New Zealand Track Profiles (NZTP)

Outdoor route planning made easy

New Zealand Track Profiles (NZTP) provides a comprehensive solution to route planning for the New Zealand outdoors:
Elevation profiles for ALL walking tracks in New Zealand

High resolution 3D topography covering the WHOLE of New Zealand with all the essential details and features normally found only in printed maps. Each map sheet has equivalent area coverage as the corresponding commercial paper map.

Comprehensive track statistics which describe the characteristics of each track and its level of difficulty.

Navigation aids in the form of GPS and Google Earth files, for each track in the map sheet.

Each map sheet is available as a set of two ZIP files which can be downloaded independently.

Some of the 12,000 tracks are free. The rest cost a maximum of $2. … Cheap.

I’m thinking of returning to New Zealand for hiking next year. It’s our #1 hiking destination in the world.

  1. Thank you very much for posting this, I hope your readers find the web site as useful as I have. I should add that for $2 you get as many as 100 track profiles or more, as well as a great topo map! Each sheet can contain several dozen tracks.
    In fact map sheet BP33 in the Tararua mountain range of the North Island, which is the one I am interested in, contains 128 track profiles!.
    Happy tramping

  2. This is fantastic! I’ve been looking for a comprehensive website such as this for a long time. It will make future planning much easier. Thank you for posting!
