Did you find an error or ommission?

Our Team was started by Ryan Dalton, a professional cartographer living in Whitefish, MT.  He, his wife Jane, and their faithful puppy Driggs, spend most of their weekends outdoors camping, fishing, hiking, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, visiting hot springs, or Driggs' favorite, pheasant hunting.

Ryan graduated from Oregon State University with a degree in Geography, and has been working professionally with spatial (GIS) data for over 20 years.  But it wasn't until he got his puppy, Driggs (an American Brittany, bred for "pointing" at upland game birds) that he started making hunting maps for personal use.  The first time Ryan went bird hunting (ever... in his life!), he realized he wanted a map that was easy-to-use, worked offline (no cell service), and GPS-enabled.  Most importantly, he wanted a map with more detail that was focused just on the area(s) he was going hunting.  That way he could not only see where he was, but also where he wanted to go next.

Fortunately, Montana has a great history of sharing publicly available geographic data (GIS).  Being familiar with most of the sources of data throughout the state, Ryan set off on a quest to locate the best available sources of upland bird hunting map data.  After compiling all of the map features into one system, it was time to start designing the map.

Ryan's goal was to keep as many of the recognizable features people expect to see on a map, but break some of the rules and only include the most relevant map features in order to make OffTheGridMaps clean, crisp, and highly readable.  When friends started asking for maps of areas they were traveling to next, Ryan realized there wasn't an easy way for people to get maps that were zoomed in to just the locations and showed and recreational activities that were important to them.  And so began
