Hema Maps

Hall: 7 - Grand Pavilion Stand: G143

Hema Maps is an Australian based mapping and publishing company that was founded in 1983. The company has expanded purposefully to the point where today it has comprehensive Australia and overseas map coverage in a variety of forms including folded maps, atlases, guides and digital products such as apps and dedicated GPS navigation systems.

With a keen focus on off-road touring, Hema Maps has steadily built its reputation as masterful map makers in the four-wheel driving and outdoor adventure industries. This reputation has come to the fore thanks to the company’s relentless pursuit of accurate cartographic detail relevant to outdoor explorers, realised by its unparalleled updating process. 

The job of collecting and updating this data falls to field-teams known as the Map Patrol, who are responsible for exploring and mapping the vast array of off-road destinations in Australia to keep Hema Maps’ data accurate and up-to-date.
