CFA members can download maps in Vicmap Viewer free of charge – but be quick because the offer is only available from 19 October until 2 November.
Vicmap Viewer is a mobile mapping application developed by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to provide easy access to more than 10,000 state-wide digital topographic maps.
Vicmap Topographic maps depict natural and constructed features including waterways, roads, park boundaries and emergency services facilities. These maps are available in 1:25K, 1:30K, 1:50k and 1:100K map scales, and maintained using the latest Vicmap data, Victoria’s authoritative spatial information.
Vicmap Viewer doesn’t replace Spatial Vision Map as CFA’s primary response navigation tool. It should be considered for secondary navigation and information only.
The maps can be used as a reference tool on larger fires, and once downloaded they can be viewed on your device offline using a PDF reader, or other software such as Avenza. They are also able to be printed as required.
