Create a CalTopo Store, where CalTopo and also 3rd parties/CalTopo partners/vendors can sell and/or freely provide maps, layers, routes, labeled waypoints, etc. , Ideally with a way to protect the content and discourage unauthorized copying/theft of intellectual property.

Similarish to the Avenza Map Store https://www.avenzamaps.com/maps/search.html and the Rakkup Guidebooks "store" https://rakkup.com/guidebooks/ .

Content in a CalTopo store might include things similiarish to:
https://backcountryskimaps.com/product/digital-maps/

https://rakkup.com/guidebooks/backcountry-skiing-california-eastern-sierra/

International Maps (ex. From pixmap)

    Hi Tom,
    This is not something we are going to pursue. We support custom layers (Add - Custom Source), custom overlay images (Add - Geospatial Image), and import/export in almost all formats.

    Best,
    Ben
