Dunedin Works Central Otago Irrigation Schemes Maps and Plans Digital Scans   (24094)
unknown - unknown  range held: 2001 - 2001


This was an artificial series comprising digital scans of maps and plans, TIFF format files on CD-Roms, which documented Central Otago Irrigation Schemes. The original maps were created by the Ministry of Works and Development Resident Engineer In Alexandra and Ministry of Works and Development, Dunedin District Office. The original maps and plans mostly dated from 1930 to 1965. The original plans were on microfiche and TIFF files were created by the scans by Digital Filing Solutions Limited, Hamilton in 2001.

The item descriptions were taken from lists of maps and plans accompanying the CD-Roms. The maps and plans were used as the basis for the research into the currency of the mining privileges for irrigation schemes.  The scans were also used in published reports  to illustrate the locality and extent of each irrigation scheme.

The publication 'Crown Owned Mining Privileges in Otago - Recommended Actions for Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry' - Prepared by Sue Scott and Mike Kelly - Opus International Consultants Limited Alexandra Office, 2007, contained, for each irrigation scheme,  annotated copies of the maps and plans  [Archives Reference: DAIG/D588/5f].
