Standard Slippy Maps
OSMT is a transparent map stylesheet based on FOSM/OSM data for overlaying on aerial or satellite imagery.
In this example we have shown it over the AGRI base imagery which is © Commonwealth of Australia (Geoscience Australia) 2011 CC BY 3.0 AU.
In keeping with good design, maps should be kept simple by default with more complicated features only shown when required. By leaving the administrative boundaries off by default I think the map is easier to use.
This hypsometric tinted shaded relief map of the Australian continental topography and marine bathymetry gives a nice large scale insight into what lies beneath the surface of the ocean.
Scripts for creating this map are avaliable and the map is released under CC BY 3.0 AU, based on Elevation and Bathymetry Data © Commonwealth of Australia, (Geoscience Australia) 2009.
Standard street maps usually ignore showing terrain with good reason, their representation would just complicate the map and provide no added value since lets face it, if you are in your car you don't really care where the hills are.
This terrain map has only one purpose — to show elevation. Based on SRTM data collected from the NASA Space Shuttle from 2001, it still proves to be the best quality, highest resolution, free digital elevation data available.
This map uses vector tiles generalised to your zoom level to provide a fast interactive map showing LGA boundaries. Because it uses vector tiles we can highlight the different regions as you hover your mouse over them and display in real time attribution against that region. This is much better from a human computer interaction principles point of view.
