  • A non-copyrighted photo of the historic area or object. More photos are encouraged.
  • Do not include yourself or your GPS in the default images
  • The name used for the waymark must be the name given by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust (unless a database search returns no results, as stated above); no witty names. The name must also include the text "New Zealand". This makes the waymark easier to locate during certain kinds waymark web searches.
