The Westwater Books GPS waypoints have been obtained by various means including government data sources, detailed aerial photography/topo maps, and field checking. All waypoints are in WGS84 datum. Latitude/longitude are in decimal-degrees format.


These waypoints should only be used as a general guide and NOT for primary navigation. These waypoints are not adequate alone for navigating the canyons and rivers. They are intended as an adjunct to the printed Westwater Books River Guide Maps. Always carry a map and a compass with you for primary navigation.


Canyon walls can interfere with the GPS’s ability to communicate with satellites. They can cause the phenomenon known as multipath-where the satellite signals are reflected off surrounding walls and are delayed-introducing an error. Deep canyons may also limit direct view of satellites-limiting reception.


River channels change frequently, sometimes within a few hours. Rocks, sandbars, or other obstructions may suddenly appear or wash away. Due to possible changes subsequent to producing these waypoints, Westwater Books cannot be held responsible for inaccuracies or omissions in the waypoints.


Westwater Books shall not be held liable for improper or incorrect use of these waypoints. Westwater Books gives no warranty of any kind, expressed or implied, as to the accuracy, reliability, or completeness of these waypoints, or as to their fitness for a particular purpose. Downloading these waypoints signifies acceptance of the data “as is.” Westwater Books shall not be responsible for errors or omissions in the data.
