A cautionary note about "free" on-line Australian postcodes and mapping tools

We all love a bargain, true enough, but take a moment to consider the value you place on data being accurate and fit for purpose; there's an acronym, GIGO, which means "garbage in, garbage out". Take a moment to consider the inputs you may be basing your business decisions on, see our illustrated examples including external links.

This image shows our postcode data integrated with Census 2011 population data, illustrating the density (number of individuals per km2) of a particular demographic group for metropolitan Sydney, the "higher" the postcode above the surface, the greater the population density for the group in that postcode area. The colours are formatted on the actual number of the group in each postcode, red (low) through green (high). Combining the two views illustrates some interesting patterns, where for example absolute numbers are low, but density is high (the red and yellow medium height "skyscrapers" in central Sydney). Click the image to see more examples, including those in Google Earth format like this one.

Or check out the interactive features available with a Google Map like the one below, based on a sample of our Enhanced Postcode GIS Data series for Victoria (Standard Postcode Series available on this page). Try viewing in a Google Earth window (click the "Earth" button top right of image)! Alternatively and to be able to see the "skyscraper" effect for yourself send a quick mail to sales asking for a copy of the file, which you'll be able to fly around in full Google Earth - in this example it reflects "population density", or number of persons per square kilometre.

Please also refer to our FAQ section, where you will find summaries, plus links to important information from Google about Google Earth and Maps.

Our Mission

To give broad community access to the benefits of the spatial data revolution.

Company Profile

Custom mapping and data analysis services for trouble-free maps and map data for your individual needs, whatever they are. 

Businesses large and small, primary producers, the resource sector and community organisations have been largely ignored during the amazing geographical data revolution, which has been powering our governments and government business enterprises for over two decades.

No Longer! You no longer need to struggle with a seemingly impossible jigsaw of maps and reports from inaccessible government and commercial suppliers. Nor do you need to go to the often-wasted expense of buying your own technology, let alone the roulette wheel of finding someone to drive it effectively.

MapMakers can do it all, efficiently and economically. We have over thirty years of experience in data collection, analysis and functional map production including business (specialising in franchise and territory area mapping, sales and customer demographic analysis); all levels of government; community organisations; academic research; resource exploration and processing including oil and gas; primary production; soil and geological survey; flora, fauna and heritage surveys.

Having this breadth and depth of experience, we know what information already exists and what is likely to meet your specific needs. We also know how to access that information quickly and economically, on your specific behalf, often at little or no cost to you. You will be amazed just how much information already exists which of immediate and particular significance to you and your needs.

Until now, the main obstacle to empowering yourself or your enterprise has been, knowing what exists AND how to access it.

MapMakers break through that barrier, resulting in delivery of the exact information needed to answer your questions and advance your enterprise.

MapMakers are proud to be associated with APESMA (Association of Professional Engineers, Scientists and Managers), and the Environment Institute of Australia.

Our Manager Spatial Operations and Product Development - Graeme Greenwood (MSc Resource Management) has been actively applying leading edge spatial technologies since 1984. The examples on our web site are just a few of the many areas to benefit to date. Get in touch soon and begin to share the benefits of the spatial revolution!
