I am currently a free user. The most useful layer that I have found for mapping in Sonora is TF Outdoors. However, it has contours at 10 meters. 2 meter contour lines would be better for my use.

1) Is there a way to get more granular contour lines for Mexico with CalTopo?

2) Do any of the upgrades like PRO or OFFLINE provide extra details for Mexico?

I think that 1 meter contour intervals are available for Mexico. A friend uses Global Mapper and it does.

I like CalTopo. If I continue, I plan to buy a subscription. Which one for Mexico?

    At the moment there is no in-house data for Mexico, TF outdoors is the only option and upgrading won't change that. Hoping that will change by summer though, working on a scanned INEGI map layer elevation data / contours for MapBuilder would follow that. Probably not at 1 meter resolution though.

    Thank you. I look forward to some data upgrades for Mexico sometime in the future.
    I now have a basic subscription.
