5 grayscale maps covering the cyclone prone regions of Australia from the Equator to 36 degrees South and 96 to 168 degrees East in 24 degree wide overlapping sections, thus ensuring adequate plotting area for any cyclone that could pose a threat to any part of Australia. The black place names are those that would normally be used in Australian Bureau of Meteorology Warnings.

I thank the Australian Bureau of Meteorology for their help with place name and other information that has made these maps much better for the purpose.

Note: These 30 pixel per degree maps will really test your printer. If you get a pronounced 'table cloth pattern' you may need to print them elsewhere and photocopy the result.

15 grayscale maps covering the cyclone prone regions of Australia from the Equator to 36 degrees South and 96 to 168 degrees East in 24 degree wide by 18 degree high overlapping sections. These maps are good for plotting cyclones that threaten specific areas. For places towards the limit of any map, download the adjacent map(s) so you can choose the best map for an approaching cyclone. The black place names are those that would normally be used in Australian Bureau of Meteorology Warnings.

These 30 pixel per degree maps will print well on a larger range of printers than the regional maps above.
