The Cook Islands are administered by New Zealand and
mapping of the group has been carried out by various New
Zealand surveying authorities. A 1:25,000 scale series (Info-Map 272) was started in the early 1980s by the
New Zealand Department of Survey and Land Information (now Land
Information New Zealand (LINZ)) and Terralink. These four-color
metric maps have an orthophoto base and are on a Transverse Mercator projection, International ellipsoid.
Other larger scale mapping of islands in the group is compiled by the Cook Islands Survey Department on Raratonga.
Soviet military topographic mapping of the Cook Islands is available at the following scale: 1:1,000,000 (6 sheets, complete coverage, published in 1965). This product is
available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
