EOTopo is an enhanced topographic map of Australia. It incorporates street, road & track data with topographic detail & POI labelling for populated localities & campsites. The EOTopo mapset is a digital project managed by I.T. Beyond Pty Ltd. The mapset is available for purchase and download for exclusive use in the ExplorOz Traveller app.

EOTopo Description

Made by I.T. Beyond Pty Ltd, the small Australian business behind all ExplorOz products and services, "EOTopo" is an enhanced topographic mapset covering the whole of Australia. EOTopo maps were first produced in 2013 as a raster mapset. In 2021 we moved our map production to vector. The map data has been updated extensively with new editions released in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018, and 2019, 2021, 2023 and our best ever edition - EOTopo 2024.

You can view EOTopo 2024 mapdata in our free webviewer on this page. To download this mapset, see the How to Buy section below.


The EOTopo maps are exclusive to the ExplorOz traveller app.

How to Buy EOTopo

The EOTopo licence can be purchased in the ExplorOz Traveller app as an in-app purchase or direct from us via our shop. Click the "Recommended Item" below, or go to EOTopo map licences

The current edition is EOTopo 2024. EOTopo maps are exclusive to ExplorOz Traveller. The Traveller app will offer support for this edition of the mapset until 2028 and may include periodic updates throughout the year which you will be invited to install at no charge. New editions of the mapset are produced annually. When a new edition is released, the previous edition is removed from sale. You can choose to purchase new editions or retain use of the maps in the edition you have purchased whilst they remain supported. Each new edition of EOTopo will be supported for up to 4 years in the ExplorOz Traveller app.

Your EOTopo licence enables unlimited map data downloads to all your devices as needed. This is a one-time payment for the EOTopo 2024 edition mapset.


To download and use the maps offline you will need the ExplorOz Traveller app - purchase separately in Google Playstore, Apple App Store, and Microsoft Windows Store.


To download and use EOTopo offline maps on your device, you will need to buy and install the ExplorOz Traveller app first. The Traveller app software detects your location and displays information relevant to your location as you travel (online & offline).

Both the Traveller app and offline EOTopo mapset are one-time purchases (no subscription). Sold separately, the Traveller App is $59.99 and the offline mapset (EOTopo) is then purchased in-app for an additional $49.99.


In using the ExplorOz Traveller app, a user account (login) is required to detect which content you are licenced to download. Licences are recognised during login to manage access to your paid content. An EOTopo licence permits unlimited map downloads during the supported period. Supported means current and future versions of the ExplorOz Traveller app will enable you to access and store the EOTopo map pack downloads in the Data Manager for that edition of EOTopo.

The EOTopo 2024 mapset will be supported for 4 years (until 2028). During that time there is no further ongoing cost or subscription to use the maps and you can continue to download and store the 2024 map packs to your devices until 2028 or until you purchase a newer edition - whichever comes first. The 2024 licence also offers free periodic map updates during the 2024 year. Complimentary updates will only occur to the current edition mapset (eg. 2024).

We will however, continue to release new EOTopo editions annually so when we release these new editions its up to you to decide if you want to purchase access to the latest map updates beyond 2024. Each Edition has a different name, representing its year, eg. EOTopo 2025. If you wish to obtain a newer Edition of maps, then you require that licence. Each licence is a new purchase. When we release new Editions, it's up to you to decide if you want to purchase a new licence or keep using the maps from the previous edition whilst they remain supported.

When a new edition is released, the previous edition is removed from sale and no more updates are released for the previous edition.


No. You can keep using maps from previous editions of EOTopo whilst they remain supported. Currently we support 2021, 2023 and 2024 editions.


The EOTopo 2024 map set is built using the Vector map format. This format produces high quality, high resolution maps that you can zoom and enlarge and they never get blurry. The vector format also enables us to deliver a lot more detail into the maps without making the maps too large to store on your device. Our maps offer zoom/enlargement that is unmatched by any other digital map of Australia. The whole of Australia EOTopo 2024 map scale offers data up to 2K (1:2,000 scale), otherwise referred to as Topo 2K. Compare to legacy raster Topo 250K maps (1:250,000 scale) used by older systems such as OziExplorer, Hema, and others.


A common problem with mainstream maps such as Google maps, WikiCamps and OSM derivates is that they show a mostly white/plain background with no detail or road definition in regional & outback Australia until you zoom in so close that it becomes unclear and disorientating. EOTopo maps are not like that. We build our maps knowing that people need to see minor tracks at low zoom levels so you will find our maps are clearer & easier to use when you are sitting in your vehicle travelling or using on a small screen like a phone. For example, you can keep the map at a sensible zoom to see the wider area whilst still seeing the road detail. Furthermore, our maps offer 10m contours, which is ideal for hikers, plus lots of terrain and hill shading and lots of useful features such as man-made infrastructure (power lines, conveyor belts, pipelines, silos) and natural landforms and labelling such as roads with special access conditions and our topography data also means you can see the flow direction of creeks, see the exact lineage of sand dunes and their average height and much more. All these features make EOTopo 2024 the one map that you can't be without.

