The reference map of New Zealand uses National Geographic's Executive
style with an antique-style color palette and stunning shaded relief.
The map shows this island nation in great detail, from the subtropical
North Island (Te Ika-a-Maui) to the glacial carved valleys of Fiordland
on the South Island (Te Waipounamu). The North Island is best known for
large volcanic lakes and the cities of Auckland and Wellington. The
South Island is famous for the Southern Alps that run along the spine of
the island. The highest point in the country is Aoraki (Mount Cook) and
is found in the Southern Alps.
The first settlers of New Zealand
were the Maori from Polynesia, the names on the map reflect this history
with both English and Maori variants. The map also features a
transportation network including highways, roads, passenger railroads,
and major airports. All National Parks are also shown.
