dc.description.abstract Why a time line for New Zealand cartography? It was a serendipitous idea. The project initially began when the author, Map Librarian at the University of Auckland, was approached by a biological scientist, over the compilation of a chronological listing of events and explorations that had impacted on New Zealand's botanical studies. The daunting task became increasingly detailed, and the author eventually saw the framework of a cartographic time line taking shape. So began this work, which for the delving reader, is as much an entertaining past-time read as it is an important reference work. Maps tell a story in the briefest possible form. This timeline is therefore an organized summary of a far larger story; one of adventure, practical input, hard labour and artistic skill, all which have greatly contributed to the historical mapping of New Zealand and its development as a nation. en