But don't just take our word for it, check it out yourself on this webpage where you can preview the map data yourself before purchase. Go to EOTopo Online.


If you wish to conserve storage you only need to install the LoRes & HiRes packs and your map will still display at the maximum zoom and scale. The optional packs provide additional shading detail for enhanced representation of land features. EOTopo 2024 Map Pack storage sizes are:-
  • LoRes Pack 85MB
  • HiRes Pack 2.9GB
  • Contour Pack (Optional) 3.3GB
  • Terrain & Hillshade Pack (Optional) 1.8GB


In the Traveller app, open the Menu - select Data Manager - go to Offline Map Pack Downloads and press the Download button alongside the LoRes map pack, and then HiRes Map Pack and then any more of your choice. The download option for HiRes will not be available until you have purchased an EOTopo licence - just follow the in-app prompts.


The 2024 product is a totally new product. Purchase of the EOTopo 2024 mapset can be made direct from us using the Shop on our website or you can use the in-app purchase link within the ExplorOz Traveller app (only available in Version 8). Please note that when you make an in-app purchase the app store will take a commission from the sale before paying our monthly sales earnings, hence whilst there is no cost difference to you, it makes an enormous difference to us if you buy direction from our own shop so if you are able, we would greatly appreciate the direct sale.


We get it – you want to make a smart purchase. Just so you know, we bring out new editions every year, but we can't give you a heads-up on the exact release dates because, well, even we don't know them in advance. What we can tell you is this: when you buy the latest version of EOTopo (eg. EOTopo 2024), we've got your back for the first 3 months. During this time, if we release a new edition, you get a free update. This guarantee is to make sure you won't be surprised by a new version popping up within 3 months of your purchase.


Yes very much so. We own the copyright on our map data. The copyright is held in our company name, I.T. Beyond Pty Ltd. See the About Us page of this website if you'd like to find out more about our business.

Each edition of the EOTopo mapset is completely rebuilt Australia wide with all new data. We manage and source new data via a very complex data conflation process utilising numerous sources including the latest official data sources, our own field research/mapping surveys and data submitted to us by our extensive network of app users. We manage our own GIS mapping databases with 260 data elements covering all the topographic features - the roads layer is just one of these elements. Each data source is independently sourced and managed eg. public infrastructure data is derived directly from each state source provider, native title from the government, parks/reserves boundary databases etc. Only a very small portion of our road data layer utilises OSM – but we analyse and conflate open source data against our own data sources to selectively use trusted components. We are also authorised OSM contributors and have extensively contributed to updates this year to make better use of this dataset. The ExplorOz Treks dataset is also a unique feature on the EOTopo maps. This too has been restyled in the 2024 edition. By treating popular 4WD routes as "Treks" we can display these minor tracks at lower zooms than what the hierarchy would normally present them, making significant but minor 4WD tracks easier to use than on any other map. Check the maps out for yourself free on this page.


We have been curating our own map data for around 20 years. We are not new to the market and have long time associations with other Australia map publishers such as Westprint and Hema, who have been our peers and colleagues. In our early years as a digital map producer, our maps were online publications only, however in 2013 when the Australian Government / GeoScience Australia ceased operation of the public mapping department, the downloadable digital maps of the day were already well outdated. It was due to encouragement received from our online audience that we were were compelled to look at offline map production. The first downloadable version of our mapset for offline use was released in 2013 under the branding EOTopo. EO = ExplorOz (our brand) and Topo is the type of map that we produce, a topographic mapset (although it has since become a very sophisticated, enhanced topographic map).

EOTopo map data has been completely revised and updated in each of the following new editions since inception in 2013. With new editions released in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019, 2021, 2023 & 2024.


When you get EOTopo, we've got your back for the first 3 months. During this time, if we release a new edition, you get a free update. This guarantee is to make sure you won't be surprised by a new version popping up within 3 months of your purchase. We get it – you want to make a smart purchase. Just so you know, we bring out new editions every year, but we can't give you a heads-up on the exact release dates because, well, even we don't know them in advance.

This web-based map viewer is not identical to the map engine within the ExplorOz Traveller app but gives a similar representation.

Use the tools on the left side of the map screen to enlarge to full screen and to zoom. If you tap the + or - controls you can increase the zoom level in whole number increments but if you pinch zoom with your fingers or use a roller wheel on a mouse you can zoom by incremental levels (ie. 10.1, 10.2, 10.3...). Tap the Half Moon icon in the top right to switch to dark mode.
