How's it going?

Version 5 is published in multiple formats.  V6 in production.

Version 6

In production. I'm adding marine and maritime data. All maps will include bathymetry (depths), relevant features like boat ramps, slips, jetties etc, and navigational infomation (buoys, lights, wrecks etc). Data will be straight from the gov't computers so it should be as accurate as is possible.
Also adding 2018 seasonal road closures by giving affected tracks a pink underlay.

Version 5

Current version. Unlabelled icons replace some POIs and more POIs added; steep track section (skiier), ruin (wreck), hut, camping area, picnic area, parking area, helipad, toilet. OSM 4wd tracks and walking path data added (purple), on Vic Govt of track data (red). They vary slightly in some places so you'll just see both (in some places both exist). Some POI duplication because I've added 3 different sources and can't filter the repetition other than manually and the dataset is 85,000 points, but different labels used when that happens. Solid red line is sealed road, dashed line is dirt, purple is OSM. Went back to EPSG 3857 to fix projection at the edges of the state so it better aligned with the vicmap divisions. 

V5.1 (25k) Added more campsites and helipads from a new dataset, as unlabelled icons.

Split, Index, Grid, Datum, Projection

They're split based on the Vicmap file system. UTM grid overlaid.

The example image opposite should help you work out which map you're looking for, using the index.pdf. 1:25k use the same division, but split in half again into N and S.

Current maps are in WGS84 / pseudo mercator (EPSG:3857).
