Hi ExplorOz Reader,

Production Update - Just a few hours ago, our servers began production of the 2015 Release of EOTopo200K. This means that all the human endeavor has been done and now our computers begin the task of data extraction to produce the map files in a portable format to get it in your hands and onto your devices.

We are also ready to commence the upgrade of EOTopo online (and Places topo base maps) to use the new 2015 data (currently showing 2014.3) You will notice a massive difference. We are also building a download site for the upgrades. So, plenty of development work still to go. Both the online version and the 200K product is planned for release in October although you can pre-order now. Stay tuned for more news in next week's newsletter.

Last Chance to Get your Raffle Tickets - just 4 days left for those still wanting to buy raffle tickets online for this wonderful hand-painted saw blade that will be drawn at the National Gathering in Trilby on Wednesday 1st October. All funds from the sale of tickets will be donated to Louth RFDS clinic.

Safe travels to all those heading off soon to meet up in Trilby. We hope to see your photos and stories in the blogs soon.

Bloomin' News - Casuarinas range from shrubs to medium sized trees and are found right across temperate Australia. Two species including the distinctive Desert Oak are found in the central deserts, while other species range across wetter areas and some border the beaches. They are best known for their long “needles” that function as leaves and make a sighing sound as the wind blows through them. The separate male and female flowers are small and mostly inconspicuous, but the seed cones are often large and spiky and are favoured by cockatoos.

Thanks to Member Val Wiseman for these helpful tips!.
