Since its first release in 2000, NATMAP Raster digital maps of Australia has become one of Geoscience Australia’s most popular products. The 2005 release offers the perfect combination of 1:250 000 scale topographic map content and reliability for both home and work use.

This year's versions combine the data from NATMAP Raster Mosaic 2003, and NATMAP Raster Mapsheets 2003 into one package, for only $99 (NATMAP Raster on four CDs). This includes all current five hundred and thirteen 1:250 000 scale topographic NATMAPs. The maps are provided individually, and as a continuous map of Australia. 1:1 000 000 and 1:5 000  000 scale maps of Australia, and the 2002 Australian Greenhouse Office (AGO) Landsat Satellite Mosaic of Australia at 50 metre resolution are also included.

NATMAP Raster Premium, on two DVDs ($119), includes the same map content as NATMAP Raster 2005, but with enhanced image quality by using less image compression. Instead of the five hundred and thirteen individual maps, eight UTM zone mosaics are provided in MGA94. Raster Premium also includes a 25 metre resolution AGO Landsat Satellite Mosaic of Australia.

NATMAP Raster and Raster Premium 2005 Releases are available from the Geoscience Australia Sales Centre and NATMAP retailers located in every State and Territory.
