Thanks Desert Rat, I was just talking to my little brother about this last night.
I didn't know it was up already or I would have printed it out for him.
You are definitely on the ball.

It is good that they do this--it is very informative-Thanx.
What I'd like to see them do is put the water catchment book on line.

What I'd like to see them do is make the water catchment book useable! You know, like with "real" maps, GPS coordinates, anything.

Mapping gets to be a real pain. FS & BLM Maps use Range & Township--with a little hint of Lat-Long & UTM thrown in. GPS is Lat-Long or UTM period. It is a real pain out in the field to calculate your GPS location on the map. I have the UTM reader and Topo Companion. They work fine at a desk--not to well in in the field. If you can find FS "K" tags--that helps--or witness trees-if you are lucky. Locating Benchmarks works good too.
Would be nice if they all got on the same page.

I have National Geographic Topo for Arizona. When I print maps, I usually print grid lines, which makes plotting a lat/lon location a piece of cake. Or I just punch the coords into the software or into my GPS receiver...

Anything would be better than those hand-drawn maps in the water book!

Totally agree--and they get $35 or $40 bucks for it. I manage to navigate them though.
Somebody that has one ought to scan it into their computer and then send out the appropriate pages to forum members on request--A nominal charge would be OK. AZGFD would probably get you on a copyright violation if you charged though.
