Hi there,
I have just purchased ozi explorer and was wondering if anyone has any digital to swap or can send me on cape york or east coast NSW. I know there are the plotswap but is there anywhere someone can swap actual digital maps?

cheers

I'm pretty sure that the Natmap Rasters 1:100000 for all of Australia is now a free download. Try NATMAP Raster in aGoogle search. You will also need to follow the dirtections as to how to get Oziexplorer to reognise the files check out the Oxi Explorer Web page for instruction on how to do this.,.

Hello - think it is only the 250,000 scale topos at moment i.e. not the 100K series.

The Natmap maps are available from this site. This gives you the whole of Australia. Other digital maps also available but you need to buy them (relative cheap) to honour copyright etc.

There just has been some discussion about the 1:250k maps on the oziexplorer yahoo group.
The Natmap downloads are not the samer quality (clarity, pixels per mm) as the bought ones.
But there are free maps out there. Also, if you have bought some paper maps you can scan them and calibrate them into oziexplorer. Look up the oziexplorer web site as to how to do this.

I only got the programme a year or so ago, and am still learning too :-)

Best of luck.

Hello Jayse76 - be careful requesting swaps or freebies of digital maps (and actually carrying out the “deal”) - the vast majority of good maps are copyright and you are making a blatent criminal of yourself if you “share” around maps/DVD/CDs as it is against the law to copy them your self give away, swap or sell. Not saying this was your intention -just making sure you are aware of this fact.

It is no different to stealing someone’s kayak (to quote a recent example of theft).

There is a number of free maps around but I think you will find the ones that are of most use to will have to be payed for…like most others do. The exploroz shop has a good selection. As suggested the people at www.gpsaustralia.net/ will provide advice on acquiring free and legal maps which may or may not suit your purpose and the Auss topo 250K maps can be downloaded one at a time from the Geoscience Australia website www.ga.gov.au/ .though you may find it more cost/time effective just to buy the entire lot on disc.

Have fun

Cheers
