What is Dharma Maps?

A connected suite of locally powered real-time mapping tools for communities, user groups, land managers, governments, and adventurers

Dharma Maps Ecosystem

This platform is a game-change for TREAD. It Is a community-based approach, applicable to all recreation users. It enhances a great partnership between land managers and those who recreate in those spaces.

Mat Lyons

Director TREAD

The Kettles are a space of sparsely-visited magickal zones. From whitebark pine forest to dense inland temperate rainforest, I've encountered every animal from moose to goshawks to bears in those hills. Once I realized how out-of-date the mapping data in the area were, I knew Dharma Maps and I had to create a new map in order to attract new folks to the area.
