Information Sources


These files consist of Survey and Photogrammetric Compilation information and were undertaken by private contractors and Queensland Government for topographic mapping.
Topographic maps show information about the shape of the land: both natural features and purpose-built structures. They can be used to obtain measurements (within map scale limits) of distance, direction, area and quantity. Depending on the map scale, some features are symbolised to provide additional information. Each of the files lists the area of the mapping, scale and the map number. The files contain working documents including sketches of the area and matching aerial photographs in colour or black and white; copies of survey plans of the area are included with the earlier files.
