In 1866 the Otago Survey Office compiled this map of Otago. The inland area as far west as the lakes was known through J. T. Thomson’s work, supplemented by his assistant surveyors Alex Garvie and James McKerrow. The mapped areas west of the lakes drew on the explorations of James Hector, William Rees, Patrick Caples and W. Arthur. Only the inland areas of Fiordland remained unmapped.
