    Default Gampians Victoria/Australia maps

    I'm planning on a trip around the Gampians once the tracks are all open and the weather is good, so I thought I create some usable maps first.
    So that other people don't have to do the same again I want to share my work:
    The offical PDF map for the use on these phones with the Apple on it can be found [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - same map but converted into Ozi format.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - generated from Google data in Zoom level 15! in Ozi format.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - same as above but in ECW format.
    For all that like to play with the 3D version of Ozi Explorer:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - these are the above maps joined into a 3D elevation map for the use in Ozi 3D.
    In case you want to create your own 3D map for the region: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Update:
    I noticed that Bing for some reason offers more tracks in the region than other providers.
    I checked some of the tracks from the Bing map in Google and it seems that some of them are only usable for bikes or are overgrown a bit.
    Since there are still some GPS systems running Ozi on old or slow hardware I took the liberty to process the combined tiles in the following way:
    1. sharpened the image
    2. improved the contrast a little bit
    3. use Photoshop to reduce the colors to 48 with a fixed color palette
    All this resulted in an image of 13369 x 23809 pixels - that is a bit over 300 megapixels!
    Due to the good color reduction I was able to keep the filesize below 8mb, resulting in an ultrafast loading map
    You can still use the elevation data from above to create a 3D map.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - Ozi .map file and other files needed to convert into other map formats are included
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - to turn the map into a top map as in this screenshot : jacpvo
