Details regarding the entire history of changes to Topo50.

Details regarding the entire history of changes to Topo250.

Most of the titles for the selected updates in this release were driven by the requirement to reprint stocks where the current paper map edition was running low.

We aim to print only new editions of paper maps; where stock predictions and data availability permit, the sheet will undergo a HighVis update, and at minimum selected key features will be updated.

Contours

Updated

Schema Changes

A bridge_cl layer has been added to the Topo250 data.

Bridges held in the Topo250 data and shown on the Topo250 maps will be limited to large bridges where the lack of other features (like a road or track) means there would be insufficient information about access.

Topographic Data Dictionary Changes
