My favorite program for map display and navigation is OziExplorer. This program exists for many, many years now and is still alive and kickin’. I use it for displaying my tracks, setting up routes, communicating to my GPSses, exporting GPX, etc, etc. Though many map apps exist and of course Google maps, I appreciate the ‘technical approach’ of having many, many options. Even a version of OziExplorer exists for Android Phones. How cool is that! I use it on my Samsung phone to log my tracks when I forgot my GPS watch.
One of the issues is finding the right maps. This page contains maps I created for Oziexplorer, usually because I needed the maps during vacations for exploring the surroundings.
Curacao Werbata Map dating from 1906 is one of the most detailed maps of Curacao. Originally 18 map cards, scale 1:20.000. Collected in one OZFX4 Oziexplorer map of 30.000×26.105 pixels. I can spend ages exploring this map….

Ibiza & Formentera – OpenTopoMap
A marvelous initiative is OpenStreetMap (OSM). Based on this open source map a lot of overlays exist. My favorite topographical map is offered by OpenTopoMap. By downloading the tiles at zoomlevel 16 I created these OZFX4 maps of Ibiza (24576×20480) and Formentera (24576×12288). The maps can be used under CC-BY-SA license.
