Re: Contours Australia 5m

The full version (fixed up) can be downloaded again. I've also added the linux version to the download page. The Mac version may have to wait until next month as I'm just about out of bandwidth. I'll see how I go unless someone wants to be a beta tester?

Re: Contours Australia 5m

Anyone that has downloaded CA5m here is the patch. Just over write the old contours_australia_5m.exe with this new one [link removed]. I installed CA5m on 3 different PC (2 XP and 1 Vista) and no problems. I've also taken the contours_australia_5m_win32.zip off line while I get the new one on the se...

Re: Contours Australia 5m

I'm a DH. I had the .exe pointing to the ca5m.7z file on my D drive which is just not going to work. I've fixed the .exe and currently testing it on a couple of PC's. I'll upload and post a link shortly.

Re: Contours Australia 5m

Not sure if I'm missing something, but I've downloaded the file, verified the checksum and unzipped it and run the .exe - but all it seems to do is create a directory in the "install" location with an uninstall entry in it. The .zip files contains the 2 files - ca5m.7z (2,158,318 Kb) and contours_a...

Oziexplorer or Garmin Mapsource with Shonky Maps would do the job.

is the 5m actually more accurate or just extrapolated 10m data.
No it's not more accurate. The holes in the data have been filled in this version. I've started the next version which will be based on the ASTGTM data.

Re: Contours Australia 5m

I would be more interested in the raw data - though I am guessing it is pretty big. The reason is we use software at work to do calculations on microwave link paths, which uses the 3 second SRTM dataset. This has a horizontal accuracy of about 90 metres from memory so can easily miss the crest of a...

Re: Contours Australia 5m

It will be. I sent a DVD over to WA on wednesday so you will have to give it another week. I would call up to place your order just to make sure the DVD sent got there.

Contours Australia 5m

I've finally finished the latest version of Contours Australia over the last couple of weeks and are FREE of charge as usual. The maps cover all of Australia at 5m contour intervals now. I've added a bit more detail to the preview maps in Mapsource, like coast lines, state borders and town/city loca...

Re: OT - Big Aussie Star Hunt

My son and I did the survey last night and it was easy and didn't take long. I listen to the MP3 which was pretty good. My son tried to find the other objects that was part of the sky tour. He got them all apart from the Coalsack and Magellanic Clouds. Can be pretty hard to see but not impossible fr...

OT - Big Aussie Star Hunt

Here's something everyone can do. You get to learn about the night sky and also measure the light pollution in your area for science.
