About Cartoscope

Cartoscope directors first commenced their mapping business in 1969. In 1988 the company diversified into tourism publishing and now have a proud record of service to the public and industry. Cartoscope publish over two and a half million maps and guides annually and the number continues to grow with the coverage expanding along the eastern coast of Australia and to selected inland regions of New South Wales.

The major benefit of Cartoscope products lies in the maps. These differ from most other maps in that they carry more information which is of value to the tourist, such as picnic spots, museums, national parks, lookouts, boat ramps, golf courses, petrol & gas stations and caravan parks to mention a few.

Cartoscope are experts in all aspects of tourism publishing. Cartoscope has won many NSW Awards for Excellence in Tourism, 3 in the category of Media and 3 in General Tourism Services.

Cartoscope supports a sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to running our business. All the paper utillised in the printing of our maps is FSC certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council. This means it comes from well managed forests and other controlled sources. Cartoscope's delivery truck runs on LPG and we have a recycling program for all our office waste including two worm farms. Cartoscope sponsors free ads for wildlife rescue groups on all of our maps as well as publishing environmental information advising map users of some steps they can take to reduce carbon emissions.
