If they are Auslig they are probably the old version. The new maps are put out by the re-named organisation Natmap and have NATMAP on the CD. The new maps are *SUBSTANTIALLY* better than the old maps. The calibration improvement alone is worth the money to upgrade.

Yes, the new one is still $99.00. The DEM which was from memory $3,435.00 is now also down to $99.00. I was at the head of the queue wating for the new maps. I always have the latest and greatest in mapping software, maps and iPaq's. Out of date maps are just that - old hat!

DEM stands for 'Digital Elevation Model'.
http://www.auslig.gov.au/products/digidat/dem_9s.htm

These allow you to build 3D maps, and you can see the topography in real on your desktop. Having the DEM's are great for planning a trip into unknown country, as it is easier to plot an intended path.

When we buy in our last stock for the Auslig Raster CDs, we automatically were supplied with the new and improved 2002 edition which is indeed, as you say rebadged as Natmap. They are the replacement product not a competitor. We've had them now for over a week. You will see it in our Adventure Shop of course, for $99. See the heading under maps - Maps on CD.

Regarding the date order in the Trader, the free ads are in date order but the display ads are given priority and jump the queue to the top. They also stay at the top until sold regardless of any new free ad coming in. The $15 for the display ad gives people this priority with the listing, plus the ability to write a longer description and as you can see, also the provision of an image which can be seen as a thumbnail and also an enlargement if you click on it. Ads run till sold.
