|About NZ Topo Plus and Topo Hunt
We're fortunate in NZ to have some really good government produced topographic maps. This set includes these Topo50 maps PLUS we've added valuable information to make them even better and more accurate. This set further includes a modified Topo50 map and a High Definition Topo25 map for even more clarity and detail. The Topo250 map is included free with the free Memory-Map app.
What is Topo Plus?
The Land Information NZ (LINZ) Topo50 maps are a fundamental necessity to anyone exploring NZ countryside or going bush. But they're not without some limitations. The casual outdoor adventurer may be unaware that NOT all tracks, huts and campsites are shown on these government maps. And the tracks that are shown may no longer exist, entrance and exit point may have moved or they might run over private land closed to the public and otherwise be impassable. Experiencing these sort of problems can put a serious downer on a good day out.
What we've done is to add in the Dept of Conservation (DOC) data to provide visual info on the correct position of verified and maintained tracks.
So when you see a track marked with a purple dotted line, you can be reasonably sure it does exist, it is where it is shown to be and it is passable. Also included and overlaid on the maps are the DOC managed Huts and Campsites.
PLUS - We've included a High Definition Topo map at 1:25,000 scale. This really gets down to the detail and is an ideal scale for tramping or getting around town.
What is Topo Hunt?
It’s the same as Topo Plus. It includes the same Topo50 and Topo25 maps with the addition of the DOC Hunting Blocks to the Hunting edition of the Topo50 map. Thats the only diference. The boundary of the hunting blocks is overlaid and displayed on the Topo50 map. This is a significant asset in helping hunters plan and scope out new places to apply for a hunting permit.
When used as a moving map complete with GPS (i.e. on a smartphone), hunters can see their position in relation to the boundary of any given hunting block. This helps hunters avoid the legal complications of straying onto private property or otherwise outside of the licenced block.
