Hema Maps was founded in 1983 by Henry and Margaret (giving the company the name, He-Ma). With its headquarters in Brisbane, Australia, and subsidiaries in New Zealand and North America, Hema is a truly international enterprise. The company has gone from strength to strength since its early days, and currently produces a range of over 200 maps which are distributed to nearly 40 countries around the world. Among this extensive array of products, Hema Maps have developed a wide range of world atlases, road atlases, city, state and regional maps which have gained a well-deserved reputation for their clarity, quality and accuracy. One area of speciality for Hema are maps of the Australian outback. These maps are ideally suited to 4-wheel-drive enthusiasts wishing to explore Australia's undeveloped regions.
