Hi there,

Alf's CSR map in Googlemaps

Here's an interesting link for those who are interested in the planning a trip on the CSR.

The original CSR map calibrated into GoogleMaps.
You can view in Google Earth also by clicking on the relevant button.
Once in GE you can overlay the data with your own data.
In GE, you can also from the layers section, select the boundaries and the modern track track itself.

Remember to spend time away from your computer sometimes and breathe in the fresh air outside, it is good for you!!

Cheers
Alan

Hi Alan,
On my wall I have two large sheets which put together form a copy of Canning's original map which is beautifully drawn and annotated.
It was issued as a memento of the 150th Anniversary Celebrations of W.A.
There are copies of various letters, telegrams and photos.
My laminated maps were from Westprint. Each sheet is about 1000mm x 700mm.
Cheers, Graham.

Hi Graham,

Sounds like a great mapset. I remember the 150 celebrations as a young fella.

I have some walls maps too, stolen from Member Phil B when he wasn't looking. I underestimated their size though, and have to find a large enough wall for them where the dog won't get to them.

Good stuff

I'll be out there week after next.

I assume you can purchase a copy of this map in paper form (hopefully smaller than the ones you have - don't have a wall that big) ? Will have to investigate.

Cheers
Greg
I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874
