British navigator James Cook made the first map of the entire New Zealand coastline during his visit in 1769–70. Many surviving place names conferred by Cook appear on the map, including East Cape, Cape Campbell and Cape Farewell. It also shows names conferred by Abel Tasman (such as Cape Maria van Diemen) and Māori names (such as Toaipoonamoo for Te Wai Pounamu, the South Island).
