USGS using Google Maps for downloader to serve up free GeoPDF topos

The USGS, like many other commercial agencies, is using Google Maps in their apps... the latest use is in the very cool USGS Map downloader app. Users can explore USGS data using a simple gmaps UI. Then you can order or even better, download free USGS topos as GeoPDFs. I've explained in detail how you can use the Downloader app and what and how to work with GeoPDFs... see the tutorial here -  - anyone else using GeoPDFs?
