EOTopo: EOTopo with OziExplorer Android

Saturday, Jan 13, 2018 at 01:11


OZF4 files are optimised for use with OziExplorer, but you can also use ECW files.

Note: We have developed a custom interface (otherwise known as a "skin") for OziExplorer Android, called EOZi. EOZi is an add-on to the base program and is designed for ease of usability when using EOTopo maps in the OziExplorer Android program. At under $10, it's well worth it.

EOTopo Set-up:

If you have purchased the Premium mapset then please note that there is no EOTopo 144K Australia.ozf4 file or EOTopo 144K Australia.map file - this is due to file size restrictions. Instead, you will need to either download each of the 6 state files in the 144K scale or use the ECW format which does have the 144K Australia file. The Configuration Menu in OziExplorer Android is found by clicking on the Show Menu icon on the far bottom left of the Screen, then click “Main Menu”, then “Configuration”, then “General Settings”, this will show you the Map File and Data File Paths. You can either transfer the maps to the relevant folders as per the instructions for OziExplorer full version, or if you have limited storage space on the device, you can copy the files to an SD card and then insert this SD Card into your Android device - then change the file paths – for Maps configure this to the OZF folder, and for Data configure this to the Name Search Folder.


The below image shows the Main Menu, General Settings and Configuration Menu for OziExplorer Android. The Configuration Menu allows you to view/change the Map and Data File Paths.
