Brief abstract or additional comments (maximum 100 words) –

The Australian Topography Map service has been created to replicate Geoscience Australia’s 1:250,000 topographic map series. The seamless national coverage portrays features from the 2014 version of the topographic database and includes cultural, hydrographic and vegetation layers.

The service has been created with a “fused cache” which offers visibility of layer symbology, but does not allow layers to be switched on or off. All layers display at the 1:250,000 level to imitate the paper map series. The data has been simplified at higher levels to improve readability.
