The Buchanan 1:250,000 topographic map is part of the series that covers the whole of Australia at a scale of 1:250 000 (1cm on a map represents 2.5 km on the ground) and comprises 513 maps. This is the largest scale at which published topographic maps cover the entire continent. Each standard map covers an area of 1.5 degrees longitude by 1-degree latitude or about 150 kilometres from east to west and 110 kilometres from north to south.
Topographic maps show contours, spot elevations, streams, roads, buildings, place names, vegetation and administrative boundaries. They are used by emergency services, environmental resource managers, engineers and others, for planning, development and recreational activities.
If you would like to use this map in the field then we can supply it on waterproof/tearproof DuPont™ Tyvek®. Tyvek® is made of pure polyethylene fibres (plastic) but has the properties of paper, which means it is foldable.
We can also laminate this map, which will allow you to draw on it in whiteboard marker or apply our map dots to locations of interest without permanently marking the map. The lamination also makes the map very durable and protects against tears and stains.
