Consultation on paper topographic maps now closed

25 November 2016

Have your say on proposed changes to the price of our paper topographic maps as well as the way they are printed.

Note: Consultation on the proposed changes closed on Monday 28 November.

Paper maps are still an important product for us, but with more people using digital maps we don’t sell as many as we used to. This means that the price we charge no longer reflects the costs of producing them, especially as wholesale prices were last changed in 2009.

To ensure prices reflect costs, LINZ is proposing to raise the wholesale cost of paper maps, and to make greater use of other printing methods. We can also print fewer maps at a time so that they are more up to date.

Before we make any decisions on these, we want to hear from map users. Consultation on these proposals will close on 28 November 2016.
