About this book

The Geographic Atlas of New Zealand sets a new benchmark in atlas publishing. With 264 maps – well over twice as many as recent New Zealand atlases – and a scale of 1:150,000, it presents a remarkable level of detail, total accuracy and a visually stunning rendition of the country's landforms.

There is universal appeal in being able to locate ourselves in landscapes we know or want to know. The cutting-edge mapping software, developed by New Zealand company GeographX, used in creating these highly innovative maps allow us to easily and intuitively understand and visualise the way the land lies. Locator maps at the beginning of the atlas provide an overview of the country and a quick visual reference to more detailed maps. A comprehensive gazetteer with more than 35,000 place names and natural features make this an easy-to-use reference essential for every household.

This updated edition renders the topography of the country in even more striking contrast and detail. The legibility of place names is greatly enhanced, and changes in geographical detail, such as retreating glaciers, are brought up to date.
