Can I publish a map at multiple resolutions? For example, would a JPEG 2000 file format fit the bill (though I don't think my GIS can handle one!).

The problem is that my maps frequently have insets. So my choices are to upload the insets as separate maps; leave them in the 'wrong' place (as I've done with my "Tasmania Wine & Gastronomy Map"; or put them into the right place and increase the resolution so that users can zoom in, as is only appropriate!

What do you suggest? What have other publishers done?

And is there a place on your site where there are FAQs and how-tos for us map publishers?

Thanks. Keep up the great work.

    You should publish the main map & inserts as different maps, then make them into a "series". A series is simple a bundle of maps.


    We don't have a FAQ.

    We only accept the GeoTiff format. All you need to do is let us know you've got maps ready to publish. We will send you a spread sheet with all the meta data required for publishing filled in. Then send us the map files & the spreadsheet digitally. We will then get them published on your behalf.
