Companion forum thread to: How to Use Gaia GPS Slope Angle Overlays & Satellite Imagery to Plan Off-Trail Routes
In this video, I walk through how I use slope angle overlays and satellite imagery to plan off-trail mountaineering routes, focusing on Gaia GPS as the digital mapping software.
For the back country hunters out there using OnX, they have a slope angle layer too filed under the land access category.
CalTopo also has a slope angle overlay and satellite imagery. The web page version has hi-res Google Earth imagery.
