The Topo50 map series provides topographic mapping for the New Zealand mainland, the Chatham Islands, and offshore islands at 1:50,000 scale.

Along with the paper-based Topo50 map series, digital images of the maps are also publicly available.

Georeferenced raster digital images are provided at a resolution of 300 DPI. Georeferencing allows adjacent maps to be accurately and automatically aligned within GIS systems.

For more information, and a description of the georeferencing keys:

Please be aware of the following:

  • The existence of a road or track does not necessarily indicate public right of access.

  • Closed tracks are defined as being no longer maintained or passable and should not be used by recreationalists. The Department of Conservation or other authorities should be contacted for the latest information on tracks and huts.

  • Not all aerial wires, cableways and obstructions that could be hazardous to aircraft are held in the data.

  • Contours and spot elevations in forest and snow areas may be less accurate.

  • Not all pipelines including both underground and above ground are held in the data or shown on the printed maps. For the latest information please contact the utility and infrastructure agencies

  • Permits may be required to visit some sensitive and special islands and areas. Contact the Department of Conservation to see if you need to apply for a permit.

Suitable for cartographic visualisation only. It was created by the interpolation of 20m contours with post-processing and filtering it is not suitable for terrain analysis.

This 8m Digital Elevation Model (DEM) was originally created by Geographx (geographx.co.nz) and was primarily derived from January 2012 LINZ Topo50 20m contours (data.linz.govt.nz/layer/768).

For a full description of the how the DEM was generated refer to this layer’s metadata.

Note: This layer has been provided to enable potential users to identify the coverage of photography for Mainland NZ flown on behalf of the Crown between 1936 and 2005.
The layer shows the extent of each photograph taken. The NZ Aerial Survey Footprints, Mainland NZ, (1936-2005) polygons layer shows the extent of each survey undertaken, and the Digitised Historic Aerial Surveys Available for Download (1936-2005) layer shows the extents of the surveys digitised and released by LINZ under open license. See www.linz.govt.nz/about-linz/what-were-doing/projec... for direction on how to access the digitised photos.

The photos are not downloadable from the LINZ Data Service.

The Crown Aerial Film Negative Collection is managed for LINZ by Opus International.You can are order images from the Collection from Opus International in a number of formats, including:
- contact prints
- enlargements
- digital files
- precision scans for photogrammetric production
- orthophotos
You will need to tell Opus International the survey, run and photo number (values in the ‘SURVEY’ 'RUN' and 'PHOTO_NO' attributes) covering your area of interest.
Opus International will be able to provide information about the cost of providing images in the various formats. Contact them at: photosales@opus.co.nz or 0800 680 690

There are also a large number of images which previously belonged to New Zealand Aerial Mapping and which are now are available for public use. The extents of these may be added to the LDS in future. You can order these images by contacting Opus International.

In addition to contour lines, relief shading helps visualise the terrain. Hills and valleys are shaded as if they were illuminated from the north-west.

Relief layers were generated for each sheet, and specifically for use in the Topo50 map series. There may be subtle differences in the relief shading of adjacent map sheets.

The Topo50 map series provides topographic mapping for the New Zealand mainland and Chatham Islands, at 1:50,000 scale.
