Has anyone done any area mapping that includes adding GPS track (of existing trails) and overlay that on a scale topographic map or aerial photograph?

If so I was wondering about the software required and the proper order of combining the information.

I have a local school district that has a dandy school forest I would like to provide this data for.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This can easily be done with Garmin MapSource. It should be all you need. Simply load up the topographic mapset and pull saved tracks from your GPSr and it'll show up right on top. Scale and take screenshots as per normal after that.
