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.

NZTopo50 is the new sheet index for the 1:50,000 series in NZTM being prepared by LINZ for release in September 2009. This series is space filling and complete, unlike the hardcopy planned with some one third overlap sheets at the edges to avoid whole sheets with a tiny piece of land.

Each tile is 24 km x 36 km in a portrait layout designed to fit on a metric A1 page at 1:50,000.

The series also the basis for standard aerial photo tiles, with nested subsets at larger scales 1:25,000, 1:10,000 down to 1:1,000. Each sheet has a standard code eg BC30 with two letters to distinguish it from the NZMS260 series. The order is also corrected, the rows (first part) are now letters and the columns the second number so that the pattern is more intuitive. Larger sheets have an additional numbered grid within the main named sheet. The nested sheets also fit on an A1 page at their design scale.

Some sheets at the edges are now named with the adjacent sheet.

Although the army and scouts like to use the sheet name and short coordinates relative to the sheet corner, really in this modern age you should now always quote full NZTM coordinates for locations because gps units and other displays do not use sheets. even You could also list the sheet that the feature is on with the full coordinates.

Note that the thumbnail is slightly distorted because it is not displayed in New Zealand Transverse Mercator, the new standard for NZ maps. They would otherwise be exactly rectangular.

Names updated to match September 2009 hardcopy names.

The NZMS 260 Topographic map series began in 1977 and will be completed in 1997. Map sheets are now revised on an 'as required' basis when there is either a great amount of physical change or where there was a public need such as popular tourist areas.

This layer shows the physical coverage of each map sheet in the series.
