High-resolution GeoPDF pair for field navigation at Aanchgaltsóow, nexus town (Auke Rec) and X’unáxi, camping place (Auke Cape). In apps such as Avenza, on your phone or tablet, you can see your GPS/cell-triangulation position on this image, and lay a track.

First choice below is a LiDAR-derived bare-earth hillshade with modeled streams and 10-foot contours. Other layers, exported from ArcMap, are hiking trails and named roads, and our wetland units from the CBJ wetland survey project. Thick blue lines are “subsheds,” also mapped during that project. Upper limits of the green tint at 32 feet show maximum tidal incursion at peak Little Ice Age, when X’unáxi was an island, connected by a tombolo spit except at high tide. Today’s Point Louisa (all green in this model) was completely overwashed on high tides.

The second choice is a 2013 orthophoto with overlain streams and trails. More information on geoPDFs and use of Avenza is at Media types>Maps&geoPDFs., and at Tools>Field navigation.
