How Accurate is the Data?

The MapToaster Topo/NZ maps are derived from the Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) topographical maps.

The topographic maps are cartographically generalised, and are intended for published maps at their original scale, i.e. 1:50,000, 1:250,000 etc. For use at any other scale, larger or smaller, you should consider carefully its application to your particular circumstances.

The LINZ specification is that 90% of well-defined features, the positional accuracy is within +/- 22 metres from their actual position.

Neither topo maps, nor handheld GPS units are accurate enough to accurately locate legal boundaries. Don't even think of trying.

While all reasonable efforts have been made by LINZ to ensure that the maps as accurate and up-to-date as practicable, neither LINZ nor Integrated Mapping Ltd or other data suppliers make any representations and give no warranties that the maps and software are free from errors, omissions or other inaccuracies.

The maps do not show all aerial wires, cableways and obstructions that could be a hazard to aircraft or vesselsand must not be used for navigation.

The latest information on tracks and huts should be obtained from the Department of Conservation or other authority that manages the track or hut. Some Conservation Estate boundaries are shown some distance from their true position and are indicative only.
