Hi All, Just wondering if anyone knows where to purchase the Rooftop's maps in a digital form? Either on DVD or an online download? If anyone has them and wants to sell them second hand, that would be great. Cheers. Luke

Apparently they are no longer available. I had to dig a hard drive out of my old dead laptop to retrieve copies of those maps as I was unable to locate my CD after moving from Darwin to QLD. Good luck in your hunt for a copy.

Regrettably they haven't been available in digital form for 5 or more years. The guy ( Robin Rishworth?) said he has no intention of releasing digital maps until he has them all up to date. Given he does about 1map update every 2 years don't hold your breath.

I was lucky enough to buy lots in digital form before they disappeared. Since then I order an unfolded map from my local map shop ( Melbourne Map Center) then get it scanned to a tiff file at a commercial scanner shop ( about $12). Then I georeference it.

Long winded but it works.

They are great maps

The word I got was that he got sick of people ripping the dig maps off.
