NZ Map Series 260 1:50,000 sheet series for New Zealand Map Grid Topographic Maps. OBSOLETE since 2001.
Each sheet is 30km x 40km in landscape layout which needs an oversize page to print at 1:50,000. The series are coded with a letter and number eg R11 where the letter is the column (A-Z)and the row is the number (1-50). This is a non-intutive pattern when sorted.
The series is widely used for larger scale sheet series because they are nested within and have the main name, scale, and subgrid numbers. Aerial photo tiles, district plans, and many other sets use this convention.
Note that the thumbnail looks very distorted because it is not projected in New Zealand Map Grid.
The new series is called NZTopo50 which is designed for New Zealand Transverse Mercator projection, and has similar nested sub series.
