NZMS 260 and 262: Our Metric Topographical Heritage
©2011 | Edited by Graeme Jupp
Launched at NZCS's 40th anniversary in February 2011, this booklet commemorates the New Zealand Mapping Service 260 (1:50,000) and 262 (1:250,000) topographic map series. It has been compiled to permanently record New Zealand's first national metric topographic maps and includes a definitive list of all map editions and reprints.
In circulation for more than 30 years, the NZMS 260 and 262 series were superseded, respectively, by the New Zealand Topo50 and Topo250 series in September 2009. NZMS 260 and 262 contains 100 pages of articles and colour graphics illustrating the development of each series from first publication in the 1970s through 2009.
Multiple authors representing many years of New Zealand cartography experience have contributed to this publication. The booklet is perfect bound in A5 portrait format (210mm x 148mm) and a limited collectible release of 150 copies have been printed.
