Maptech, Amesbury, Mass., released MapServer Professional, a program designed to provide network access to many USGS topographic maps in a plug and play server. The network attached storage server is designed for quick installation. MapServer Pro consists of revised USGS topographic maps that include new roads, trails, land developments and boundaries. It also comes with software that allows users to view maps in 3-D, in seamless mode or with borders and legends. Users can print customized maps and make their own notes and bookmarks.
