Latin America – Operational Navigation Chart Series Maps
While searching for maps to guide my way through Latin America I came across the website for The University of Texas at Austin Perry-Castañeda Library Map Collection. This site is a treasure trove of navigational information and one of the best map collections I found pertaining to Latin America is the Operational Navigation Chart Series. These are aeronautical charts at a scale of 1:1,000,000 showing topographic features by shaded relief and 1,000 foot contouring. The one issue I found is these maps were saved as JPEG images, but for maximum clarity and ease of working with I prefer PDF files, so I downloaded all of the maps, converted them to PDF and have made them available for download below. Even when zoomed to 800% the maps are still clear and usable on my iPod Touch.
