In 1993, Backroad Mapbooks started with two ambitious brothers. Since then, the company has grown to include an impressive collection of GIS experts, cartographers, IT technicians, salespeople, writers and graphic designers. Even with the increase in numbers, the team at Backroad Mapbooks has remained tight-knit and intimate, with weekly hikes, office potlucks and annual outdoor getaways. We all share a passion for the outdoors and for adventure. Our mission is to share this passion through our products.
