Karttakeskus’ Water touring maps are a completely new type of map series. The pre-folded maps made of waterproof and rip-proof material can fit into a small space on the boat, but when opened, they cover a wide area. In this way, the water touring map is e.g. an excellent planning tool alongside electronic navigation solutions, offering a wide overview for e.g. route planning. On the other hand, the waterproof material makes the map easy to handle in e.g. an open boat or sailing boat.
