In honor of National GIS Day today (November 14, 2007), we’d like to talk a little bit about a new feature that we rolled out a few weeks ago when we added United States Geographical Survey (USGS) topographic map viewing capabilities to Thoos. You can now create running, cycling, hiking maps of your favorite trails […]
We have just added the ability to explore over 55,000 seamlessly stitched USGS Topographic Maps for your next adventure. Go to http://thoos.com/topo/ to check it out. View the entire United States, or enter a specific location and seamlessly pan and zoom to your desired location.
You can also flip between different views between any map on […]
What kind of social site would we be if we didn’t offer a way to keep up with your friends? Well, now you can do just that on Thoos. Under the ‘Friends’ tab in your user profile, you will now see (in the right column) all the recent goals, accomplishment, and fast times of anyone […]
That is an easy answer - beats the hell outta us.
Honestly, we are just letting this thing evolve in whatever direction the community takes it. Recently people have been posting a lot of goals and maps, but we still have a passion for creating a huge resource for outdoor athletes including free online guides, meeting […]
OK, so we have been pretty quiet over the past few months. And we have to admit, we have been enjoying summer - biking, running, fishing - but we have also been churning out a bunch of new features. Over the next few weeks, we will write separate articles highlighting many of the new features, […]
Wow, it has been one year since we thought of this whole crazy idea! Now, a year older and maybe a year wiser, where do we stand?
It was a big year for social networking, and it seemed like .coms were being snatched up for billions every day. Might have been us (but probably not) […]
Up until now, all search results in Thoos were displayed in a default “List View.” While the List View allows you to sort by different criteria, there was something lacking. Now you can also display those search results on an interactive Google map. Not sure what view you want? Just use the tabs at the […]
We are proud to announce that we have added a new feature to the site that will be a tremendous aid to fly fisherman and paddlers across the country. Our newest feature is a searchable map displaying real-time water data and river conditions across the entire United States.
We now offer (absolutely free) current water conditions […]
After much revision, we finally relaunched Thoos with a new look. Unless you visit often, you might not notice many of the changes, but if you have ever visited the site before I’m sure you will have noticed the new homepage. After much deliberation, we came up with a homepage design that we feel works […]
Alot of sites have features like this one, but the Thoos mapping tool has a few other features that allow you to link the map to your personal profile and other pages within the site. Take a look at the new tool …
There you can see other maps Thoos members have created, create your own […]
