Great job on your maps and gps layers.

FYI, I notice the Tiger Mountain Map, http://switchbacks.com/maps/PDFs/Tiger_Mountain.pdf, list the UTM Zone at 10N. National Geo Topo! list it as 10T.

One question. Why don't you print UTM marks on the topo maps? As you know they would be a great help if you had the paper maps but didn't have the gps maps loaded.

Thanks, JoeB

In the new template I'm working on, I do include a UTM grid on the map.  You can see an early example at http://www.switchbacks.com/maps/PDFs/Mailbox_Peak.pdf.

10N is correct, as is 10T.  T is the latitudinal zone, which is not always needed or used.  In that case, you'll often see N or S for north latitude or south latitude.
