QTopo - online topographic maps
Topographic maps show information about the shape of the land: both natural features and purpose-built structures. They can be used to obtain measurements (within map scale limits) of distance, direction, area and quantity. Depending on the map scale, some features are symbolised to provide additional information.
QTopo lets you explore Queensland's topography virtually. You can also request specific areas as printable PDFs.
QTopo is accessed through your browser.
To access QTopo quickly on your tablet or mobile device, you can add an icon to your home screen. Choose 'Add to home screen' from the share button on an Apple device, or 'Add shortcut to home' from the menu on Android.
