About the site

Please note that this site is no longer under development and there will be no new maps or software updates. Very soon the site will shut down and be replaced with a new, powerful boydsmaps web app that is compatible with both phones and computers.

boydsmaps online provides access to high quality maps and imagery of Southern New Jersey and the Mid-Atlantic region. The site was launched in April 2019 and became publicly available on June 17, 2019. In April 2020 we moved to a cloud server which is faster and more reliable, with more memory and about four times the disk space of the original server. There are currently about 70 gigabytes of locally-stored maps and more will be added in the future. Users can also access many terabytes of additional imagery provided by the New Jersey Geographic Information Network, Pennsylvania Spatial Data Access, New York City DoITT, New York State GIS Clearinghouse, USGS, OpenStreetMap and more. The map viewer is a custom application based on the open source Leaflet platform.

boydsmaps online is owned and managed by Boyd Ostroff, a resident of the New Jersey Pine Barrens for almost 30 years. He currently serves as a moderator at MacRumors.com,  DVinfo.net, NJPineBarrens.com and GPSReview.net and holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Virginia and a Master of Fine Arts from Carnegie-Mellon University. He has held positions at Ocean County College, Point Park College, SUNY Oswego, Syracuse Opera, Indianapolis Opera and Opera Philadelphia. His opera designs have appeared in over 200 productions throughout the US and Canada. Boyd’s free maps of the region date back to 2008 and have been downloaded almost 50,000 times at gpsfiledepot.com
