Brisbane-based mapping company Hema has begun an intensive mapping expedition of the Great Dividing Range.
Hema Maps marketing manager Peter Davis said they would map “every track and road along the length and breadth of one of the longest mountain ranges in the world”.
The company, now in its 25th year, has mapped more than 300,000km of Australia and continues to update their data.
However, Davis said they had discovered “huge holes in reliable, up-to-date, mapping information, for so many areas, right on the door step of the eastern seaboard”.
“Generally speaking this involves the myriad tracks, roads, recreational areas and magnificent countryside that are entwined in the Great Dividing Range.”
The expedition will replot the entire Great Dividing Range from the New South Wales/Victoria border all the way to Townsville.
