Supplier for NT topographic maps

Postby Steve_Phelps » Sun 12 May, 2013 3:01 pm

I'm looking for a supplier of topo maps (1:50000 series or even 1:25000 if they exist) ) of the Northern Territory, if anyone can advise.

While I've picked up a few of these maps over recent years at the General Store, I'd like to obtain a few more before my next trip which will be next month. I noticed last time I was there that some of the 1:50000 series werent available. Is there a good map supplierin the NT who will do mail order ?

Best supplier seems to be Cartodraft - good website, online ordering etc . I've actually used them before for NT 50K maps but forgot their name and couldn't find the webpage easily this time round.

Thanks for the online supplier, steve,

You can order your maps.

Fremantle map shop:
http://www.chartandmapshop.com.au/maps
I ordered by phone twice. No worries. And they paid the postage. 10 aud per map ( 1/100.000 and 1/250.000 )

Melbourne:
http://www.mapworks.com.au/acatalog/contact_us.html
I always went to the shop. It was much easier when they were in the city!
So i do not know about their internet.

I tried to order with Geoscience but i did not get anywhere:
http://www.ga.gov.au/topographic-mapping.html

here is the map directory:

Does anyone know if there are any NT maps that are 1:25,000 or 1:30,000 or is 1:50,000 the best I am going to be able to get?

I would prefer printed but I can't even seem to find pdf maps better than 1:50,000

It's "big terrain" country and 1:50,000 is usually adequate. If you want more detail, consider getting aerial photos.

Yeah I am wanting to do some route mapping and I can only get 1:100,000 for the area i'm looking at... aerial photos/small scouting trips will be the way to go.
