Introducing a new standard of mapmaking, Benchmark's brand new Nevada Road & Recreation Atlas offers a readily understood and clear picture of the road network in the state. Its regional scale (three miles to an inch or 1:200,000) suits the speed of travel by car, even on meandering back roads. The Nevada Road & Recreation Atlas uses a color coded "hierarchy" to effectively distinguish the main highways and through roads from backcountry and minor public and private roads.
Nevada has long been known as the wildest adventure state in the lower 48 and the new Nevada Road & Recreation Atlas will be the first map product to fully corral all of Nevada’s marvelous outdoor potential. Careful and thorough field checking and local research assure users the best Nevada outdoor experience possible. Recreation Maps have Hunting Unit boundaries over public lands tints and emphasize historic trails and points of interests. Special metro maps of Las Vegas and Reno and a dazzling new view of Lake Tahoe make this a complete atlas in the home, car or 4-wheel drive vehicle
Benchmark field checkers visited every county in Nevada, driving 1000's of miles, to verify the accuracy and the maps and information. They interviewed state and county road officials, Park and Forest Service rangers, State Park officials and other government sources to gather and verify field data. They crisscrossed Washington's roads searching out the kind of information travelers seek most.
