This map can be used on personal travels sites, your facebook page etc to show where you traveled to etc. It can also be used for university or school projects. In all cases a direct link must be provided back to this page without the nofollow tag or in printed works an acknowledgment of the source in the form of www.backpack-newzealand.com. The larger maps can also be used in this case as well. I reserve the right to ask you to remove the map if I believe it is used for profit in any way.
I have also made some New Zealand coastline maps. These can be used for free without any restriction for commercial and non commercial use, a link back would be nice though.

For the geeks - this and my larger maps were made using a mixture of openstreetmap data, LINZ data and some other spatial data that I found on the internet. The longitude and latitude shape file data was extracted and was then dumped into a mysql database. I then wrote some simple PHP scripts using imageline (roads, rivers and coastline), imagefilledpolygon (lakes and national parks) and imagestring (names) and then did some maths to turn the latitude and longitude points into x and y pixel coordinates.
