The atlas itself is decently put together, easy to read, and easy to use to find a particular location. I've found a few minor errors in my month using it, but it's nothing that any other atlas wouldn't have. It would be probably a four-star item but...

There is one major problem: the UTM eastings are given throughout the entire province relative to zone 12. Unfortunately, everything in Alberta west of Calgary (114 W) is zone 11. If you are sitting in Alberta anywhere west of 114W, and you measure a location in UTM on your GPS receiver, you should *correctly* get zone 11 coordinates, which are useless with this atlas.

Working across zone boundaries is always difficult in UTM. However, CCCMaps decided to generate an atlas as large as a province despite the zone boundary difficulties, and without properly addressing the zone boundary issues. The result is an atlas that looks nice without a messy zone change, is entirely useable for road-following navigation as long as you know where you are, but is useless for GPS-guided navigation when west of Calgary -- without any warning.

This atlas proudly displays a "GPS Compatible" label right on the front, but this is dangerously wrong.

The absence of updated rad names (i.e. Twp Rd 720b renamed to Old Smith Hwy) and many dirt road not named at all on the maps in Northern Alberta made the Alberta Back Roads Atlas close to useless except for guidance on major roads. That being said the atlas was useful in getting to an area and, most importantly, confirming GPS guidance directions.

Easy to read maps and also easy to find places we are travelling through, plus places to stay. Much better publication than MapArt.
