A major update to EOTopo 200K was released today - known as Release 2015. EOTopo 200K is available on either a micro SD card, or a USB exclusively from the ExplorOz online shop.

All customers with earlier editions of EOTopo 200K are able to upgrade to the latest version by using the promo code that will be sent individually by email. As per our Lifetime Upgrade Plan, customers can elect to purchase the latest version of EOTopo 200K at the discount provided and via the method offered at the time. Currently, the method offered to existing customers to obtain the upgrade to Release 2015 is to purchase a new copy on hard media (SD/USB) via the ExplorOz online shop (using the supplied promo code to obtain the discount), although we will release a download upgrade option by November 2014.

EOTopo Online

EOTopo online is now also showing Release 2015 mapping. As previously, EOTopo online is a very different product to EOTopo200K as it is a vector-mapping system that allows map zooming with a wide range of map scales. EOTopo online is a free use product and requires an internet connection. See the EOTopo online tab for more details.
