Toronto, Ontario (August 12, 2014) -- Avenza Systems Inc. has partnered with The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation to give its 60 million State Park visitors free mobile access to more than 50 State Park trail maps featuring more than 1,500 miles of trails. The digital PDF maps are available to download free at www.pdf-maps.com/get-maps.

Park visitors with GPS-enabled devices are now able to locate themselves on New York State Parks maps as they navigate the trails. The maps provide a great option for visitors planning a hike in remote parks, where wireless service is not always available and when streaming map providers lack the detailed content. Visitors can download maps through the Avenza PDF Maps in-app map store on their mobile device and save it on their device. At the park, visitors can open the map and take advantage of various interactive features such as showing location, dropping waypoints/pinpoints on points-of-interest, attaching images and notes, and tracking routes, distance and elevation – all while offline.

“While digital maps in general are pervasive, functional map data for off-line navigating through non-urban environments is limited -- especially for outdoor enthusiasts visiting State Parks, so we’re excited to feature interactive digital maps that are both resourceful and simple to use especially for those new to the area,” said Ted Florence, president of Avenza Systems, Inc. “Avenza’s PDF Maps app provides constant access to geographic locations such as ranger stations, trail heads or picnic areas without the risk of losing reception due to cell tower proximity – making it the ultimate outdoor accessory for novice or expert hikers trekking through various trails that the State Park has to offer.”

Park visitors interested in the maps will need to download Avenza’s PDF Maps app to their Apple iOS and Android mobile devices and search for the New York State Park map of their choice. Avenza’s app includes both an app for consumers to use, discover and purchase maps directly from their devices as well as an in-app store to facilitate the transaction and delivery of maps.
