A subset of the NationalMap dataset consisting of a combination of historic sites, monuments, and fortification extracted from the LINZ web portal.
The Topographic historic layer consists of the places where there has been historic activity, where there is a historic object, or the structures erected as a memorial can be found in this layer. Also contained are a combination of European fortifications and Maori defensive earthworks extracted from the LINZ web portal. The fortification data consists of: - Redoubt points: European fortification of the New Zealand Wars- Pa points: Defensive earthworks constructed by Maori at any time between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries which were still visible as a topographical object at the time the first edition of the map was published.
This layer is a component of the Topo50 map series. The Topo50 map series provides topographic mapping for the New Zealand mainland, Chatham and New Zealand's offshore islands, at 1:50,000 scale. Further information on Topo50: http://www.linz.govt.nz/topography/topo-maps/topo50
