Hi Antti,

The Digital Elevation Topography Models are from 
<http://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/srtm/> but downloaded 

I couldn't open the link in your second para but this is a list of 
available formats from mapconnect 
the default is ESRI Shapefile.

Can you suggest which of the above formats I might try?

I will read-up on Web Map Service from Geoscience Australia 
unfortunately the mapconnect XML file would not display with firefox???

Thanks for your help, if I may I will ask further questions when I've 
done some more reading.
