New South Wales Topographic Maps in the GRMC

Geospatial Resources & Map Collection: Maps from Down Under

The Geospatial Resources & Map Collection purchased a set of topographic maps of New South Wales, Australia. The maps were acquired from the Department of Lands in New South Wales. The maps feature topography on one side and aerial photography of the area from 2002 on the verso, and the scale is 1:25,000.

The location of these maps is concentrated around the area of the Ball State University Australia Center in Lennox Head. Last summer the Australia Center Director Paul Wohlt (Assistant Professor in Anthropology) requested the maps for use in Australia for the fall semester. Students from Ball State University used the maps in the classroom and for field work during their time in Lennox Head.

These topographic maps/aerial photographs are available for checkout from the GRMC. The maps circulate for two weeks.

The GRMC encourages recommendations for purchase of maps and atlases needed for research and learning. Please contact the GRMC for more information.
