> This page lists some easy mapping jobs - that don't require mapping skill! If you can do orange or red courses then you can share this work. Some of these just need a visit. Perhaps there are some hints that changes might have happened and we need to find out. (Logging, thinning, subdivision, remark from a competitor etc) Perhaps someone has suggested an area and it needs a second opinion. Perhaps the area seems good but we haven't talked to the landowners.

We also list some maps that need minor work. The usual method of updating is to put it off until an event is scheduled. This guarantees that fieldwork will be done in bad weather, and everything will be rushed! This list is designed to enable work to happen in a more sensible way. The best way is to ask the mapping officer for a map at a large scale (2-3X normal) and then to sketch on it. If you have a GPS the file is handy. Someone with our drawing software OCAD will then update the file - or get you started.

Major jobs aren't listed here. If you are interested in learning more please consult This page was updated on 31 July 18. © Orienteering Hutt Valley

Ecclesfield Reserve Upper Hutt An hour or so Small area of bush tracks needs a review. Things on our rogaine mapping don't fit since we got better contours from UHCC.
MAF Research Farm Kaitoke

An hour or two

Re-establish contact with owner and see if we can map.
Hutt CBD Lower Hutt Couple of hours When the playground redevelopment is finished, complete map changes around the civic centre.
Avalon Park Lower Hutt Couple of hours When the playground redevelopment is finished, complete map changes where the pond was.
Te Whiti Park Lower Hutt Half a day There was a tiny old map of this simple park. It could perhaps incorporate Waiwhetu Marae, needs talking to the iwi.
Riverbank Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt Chunks of half a day or so The riverbank is our largest park, and is always changing. Lower Hutt is in reasonable shape up to Avalon Park, though the river is eating away as I write. Choose a chunk and mark updates, or simply report that a zone is/is not OK. PS We haven't had a good look recently beyond Harcourt Park. And there's a new bridge up there.
Kapiti Streets and Parks Raumati-Waikanae Couple of half-days Too late, the easy bit has been done!! However mapping the new cycleway shows that the rest of the Kapiti urban area hasn't had much attention - but it would be great for easy parks-and-streets orienteering/rogaining/MTBO. Easy map updating, probably best done on a bike. South of Kapiti Rd has had some attention, and also Waikanae including the river corridor. There's a gap between which could be filled in.

Bullamahanga Landowners


A day

Of we have only used 1.5 in recent years. We need to keep in contact with the owner of the 1.5, and see whether any of the other bits are still usable. So diplomatic rather than technical skill:-))

Belmont Bunkers Maintenance Lower Hutt

A day or so

Planners have suggested there might be something passable in those fenced off bush blocks. Close to the Hill Rd carpark. Gorse clearing and fencing needs a bit of checking too.

Battle Hill Maintenance

Pauatahanui A day or so The easy changes on the farmland have been done (horse jumps, slips and fences). But in the forest there's a new MTB track and some windfall to map. Fencing is ongoing too.
