EOTopo Description

EOTopo is a topographic mapset. The map set covers the whole of Australia in high resolution. The map data incorporates the latest street level and outback road data, including minor station tracks, unmaintained desert tracks, and of course 4WD tracks, PLUS walking trails, bike trails, POI features, campsites, infrastructure, population and more. The mapset is also used as a base map in our Navigation app ExplorOz Traveller to which you can add layers including the ExplorOz Places layer, and/or your own Personal Places layer.

The EOTopo project is managed by I.T. Beyond Pty Ltd, owner of ExplorOz. New versions are produced with full map data updates on a cycle of approximately every 18mths - 2 years. The current version is EOTopo 2019.

Who are the maps designed for?

Whilst EOTopo 2019 is optimised for recreational vehicle-based travellers (4WD, car, motorbike), other users such as cyclists and hikers will find the map data useful. There is a significant focus on topographic detail, showing contour lines, shaded relief, rivers, lakes and all "on the ground" physical features of the Australian terrain. When travelling, this data assists the explorer in identifying what might lay ahead if planning to venture down an unknown track, or peek over the next dune. Topographic detail might also allow you to identify terrain that could provide a suitable bush camp. In additional, important POIs and labelling is shown to you to locate campsites, points of interest, and relevant services.

What do I need to use EOTopo maps?

On this page you will find a tab to open EOTopo Online. This enables you to view the entire data source free using any device that has a web browser (ie. Chrome recommended). This allows you to freely browse, and research map detail on this page, which you might find useful for trip planning. The online map can be zoomed to display more detail as you zoom in closer. At Level 15 you are viewing the map data at 1:18,000 map scale (18K).

You can also download EOTopo maps after purchasing a licence. (See options below). This enables you use the maps in compatible mapping/navigation software. The download versions are designed for use on modern devices such tablets, phones, iPads and notebooks and have never been produced as printed map products, which ensures exceptional readability, clarity and high accuracy. There are two versions of EOTopo 2019 currently available - the App Version is the mapset you will need to purchase if you want to use the ExplorOz Traveller Navigation App when offline. The Raster Version is the option for people who wish to use EOTopo maps in other offline navigation programs (eg. OziExplorer, HN7 devices, Track Ranger etc). The EOTopo 2019 download versions are comprised of raster map tiles for the whole of Australia in a single purchase up to 144K scale (Level 12 in full resolution, with enlargement up to Level 15 as raster overzoom).


To view the approx detail of what is provided in the download versions of EOTopo, use the online map shown on this page and set the zoom to Level 12. At that level you are viewing map data at an approximate scale of 144K. The presentation of the map data is not "identical" to the download formats due to the restrictions of file sizing required for download delivery (but is a very close representation).

How to Buy EOTopo

Option 1: EOTopo 2019 (Raster Version)

If you have the OziExplorer or TrackRanger program loaded onto a device or you have an older style Hema Navigator (HN6, or HN7), or a VMS GPS, or MudMap M7 device then this is the option for you. Files are provided in the ECW format and the OZF/map format. Only devices that support these formats can utilise EOTopo in the raster version. This is a whole of Australia mapset with a large number of files at various scales - provided in both the ECW and optimised OziExplorer OZF/map formats to enable you to select just the files that are applicable to your device. See EOTopo 2019 Raster Version.

Option 2: EOTopo 2019 (App Version)

If you use our app ExplorOz Traveller, then you will get access to download a free Base Map to use when offline. This Base Map provides zoom to Level 10 when offline, however by buying this version of the EOTopo mapset you have access to download 4 additional map packs containing the additional map tiles in the dataset that enable you to zoom to Level 12 at full resolution when offline, plus enlarge/overzoom on higher levels 14-16. Go to EOTopo 2019 App Version

About this Map

The map will default to display the current EOTopo map data in an online zoom system (this is not identical to how the EOTopo 2019 App Version mapset will be shown when using the ExplorOz Traveller app but is a close approximation). This is a web-based map viewer using your web-browser not app software. Use the tools on the left side of the map screen to view full screen and to zoom. If you tap the + or - controls you can increase the zoom level in whole number increments but if you pinch zoom with your fingers or use a roller wheel on a mouse you can zoom by incremental levels (ie. 10.1, 10.2, 10.3...). The system allows zooming to Level 22 however the detail shown on Level 16 and above is enlarged over 100% which is called "overzoom" and will begin to show blur the more you enlarge.

On Level 10 and above we include an overlay of "selected" Place Types from the ExplorOz Places database (only Camps/Accomm & Point of Interest types are shown).


When you download EOTopo for offline use you'll get the whole of Australia with detail up to a resolution of 144K (Level 12). If you're using the App Version, you will be able to overzoom this when you go above Level 12 up to Level 15.
