Environment Canterbury GIS site
http://www.ecan.govt.nz/ECanMapping/viewer.htm
Zoom in then click on imagery and you can get aerial photos (limited coverage) and maps.
Turn on land parcels to work out where the property boundaries are.

If on Dialup... have a good book ready, the maps are good, but they take a while to download.
  

Of course I'm compensating. If I could kill stuff at 200 meters with my dick, I wouldn't need a gun.

Also make sure if your using Internet Explorer, that popups are allowed for the host.

Internet Options / Privacy Tab / Settings / type in *.linz.govt.nz & click add.  The DOC one is the same too, you need to add gis.doc.govt.nz to get it to work.

I still havent managed to get it to work in Opera - does it work fine in Firefox?

This is another useful site, uses google photos, but does not have all the bells and whistles so loads abit faster (esp for dial up) and you don't have to install anything to use it.  Use the View tab on the left top of the screen to go between map, hybrid, sat and terrain.  Unfortunately does not have a search function or coordinates but handy for looking at an area before or after a hunt and it is free!

Hopefully soon I'll have some Google Earth overlays of the country, I'll start with contour lines, but if there is anything in particular people want (from the data sets available from LINZ), or particular areas, let me know.

I'll probably break the the country down into rough regions to keep the KMZ files to a reasonable size (and Google Earth can't handle big files easily).

Huts and Bivvies if you could please.
Maybe a few good natured guys with GPS could lend a few good campsites as well.
  

God was my co-pilot but we crashed in the mountains and I had to eat him.
