  • NZRM Progress Report 2024-05-25: Volume 10

    Well our apologies for such a long time since the previous report. Work has been slowed somewhat in the current month, but is proceeding satisfactorily and some hardware upgrades have been performed on the Project’s computers to increase production speed for both mosaics and maps. The main effort in recent weeks has been in Volume…

  • NZRM Progress Report 2023-12-21: Volume 10, Volume 12, Webmaps

    So work is still happening to prepare for a webmaps update, as previously flagged. This is running a bit behind because we are all so busy at this time of year, of course. As such, it may be into next year before the site is actually updated, but it will still be flagged as a…

  • NZRM Progress Report 2023-11-25: Volume 6

    Work on maps recently has been focused on Volume 6. In the 1960s the NIMT between Porirua and Plimmerton was doubled, electrified and realigned. Whilst mapping has been done on this section before, it needed to be redone to make it easier to overlap the mosaics produced from Wellington to Porirua which are in a…

  • NZRM Progress Report 2023-11-06: Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3, Volume 6

    Work on maps recently has been undertaken in the area of Taneatua, which is part of Volume 3. Aerials of Taneatua Station obtained some time ago were used to create a comprehensive set of maps from the old Taneatua overbridge as far as the station yard. This also included the Peketahi combined bridge in part,…

  • NZRM Progress Report 2023-10-17A: Proposed Work Schedule To End of 2024

    After consideration the work schedule for the maps project from date to the end of next year is proposed as follows. The plan is to complete up to four volumes which are already well in hand and therefore only need a relatively small amount of work to complete. So all of these are in the…

  • NZRM Progress Report 2023-10-17: NIMT, ECMT, Midland Line, Project Files

    Since the last update more work has been done in Volumes 2 and 4, specifically sections of the North Island Main Trunk which are in both these volumes, and Volume 3, specifically the Taneatua Branch. Work is now returning to Volume 7 to progress the release of the complete Midland Line section with all branches…

  • NZRM Progress Report 2023-09-13: North Island Main Trunk, Midland Line, Webmaps

    In the past week or so, the main work on New Zealand Rail Maps has been focused in the area of the North Island Main Trunk railway. With the receipt of a fresh batch of aerial images believed to originate from a New Zealand Railways Corporation’s official corridor aerial survey of the central NIMT, dated…

  • NZRM Progress Report 2023-09-05: Main South Line, North Island Main Trunk, Webmaps

    Since the last update report, random work has been done on sections of the Main South Line (specifically Timaru Station Yard) and North Island Main Trunk (Ohakune-Horopito, Raetihi Branch and Marton, with a look as well at some of the stuff previously done for Mangaweka-Utiku). The focus on what is now being shared with Facebook…

  • NZRM Progress Report 2023-08-13A: Formats, Views, Webmaps

    So a little bit of detail got left out of the last report, this one is a supplementary. The work that is important at the moment that isn’t tied specifically to the Midland Line is in two areas: So these areas are all important to the ongoing maps project work and it has been determined…

  • NZRM Progress Report 2023-06-07: Wairarapa Line, Midland Line

    Since the last report work has been continuing on the Wairarapa Line maps with new coverage added for Featherston, Carterton and Masterton. However there is no timeframe for when the new material might be added into Volume 6, and previous plans to draw in historical deviation routes for the Rimutaka Incline are currently not scheduled…
