Since 2019, farmers, ranchers, land designers and developers have been turning to Verge Permaculture’s Contour Map Generator for quick, affordable and user-friendly maps that can be imported to Google Earth Pro for real-world understanding of a property.

But to design a permaculture farm that makes the most of every sunny slope, valley, and microclimate – or a solar-powered green-building development where water is an asset, not a threat – that takes a whole new level of topographic data...

The solution? The latest expansion of the Contour Map Generator: the Comprehensive Map Bundle!
