use them in any conditions and for any duration, regardless of a device’s battery life or internet accessibility.
We have especially thought about active tourism lovers – those, who travel by bicycles or boats. For the first time on maps with this kind of scale, we have given distances for all boating rivers of Latvia (for each river kilometre, so that it is easy to follow the already covered distance and plan the remaining route), as well as we have indicated most of the cycling routes that are marked with the standard symbols in nature. The map series was developed in cooperation with the JSC Latvijas valsts meži brand Mammadaba, maps include the most important Mammadaba sightseeing and recreation objects, as well as a description of those objects and services offered.
Take a map and dive into nature!
