Instructions for Posting a New Zealand Historic Places Waymark:
  • Accurate coordinates. Do not use web based maps (or similar programs) since those programs are unreliable and can be up to a 1/4 mile off.
  • Must be listed with a historical organization or the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. You can do a search here: www.historic.org.nz/Register/Search.asp. If you cannot find the location in the database, then you are still welcome to post the waymark as long as you also post a picture of the Historic Places Trust sign that is mounted at the location.
  • Have a non-copyrighted clear photo of the plaque
  • A non-copyrighted photo of the historic area or object. More photos are encouraged.
  • Do not include yourself or your GPS in the default images
  • The name used for the waymark must be the name given by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust (unless a database search returns no results, as stated above); no witty names. The name must also include the text "New Zealand". This makes the waymark easier to locate during certain kinds waymark web searches.
  • In the log description, give as much information as possible describing the location and it's history.
