G'day

I'm just wrapping my head around gisroam and wondering if anybody knows the best place to topo raster maps for NSW that don't cost an arm and a leg? Most other states seem to have it free or at minimal cost

Cheers

The only digital NSW topo maps I know of are those from GPSOZ

http://www.gpsoz.com.au/ozraster/index.htm

$149 on a memory stick.

They are very good maps with all detail.

G'Day All,
Hi Chimpy; how are you going with GIS ROAM? and if it's not too much trouble could you give us a run-down on the system you are using, IE hardware; Apple Android or Microsoft platforms.
At this point in time I have been researching different open source GIS programs and for the moment exploring two programs; QGIS and GRASS.
As you indicated in your first post this stuff takes a lot of reading and practice to come to grips with the most basic operations, both programs are running on Windows XP SP3.
QGIS along with GPS Babel from what I have read has the ability to convert different GPS files to run 0n QGIS.
When I purchased my Garmin Montana 650T the Australian & NZ TopoV4 map came with it, this map has really good detail and if my understanding from my readings from the QGIS documentation I should be able to run this map in the system, more reading and practice will tell.
MemoryMaps would be worth a look if you're still running GISROAM, they have 1:25000 and I think 1:50000, there is a post hereabouts on using GISROAM and MemoryMaps, do a search and you should find the info.
Are there any other forum members using GIS programs for their research?
Chimpy; Hope the above is of some help and it will be interesting to see if other members are involved in this type of techo stuff.
Cheers, AUoptimist.
