Paper charts have been scanned as high resolution tiffs and low resolution jpegs and may be downloaded here free of charge. They can be downloaded individually by browsing to an individual chart (see below). High resolution tiffs can also be downloaded in bulk. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
You can find high resolution geo-referenced chart images (geotiffs) on the LINZ Data Service.
The chart images provided do not replace the New Zealand official nautical charts corrected for Notices to Mariners and are not designed to meet the requirements of marine navigation. In the interests of good seamanship and safety of navigation, all craft navigating in New Zealand waters should purchase official New Zealand nautical charts for their intended voyage from a chart retailer.
