Geographic Wall Map

©2008  |  Designed by Barry Bradley, Phil Dixon, Geoff Aitken, and Roger Smith

The map is an affordable educational aid for teaching geography in a classroom environment. It incorporates strong visual symbology, together with careful application of colour and informed selection and generalisation of features. The addition of both hypsometric and bathymetric tints enhance the digitally-derived relief representation. Road and rail networks along with population centres and settlements feature strongly. Major topographic features including lakes, rivers, mountain peaks and ranges, spot heights and islands are also mapped and named. All feature names adhere to the New Zealand Geographic Board conventions and rulings. An inset of the Pacific Hemisphere visually demonstrates New Zealand’s position in the ‘water hemisphere’ and its relationship to its offshore island territories and Pacific island neighbours. Overall, the design helps to give an instant impression of New Zealand’s physical character and its relationship to subsequent settlement and infrastructure patterns. Map presentation is intentionally bold, so that legibility is maintained for ‘long distance viewing’. The map is designed to be used by teachers and parents to educate children about the geography of New Zealand at a fundamental level. It is also ideal to be used in board-rooms, where a quick reference to New Zealand geography is required. 

The map is drawn at the scale of 1:1,300,000 and printed on large 1320mm x 920mm heavy paper stock which has been thin-laminated (or sealed) for durability.

Map Projections and Datums in New Zealand: Development and Applications

©2017  |  By John Hannah

This volume is a comprehensive and updated account of New Zealand map projections and datums. John Hannah's monograph covers the development of national mapping systems, starting with the National Yard Grids used from the 1930s, to the current NZTM2000 projection. There is a thorough detailing of the local meridional circuits underpinning the surveying coordinate systems used in this country. An accessible mathematical basis for the main projection types and specific conformal (shape-preserving) New Zealand projections is also provided. This is supplemented with an overview of offshore island, Pacific island, continental shelf and Antarctic projections. As such, this text is a valuable resource for students and practitioners of surveying, cartography and geospatial science in New Zealand.

The booklet is perfect bound in A5 portrait format (210mm x 148mm).

NZMS 260 and 262: Our Metric Topographical Heritage

©2011  |  Edited by Graeme Jupp 

Launched at NZCS' 40th anniversary in February 2011, this booklet commemorates the New Zealand Mapping Service 260 (1:50,000) and 262 (1:250,000) topographic map series.  It has been compiled to permanently record New Zealand's first national metric topographic maps and includes a definitive list of all map editions and reprints.

In circulation for more than 30 years, the NZMS 260 and 262 series were superseded, respectively, by the New Zealand Topo50 and Topo250 series in September 2009.  NZMS 260 and 262 contains 100 pages of articles and colour graphics illustrating the development of each series from first publication in the 1970s through 2009.

Multiple authors representing many years of New Zealand cartography experience have contributed to this publication.  The booklet is perfect bound in A5 portrait format (210mm x 148mm) and a limited collectible release of 150 copies have been printed.

Mapping Mountain Dynamics: From Glaciers to Volcanoes

©2013  |  Edited by Antoni Moore and Igor Drecki 

Proceedings of the 8th ICA Mountain Cartography Workshop, 1st – 5th September 2012, Taurewa, New Zealand

Since 1999, the International Cartographic Association Commission on Mountain Cartography has held workshops every two years, alternating with the International Cartographic Conferences. The New Zealand Cartographic Society was host to the 8th Mountain Cartography Workshop at the Sir Edmund Hillary Outdoor Pursuits Centre at Taurewa, near Tongariro National Park. The meeting gathered 24 mountain cartographers and enthusiasts from Argentina, Austria, Canada, Germany, Norway, Slovenia, Switzerland, USA and New Zealand. This publication is the record of the workshop, consisting of 14 papers and 8 abstracts on aspects of mountain cartography and new approaches that are of relevance to mountain cartographers. There are paper sections on Mountain and Glacier Mapping, Usability and Cognition, and Professional and Personal Mapping.

The book is bound in A4 portrait format (210 x 297 mm)
