Abstract: A workshop held in Dunedin in January 2002 attracted 20 people active in earth science research in Fiordland, New Zealand. Participants outlined their research interests and experience in Fiordland, and possible relationships with the QMAP 1:250,000 geological mapping programme. Subsequent discussion focussed on how best the programme could map Fiordland, and how presentation of geological information on the map could be improved for end users. Changes in QMAP presentation methods will be made for QMAP Fiordland, although data collection and GIS procedures are likely to remain the same. One published map will probably use colour to represent lithology, not age; and a folio of computer-plotted derivative maps will be produced if funds permit. The map boundary will be changed to cover the Fiordland region, rather than stay rectangular to follow other sheet boundaries. It is anticipated that the QMAP Fiordland programme may also act as a general repository of GIS-based geological information in future. (auth)
