Any recommendations for e-maps to use with OziExplorer on the Canning Stock Route?

I have Natmap 1:250K but would like 1:100k or even better if I can get it.

Can anyone help out or make a recommendation?

Thanks,

Dave

Seen the ones linked in pointplace yet? As a member you can download it for free (if you have credits). The road plot is accurate to 1:10,000 however the current output map is limitted to handle email delivery of the result. I can produce a 1:10K or 1:100K result however I have not yet worked out the best way to break up the deliverable sections. The PointPlace map is fully geo-referenced and you can also download the 60 odd waypoints for every well and POI from the trip. Have a look at PointPlace and the Canning Stick Route Trek it shows a verion of the map, links to Point Place and also a link to mapping zoom. Also the PlotSwap specific maps for the Canning are here.

Hi Geocacher,

Scan the version that came with National Geographic( I think). assign appropriate grid references to about 4 points and import it into Oziexplorer. Then you have lots of detail. The moving map facility can be set to automatically select the highest detail when you get to it. Great facility.
Cheers

No worries Marty.

I should have included a medical warning. This sport is highly addictive!

It will however take you to places you would never have gone otherwise and show you things you didn't know were there in areas you may have been to many many times.

Have fun. The whole family can do this one together and it goes hand in hand with 4wding and owning a GPS.

Recently ran another 4wd event cache here in Victoria and had about 16 vehicles and 35 cachers! Had a ball, met new and great people...

See this page.
