The images in this collection have been sourced from the Crown archive at NZAM Napier and scanned into high resolution .tif files. Some of the images have degraded over time prior to scanning and contain defects such as scratches and burn marks.

The images were manually georeferenced and put into ESRI mosaics to create this map and map service.

This early release has been done before an auditing and final checking process to help Environment Canterbury and its partners use this information in the Canterbury Recovery process.

NOTE: NOT FINAL PRODUCT

NOTE: Not to be used as a base for measurement. Inaccuracies occur.
