Arthur’s Pass National Park

This map depicts the land cover, terrain, walking tracks, and backcountry huts of Arthur’s Pass National Park, New Zealand. The physical landscape is given prominence over human infrastructure.

Natural colours emphasise the variety of land cover, from yellow-green farmland and dark green native forest to brown alpine grassland and icy white glaciers. These are modulated with terrain shading that accentuates the rugged peaks and deep valleys of the region.

All other elements, including roads, peaks, names, and the extensive backcountry hut and track network, are overlaid in a simple off-white, allowing all elements to be legible without overpowering the basemap.
