If you’re a keen tramper, angler, hunter, or other outdoor pursuit enthusiast you’re likely to already be familiar with the official LINZ ‘NZTopo’ Topographic Map Series, traditionally purchased as printed paper maps.
These topo maps have now been made even easier to use and access through the free online service www.topomap.co.nz.
Merging the official LINZ topo maps with the Google Maps interface provides a new level of detail, says Topomap.co.nz.
For access to topo maps while on-the-road a mobile version of the service is available for iPhones, Android devices and other smartphones. If available, the devices built-in GPS capabilities can be used by the service to pin-point your current location on the map – handy if you’re a little lost.

Its great that these sites are popping up.
I really like this one.
WALKING ACCESS MAPPING SYSTEM
It seems to have the most update aerial photos and better quality than google earth. Bit slow but its worth the wait. It also has great tools to measure stuff.
