NatureMaps – A How-to Guide to Create Free Topographic Maps for SA

In our first installment about mapping resources, we feature NatureMaps which is a free online mapping website provided by the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (Government of South Australia).

Although it’s primarily used to help manage South Australia’s natural resources, it can produce topographic maps complete with contours, grid lines, walking tracks, and a number of other useful features. In this tutorial video Martin Flood will walk you through some of its main features and show you step-by-step how to create your very own route map for hiking.
