I thought Jon C had done them...

In process, working through to next year from what I've heard. I like what I've seen of the updates, tho, and that's not having visited the terrain. He does a really nice job of producing "before" and "after" comparisons so you can really appreciate what an update does for your map.

That's what I assumed, Tori. There is ALOT of vegetation and rock detail that just seems impossible to map.

I didn't think there was enough time to field check, make changes on the map file and give to NTOA. Even if he did, NTOA may not have had time to transfer courses to the new map.

With a map 13 years old, a before and after comparison would be cool.

Hmmm. I wonder if I can convince him to share one of the comparisons as part of an article for OUSA? He's definitely got a few drawn up for NEOC and West Point maps, some of which I think may have been even older than 13 years old.
