Hi all, I have oziexplorer loaded into my laptop. I have managed to calibrate and load my own maps into ozi, but i cant workout how to load the 2008 geoscience 1:250000 topo maps into oziexplorer. I downloaded some file from the ozi site that said it was so oziexplorer could read the natmap files. It also said to extract the files into the oziexplorer folder, which I couldnt find or did not understand what to use. Could someone please help me. Thankyou

Here is my interpretation of it (though there may be a shortcut somewhere)


Go to Local Disk C

Program Files


Natmap Raster Viewer



250K Mosaic

Natmap DVD 1


Now Highlight 250K.ecw file

Copy to Maps File in Oziexplorer

(To find Ozi go back to Local Disk C, then Oziexplorer, then Maps file)

Copy it to Maps File

Now go to Oziexplorer and go to File and Import Map and in box scroll down and click on ECW Maps

ECW File Path must read 250K.ecw C:Program Files Natmap Natmap Raster Viewer(with backward slashes so you have to go look for it)

Map File Path must read C: Oziexplorer Maps Natmap Raster Viewer(have to go look for it too)

Click Import

Now go to Load in Oziexplorer

Load Map File

Look in: Oziexplorer

Double click on Maps

Double click on Natmap Raster Viewer

Double click on1.6

Double click on Maps

Double click on 250K Mosaic

Douiblke click on Natmap DVD 1

Highlight 250K icon and it will go to File Name

Click Open

And the Map of Australia should open in Oziexplorer in a Box

In the top left hand corner of the Box is a small marker. Click on it and drag it to anywhere on the Australia map.

Map view will open.

Next time you want to open the map go to


Open Recent Maps and click on the map you want

Too easy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hahahahahahahahaha!!!!!
