I've got some but they are quite old, if you're looking for detailed vic maps then the Spatial ones are pretty good

Phil,

They used to have some - I have some on my storage but looking at our shop appears they may not. I will get Adele to have a look into this or at least she will know the answer?

Hi Phil,

In reference to David's response, Rooftop used to sell their individual maps on CD, but they haven't been available for several years.

Thanks for the resposes. A shame as I have heard them mentioned quite a bit. May buy and scan a set for the car OziCE. We shall see.

Sorry for the slow response. Been watching the cricket.

I was lucky enough to get most of the maps on digital about 6 years ago just before they stopped selling them in digital form. Since then I buy them in rolled form and get them scanned at a printing shop and I geo reference them Costs about $15 per scan.

I spoke to Rooftop about 4 years ago, and the guy said h has no intention of releasing them in digital form again until he updates them all - in about 10 years at best..

Yep.
As an example, one ground-breaking Australian science ebook was estimated by the authors to have been pirated 80,000 times.
Their next book was issued in hard copy only.
