The Outdoor World
Always following the most beautiful trails
The KOMPASS programme includes around 1000 titles, of which 700 are hiking, cycling and ski tour maps. The approximately 500 published hiking maps cover the walking areas of Austria, South Tyrol, Germany, and the Balearic and Canary Islands. Hiking regions in other parts of Italy, the Swiss Alps, the Czech Republic and Slovakia are partially covered. Most maps are available on the scales of 1:25.000 or 1:50.000 and include highlighted hiking trails and additional tourist information. The new generation of hiking maps is equipped with coordinates for GPS navigation. Since mid-2011 more and more weather and tear resistant maps have been printed.
The KOMPASS selection also includes digital mapping, for which the complete Austria range, some hiking areas in Germany, South Tyrol, the Canary Islands, the Balearics as well as Malta and Elba have been published. The digital maps can be used on PDAs and mobile phones with Java technology for outdoor navigation. The map material is on a scale of 1:50.000 and can be zoomed in to 1:10.000.
Hiking guides by DuMont present the most beautiful destinations in Europe. Those guides are easy to carry in pocket format containing about 35 different tours. Detailed maps and altitude profiles support you as well as tips for many places of interest.
