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:

  • Representation of a road or track does not necessarily indicate public right of access. For access rights, maps and other information, contact the New Zealand Walking Access Commission - www.walkingaccess.govt.nz

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 Closed tracks are defined as being no longer maintained or passable and should not be used.

  • 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.

This provides a polygon coastline and islands layer which is based on the Topo50 products. It is a combination of the following layers:

Islands from the NZ Island Polygons layer that lie within the NZ Coastline and Chatham Islands areas (i.e. islands in lakes, rivers and estuaries) have been removed.

The GIS workflow to create the layer is:

  1. NZ Coastlines were converted from a polyline to a polygon using a polyline to polygon tool.
  2. The resulting coastal polygon was then used as an input into an erase tool and run against the NZ Island Polygon layer to remove all islands lying within the NZ Mainland and Stewart Island.
  3. This was then merged with the NZ Chatham Is island polygons (Topo, 1:50k) that have had the islands within the main island polygon removed, NZ Auckland Is Island Polygons (Topo, 1:50k), NZ Campbell Is / Motu Ihupuku Island, NZ Antipodes Is Island Polygons (Topo, 1:25k), NZ Kermadec Is Island Polygons (Topo, 1:25k), NZ Bounty Is Island Polygons (Topo, 1:25k) and NZ Snares Is / Tini Heke Island Polygons (Topo, 1:25k) layers using a merge tool.
  4. Lake Onoke from the NZ Lake Polygons (Topo 1:50k) layer and Te Whanga Lagoon from the NZ Chatham Is lagoon polygons (Topo, 1:50k) layer were then erased from the resultant polygon layer to include these two water bodies in the coastline definition.

For more detailed description of each layer refer to the layer urls above.

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. It shows the extent of each aerial survey undertaken. The Historic Aerial Photos, Photo Footprints (1936-2005) layer shows the extent of each photograph in the survey.

See The Crown historic aerial photo archive scanning project for information about the scanning project.

The original data used to create this layer was compiled prior to 2000 and it is possible that some errors exist in the data fields. If you are aware of any inaccuracies, please contact LINZ: info@linz.govt.nz or +64 4 4600110.

How to Access Photos:

The Collection exists as photographic negatives (most are not in digital form) so the images are not downloadable from the LDS.

Scanned photos from the partner regions may be viewed and downloaded from Retrolens.

The Crown Aerial Film Negative Collection is managed for LINZ by WSP Opus International.

You can are order images from the Collection from Opus NZ in a number of formats, including:

  • contact prints
  • enlargements
  • digital files
  • precision scans for photogrammetric production
  • orthophotos

You will need to tell Opus NZ the survey number (the value in the ‘SURVEY’ attribute) covering your area of interest.

Opus NZ 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 a small number of images held in the Collection that have not been referenced in the LDS layers due to incomplete metadata. Opus NZ will be able to let you know if additional photographs are available in your area of interest.

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. Historic Aerial Photos, Survey Footprints, NZAM (1939-2008) shows the extent of each survey undertaken. You can order these photos by contacting Opus NZ.
