Using OnTimeZone.com data in Streets & Trips or MapPoint
OTZ data is offered in seve formats at the "Files/Downloads" link on the navigation bar to the left.
There are five ways to use this data in Streets & Trips or MapPoint, each with advantages and disadvantages.
Here are some general traits of the various options:
* GPX Import not available for Streets & Trips versions earlier than v2010.
Copy/Paste color coded borders into an existing S&T file:
Copy/Paste single color borders into an existing S&T file:
Import our S&T GPX file into existing S&T file:
A note about viewing the borders:
At wider zoom ranges the time zone lines may appear to be significantly off from borders which they are supposed to follow. This is because when zoomed out S&T and MP sometimes uses approximated border data. If you zoom in to the 90 mile range or tighter, most such discrepancies disappear and you will find the time zone lines accurately track the borders. On rare occasions you may need to zoom in as tight as 18 miles to show border data with sufficient accuracy. If you are zoomed into the 18 mile range or tighter and see a discrepancy, please drop me a note to let me know.

DO NOT ASSUME ONTIME ZONE BORDERS REFLECT POLITICAL BOUNDARIES. Some political boundaries are complex, with conflicting sources of data and possible ongoing disputes. This is especially true of many Native American lands. OTZ boundaries seek only to show the likely time at a given location, not to indicate anything about the local legal or political authority. Travelers should use other resources to remain mindful of their location when near international boundaries or those of soverign entities, especially those which may be poorly marked or follow geographic features.
