From Dawn - I do not know if it has been mentioned before.

"For those of you who want Google Earth but still like the look and information
of a traditional map, check this out:

http://sigpac.mapa.es/fega/visor/

This is a service that's provided by the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture that
combines three levels of maps, depending on the scale of map that you're using.
The closer in you go, the greater the detail: at 1:800 scale, it's a detailed
version of the Army maps; at 1:400 scale, you get the satellite images.

Note, however, that the satellite version doesn't have images that are quite
as up-to-date as Google Earth - on this version, you can see the road bed for
the A12 highway linking Pamplona and Logroño, but not the acutal finished
highway. But it is free, it does have the Army maps incorporated in it (so
there's more practical information, such as the kinds of highways) and it seems
to be a little easier on older computers than Google Earth is.

Enjoy!

Best,
Dawn

Silver Oxide Camino de Santiago pendent
Camino de Santiago pendant that has a shell on the front, and "Camino de Santiago" engraved on the back. Comes with a black cord. Pendent is slightly larger than a 50 euro cent coin, about 25mm.
the mapbase is the rasterised version of the IGN maps. The IGN have quite a few projects for web-based GIS these days, free as part of the EU's INSPIRE directive adopted earlier this year.
(19) Experience in the Member States has shown that it is important, for the successful implementation of an infrastructure for spatial information, that a minimum number of services be made available to the public free of charge. Member States should therefore make available, as a minimum and free of charge, the services for discovering and, subject to certain specific conditions, viewing spatial data sets.
I've not tried it, but there is one for displaying their GIS in Google Earth

The IGN is part of the curiously named Ministerio de Fomento and nothing to do with the Army!
