I want to use my computer to create a track with waypoints and create a map that can be transported from the computer to a
printed digital map from my printer. I want to create tracks for Arizona 7 1/2 topo maps.

    Hi Bob,

    In CalTopo, tracks are known as lines and waypoints are known as markers. You can create them by using the "add object" menu on the left hand side of the map viewer.

    Please see our getting started article for information on saving and printing your map, and the various objects articles for help with drawing lines and creating markers.
