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.
The Carnarvon Special is one of 50 special maps in the series that covers a non-standard area.
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.
