If you want really, really detailed maps of small areas - SG2 or FMA
- contact your local orienteering club. These are the people who run
around in the woods (and other places) finding flags using clues and
really detailed maps.

They start with basic gov't maps, then go out and resurvey an area and
all the little details. Really great if you want a real (or just
realistic) setting for a small-unit action.

Even better, go out and run the orienteering course - you'll get actual
exercise and get to see what the terrain looks like for real before
re-doing it on tabletop!

The local club does events in lots of the local parks - urban & wild -
even odd places like the university campus...
