You could spend $1,000's to buy and maintain your own online mapping system! Get your map for free - here - now!


Simply, follow the steps outlined below and link directly to a range of Australian maps showing location of your choice.

Links to aus-emaps.com maps can also be included in emails or embedded in electronic documents (MS Word, PDF, for example) for use by friends/clients who have access to the Internet.


General Instructions

Each map has a unique URL address and, by adding a few parameters to that URL, you can adjust the map to show a specific location. Some maps also allow for adding markers to highlight locations, text to describe those locations and/or to select which map type to display (see table below which maps support extended functionality).

The simplest way to generate that unique URL is to visit a relevant aus-emaps.com page, zoom to location of interest and click "Link to" button (exceptions are Postcode related maps where you will find relevant information under "About" tab).

Tools

Please use any of our geocoder tools to define geographic coordinates of points of interests for the maps. Bulk geocoder is ideal if you have a number of locations that can be identified by a postal address. Simple geocoder is well suited for manual selection of points of interest.

Tips

Text you want to show on the maps can be formatted using HTML tags but they must be encoded to display properly. The easiest way to encode your text is to place it in the URL address box in your browser and press "enter". Your browser will encode the characters for you. You may wish to experiment to achieve the best result. Visit "Random Places" page for some examples of text formatting and effects that can be achieved.

Ampersand character (&) is used to separate individual parameters in the map URL address .
