Tramping in New Zealand is a highly innovative new tramping guide, that has been developed around the latest generation of 'bird's eye' computer-generated maps. These completely accurate panoramic overviews are constructed from map data, but because they can recreate a view of th...e landscape from any angle or height they provide a remarkably readable and clear way of understanding the lie of the land. For trampers, these bird's eye maps offer a superb way of showing a tramping route in three dimensions, which cannot be done with a conventional topographical map. In this book the 40 most popular tramps in New Zealand are featured, each illustrated with at least one bird's eye map. These have been created by Wellington company Geographx, whose cutting-edge maps feature in the acclaimed New Zealand Geographic Atlas. The maps are also supported by relevant route information and photographs from one of New Zealand's most respected tramping authors, Shaun Barnett. The tramps covered include our best known Great Walks, such as the Milford Track, the Routeburn and the Tongariro Crossing, and many others from both islands, such as the Queen Charlotte Track, the ReesDart near Queenstown, and the Pinnacles Hut on the Coromandel. With such a high degree of readability and visual appeal combined with the highest quality information and photographs, Tramping in New Zealand creates a new benchmark for this kind of guidebook, and is set to become a classic in this popular genre.
