Hema Maps is a Brisbane-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. Since 1996, Hema Maps has GPS mapped over 690,000km of tracks and 545,000km of unsealed roads throughout Australia, and will continue to pursue premium quality and accuracy within its product range into the foreseeable future.
