    Is there a legend for for France IGN Topo and Swiss Topo?  Also, what do the purple vs. black (sometimes dotted) lines mean on the zoomed in level?  Is thereby chance a way to differentiate a ski route from a hiking route?

    I've reached out to France IGN and SwissTopo for an official legend that I can add to this article, but in the meantime, here is a legend for France IGN that I found online (it's in French):

    The trails highlights in purple are La Grande Ranfonnée long-distance trails that have been approved by the FFRandonnée.

    Hi I was curious what some of these symbols on Gaia GPS maps are? Someone already identified some above but not these.

    In Ryanlabruzzo's screenshot, what does the boulder-like icon on the far right mean (over the 3800' topo index)?

    And why don't you have a legend for the Gaia Topo Map? I looked through the resources at the beginning of this article and still don't have the answers I'm looking for. The legend should really be part of the map viewer from the beginning. I shouldn't have to go finding KB articles to understand the map I'm reading.

    The boulder icon represents a boulder field and we are still working on the legend for Gaia Topo. Once finished, it will be added to this article.

    In the meantime, if you have any questions on markings on the map, please click “Submit a Request” above to contact support directly and someone will get back to you shortly.

    Please add a link to the NeoTreks legend on this page. I found it on a different Gaia GPS help page but it would be nice to have them all in one place. http://neotreks.com/maps/legend/

    Is there a game distribution overlay (quail, dove, etc.)? It's the only think onX seems to have when planning scouting areas that I can't find in my trail of gaia

    We are looking into adding more map sources which will include big game winter and summer ranges.

    https://www.sciencebase.gov/catalog/items?filter=browseType%3DOGC+WMS+Layer&q=quail

    which format would i download for instance from this page:

    Unfortunately, the scaled quail habitat data is in WMS and Gaia GPS only supports TMS or WTMS files. Sorry about that.

    However, you can download the USGS's scaled quail range as a shapefile here: https://www.sciencebase.gov/catalog/item/59f5e299e4b063d5d307df8d.

    Then, follow these steps to import it as a custom map source through Mapbox Studio.

    What are the green/white and yellow/white dashed lines on MVUM mostly in Colorado and Utah?

    Thanks for posting.

    The green/white and the yellow/white dashed roads on the MVUM overlay are single track trails open to motorcycles only.

    Does Gaia Maps plan to integrate keys into the maps? Having to keep a downloded copy of this thred is not the best way to use a key. Also, individual maps via National Geographic seem to have variances which makes map reading difficult. Do you have a time estimate for when keys will be integrated?

    We are discussing how to surface the map legends in the app, however, I don't have an ETA for this right now.

    I am trying to find a legend for the "Roads and Trails USFS" layer. I can only find information on the MVUM layer. I would like to know what the different colors represent.

    @garretseal
    The Roads & Trails (USFS) overlay is colored coded by the road/trail classification level and I have updated this article to include the legend for this map source. Sorry for the inconvenience.
