Perfect for casual day trips to serious bush excursions.

Topographic Map Tiles

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

At a scale of 1:50,000, Topo50 maps show geographic features in detail. They are useful for a wide range of activities such as local navigation by vehicle or on foot, locality area planning and study of the environment. Used by a wide variety of groups, Topo50 is the official topographic map series used by New Zealand emergency services.

To produce our Topo50 maps of the New Zealand mainland we use:

• The New Zealand Geodetic Datum 2000 (NZGD2000) – the coordinates of longitude and latitude
• The New Zealand Transverse Mercator 2000 (NZTM2000) projection – this is what enables the curved mathematical surface approximating the Earth to be represented on a flat sheet of paper.

To produce our Topo50 maps of the Chatham Islands we use the Chatham Islands Transverse Mercator 2000 (CITM2000) projection.

Topo50 map tiles sourced from the LINZ Data Service http://data.linz.govt.nz/ and licensed by LINZ for re-use under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 New Zealand licence.

Satellite Imagery

LINZ has been working towards getting New Zealand’s most current publicly-owned aerial imagery – covering 95% of the country.

Aerial imagery is captured from airborne sensors and cameras. It provides an accurate photographic representation of the earth’s surface and the features on it. It can be used to visualise landscape, or to understand how an area has evolved over time.

WHAT OTHERS SAY

“This app saved my life! * * * * *

This app was downloaded, while lost in the Kaimai Ranges. GPS quickly located position, app quickly (ish) downloaded the relevant NZ topo map. From there easily identified position on the map. Outcome, life saved. And my mates who by this stage was getting all girly about it all. Best app ever!!!” - Jk9624 on the UK App Store


DEVICE REQUIREMENTS

No device requires a cellular data plan to use iHikeGPS NZ.

Recommended: the iPhone 4S or later, & the 4th or later generation iPads with WiFi+Cellular support full navigation.

Usable: the iPad 2 & 3rd generation iPad with WiFi+Cellular support full navigation except for map stitching.

The WiFi-only iPad 2 & later, and the iPod touch (5th gen) & later require an iOS-compatible external GPS receiver to show your location in the wilderness and to record tracks. View maps using the iOS device alone.

Continued Use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.


Your dream of tramping adventures reaches new heights with iHike GPS NZ.
