Maps for the People:

The Mapping Issues of Walking Access in the New Zealand Outdoors

Pete McDonald.


In August 2005 Jim Sutton, the associate minister for rural affairs, announced the formation of a new Walking Access Consultation Panel. The panel 'would engage in consultations to reach general agreement on what measures could be implemented to improve access to the publicly-owned resources of water and fish'.

One of the areas that the panel was to consider was the mapping issues involved in walking access to the New Zealand countryside. 'Maps for the People' looked at those mapping issues.
