Have recently purchased some of the Hema Great Desert Tracks paper maps and am very disapointed with the tracks detail. We travelled thru the Cameron Crn, Innaminka, Arrabury, Haddon crn, Birdsville area last year so I know the SE Sheet map dont show many of the tracks thru there. We purchased The North East sheet to hoping it had the tracks around Rainbow Valley, to Hugh River, Maryvale but alas only the major tracks shown, the same with the NC Sheet only shows the main tracks from Curtain springs past Mt Conner to Mulga Park, and not the trakcs that go to Mt conner.

ie When we go to check out the area the Hema NC Sheet covers using the Dynamic Map using iMapPlot lots more tracks are shown. Looking Rainbow Valley area via the Dynamic Map it shows the tracks that lead from Rianbow Valley to Hugh river and onto Maryvale, but these tracks aren't on the actuall paper maps.

Are these tracks shown on the cd versions of the maps?
If not, is there a map cd that has maps with this detail of tracks on them?

The CD is the same as the paper maps. If you want more detail you should get the Natmap 1:250,000 raster mosaic maps on CD (advertised on this site). The HEMA are good for big picture stuff and tourist info, but if you need detail then you need a more detailed map. We found the same thing along the SA/NSW border from Broken Hill to Cameron Corner, esp on the SA side. There are some other areas where we have been caught out using the HEMA Maps, but I still think they are an excellent resource.

Thanks Bob seems raster mosaic maps on CD maybe the way to go, agree the HEMA maps are ok for the bigger overall picturre though.

Thanks Dusty, the image you post is about what the Dynamic Map using iMapPlot shows when you view map coverage area on this site.

Maybe management could indicate (if its not already stated somewhere and I'm missing it) that the map detail one sees via this tool may not be the detail one gets in the actual map, just the area covered is the same.
