Free map images can be downloaded from these sites.
Note: For unregistered users: You will need to use the Trial version to use these maps, the unregistered Shareware Demo version cannot be used with these images. (The Trial version is included in the OziExplorer Software download.) These maps (except for the Canmatrix maps) will require calibrating within OziExplorer using the Load and Calibrate option. (This is described in the Tutorial which can be accessed from the OziExplorer Help Menu).
The Canadian government has released Canmatrix maps at 1:50 000 and 1:250 000 scale for free download. These are GeoTiff image files which can be readily imported into OziExplorer using the Import Maps / DRG Import option.

Digital Maps and Mapping Software
Spectrum Digital Imaging produces digital maps under license from Natural Resources Canada. Presently, we have, presently, over 2000 digital maps, in scales 1:50 000, 1:250 000 and 1:1 000 000, covering western Canada.
GPS Central supplies digital topographic maps and nautical charts that are compatible with OziExplorer. Suppliers of Spectrum Digital Imaging digitized topographic maps, already calibrated to work with OziExplorer. The maps are in .png format, 150 DPI and 8 bit colour. The images are sharp, same scale as the original paper map, cropped, and touched up to remove imperfections from scanning.
