I have little knowlege in this area. Should I buy the Raster Mapsheets or Mosaics. I have read about the difference but it doesnt really make any sense to me.

Buy the NatMap 2 disk Digital maps for OziExplorer.
They include all the 1:250,000 digital maps of Astralia.
Works great in moving map with OziExplorer
You can purchase them from this website (shop)

Raster Mapsheets gives you about 518 maps which you can load individually in Oziexplorer.....Raster Mosaic gives you one complete map for all of Australia and you can scroll all of the map and you do not have to load individual maps. Both are Maps systems are 1:250,000Willem

Hi Willem,

I am still confused as to which format to buy. Does Oziexplorer automatically locate the correct map if you travel from one to another?

Would the single map system keep more ram free within the computer to allocate to the main program?

I read something about the accuracy of the Mosaic was not the same as the multi map version..

I just don't know.

Maybe if I got one of these I wouldn't need to worry about all of this as it is already fitted.

I am but a novice with Oziexplorer and still learning the ropes. I started off with Mapsheets but found loading the next map difficult and a lot of sdtuffing around. Now I have acquired Mosaic and it is brilliant.

How accurate do you need to be out in the bush? 1 metre, 5 metres, 50 metres or more?

Not sure on what size the maps are in MB.

Hmmmm...liked that Mog. No doubt one would not get much change out of $500,000......but you could still get lost driving it and I am sure you could still get it bogged.

with the raster maps ozi will locate the correct maps when you cross the boundary.

The Mosiac maps only use enough memory for the screen display not the whole of Aust. I have no direct comparasion between the two though.

The Mosiac map can be a bit inaccurate when measuring distance on the map. When used in conjunction with the gps to display position it is accurate.

I currently use the raster maps but will be purchasing the mosaics soon because as Willem says it cuts out the shuffling around.

Thankyou Willem and Ray.
How accurate do I need to be ? Dunno within a good stones throw I guess or probably a bit more will be ok too. I wil have another read about both products tomorrow when I am alittle fresher.( have had a few rums tonight...).

As for the Mog' I think you could easily double or trile your estimahe Willem...the specifications took me 25 mins to read and I didn't understand what half ofthe stuff does.

Thanks again guys


might go Barra hunting tomorrow..

I found the sheets very irritating - sometimes you'd be placed on the white margin around the map, or in the legend. The Mosaic is brilliant. and much easier to move across regions covered by many maps. Also included in the Mosaic package is the satellite image mosaic. I find this really interesting, and excellent for locating interesting looking landforms to explore.Bob

Thanks Bob,

I think I will take notice of the experiences you guys have had and give the Mosaics a go.

Thanks again
