MAPsport's ISOM2017 Symbol Extensions DESCRIPTION of a set of symbol and colour extensions from the OCAD default for a 1:15000 ISOM2017 map. Having had some experience with the new spec, this is my composite symbol set for standard foot-o, rogaines and MTBO. Pleasing to see some of my extensions incorporated in the std OCAD symbol set:-)) See also "MAPsport's Hidden Symbols" below. May 2018
OCAD 11 file for above OCAD 11 file containing a set of symbol and colour extensions from the OCAD default for a 1:15000 ISOM2017 map, or a Rogaine/MTBO map. PLUS MAPsport's hidden symbols. Make a 1:10,000 version using the enlarge/reduce symbol feature. May 2018
CRT file for above CROSS REFERENCE TABLE to go from the ISOM2000 file with MAPsport extensions, to an ISOM2017 file with MAPsport extensions. For clients to whom I have supplied maps OR to use as a starting point for your own CRT - fully commented. (NB my computer thinks crt files are security certificates. I have provided it here as a text file. Before using it with OCAD you'll have to change the extension to crt.) May 2018

MAPsport's ISOM2000 Symbol Extensions Description of a set of symbol and colour extensions from the OCAD default for a 1:15000 ISOM2000 map. All mappers have some extensions, the value of this is the consistency in symbol/colour numbering. Includes the MTBO symbols (NZ version). 201X
MAPsport's Hidden Symbols Description of a set of symbols to aid the cartographer behind the scenes. Such symbols are hidden on production maps. Many mappers use temporary symbols like these, the value of this is the consistency in symbol/colour numbering, and keeping clear of the "proper" numbers. 200X

MAPsport's Combination Park/Sprint Symbols Description of a set of symbol and colour extensions from the OCAD default for a 1:5000 ISSOM map, to fix the stupidities especially for natural terrain.

NZ Topo50 Map Extents Supplied by Land Information New Zealand. There used to be a table on their website but has disappeared. Perhaps they think everything is seamless these days, but there are a number of times when we need to know the map ID, for example the imagery tiles use this in their naming convention. These are NZTM coordinates. Jul 2016
NZMS260 Map Extents Supplied by Land Information New Zealand. It used to be on their website but in the excitement of going over to the NZTopo50 maps they threw this baby out with the bathwater! These are NZMG coordinates. Oct 2009
