The NZ Imagery Survey Index dataset provides an index to all orthophoto index tiles found on the LINZ Data Service. Each record in the dataset provides both a geometry of the maximum extent of the orthophoto index, as well as all attributes found in each index tile. This dataset therefore provides information to assess orthophoto coverage and metadata across the entire country.

Please refer to the NZ Aerial Surveys Data Dictionary for detailed metadata and information about this dataset.

The imagery data referenced by this dataset is available on the LINZ Data Service.

The imagery was captured by the European Space Agency Sentinel-2 satellites between September 2019 - April 2020.

Technical specifications:

  • 450 x ortho-rectified RGB GeoTIFF images in NZTM projection, tiled into the LINZ Standard 1:50,000 tile layout
  • Satellite sensors: ESA Sentinel-2A and Sentinel-2B
  • Acquisition dates: September 2019 - April 2020
  • Spectral resolution: R, G, B
  • Spatial resolution: 10 meters
  • Radiometric resolution: 8-bits (downsampled from 12-bits)

This is a visual product only. The data has been downsampled from 12-bits to 8-bits, and the original values of the images have been modified for visualisation purposes.
