Haven't come across this google map before.

NZ @ 20m contours

Interesting but I suspect of limited use. Nice relief shading. Most of the content is already available on NZTopoOnline.
Thanks Fraser.

But NZTopoOnline is a dog of a system. I only go there if I need to download the files. For viewing it's awful.

I agree NZTopoOnline isn't pretty, but it is practical. I have no problem using it now that the bugs in the software associated with monitor size were fixed.

The only thing that annoys me is there is no easy way of selecting all the layers then de-selecting the few that you don't want. The "Select All Layers" option will not be added.

Why not automate the process of selecting the items that you want. I'm pretty sure Windows has a feature that lets you create a macro of a series of mouse clicks. Then you can just run the macro each time. If you can't find the built in one there are free ones like this that will do the same thing

Thanks Greig. Never thought of that - but then I've had virtually no experience using macros. Will give it a go when I can find the time.
