This post is for Aussies

Touratech Germany have a map of Australia/NZ (entire) in ecw format - very impressive - for sale on their website www.touratech.de/shop for EUR87.07 excluding VAT. Most useful for the sort of PathAway input being discussed here.

But - if you order it (+ postage), they pass your order to the Aus distributor in Melbourne, who kindly obliges with a 50% price increase !

I really don't know why we put up with this ...

Additional information:

the Touratech maps are actually from NatMaps (GeoScience in Canberra) and are available on DVD for about AUD$115.00 from various outlets in Aus (like the MapShop in Newcastle)

GeoScience allows you to download 1:250000 sheets free if you register with them. Format is *.ecw (amongst others)

The NatMaps Premium DVD (see above) when installed lets you export a JPG (this includes roads, towns and topo), and gives you grid co-ordinates on any point within the map you choose, so calibration is truly simple.

Much better - it seems the Federal Govt in Aus has actually done something useful !
