The NZ Aerial Imagery basemap provides a seamless nationwide imagery layer with the newest and highest resolution data, and covers 95% of New Zealand.

This basemap has been designed to be integrated into GIS, web and mobile applications via our WMTS and XYZ tile services. View the Services tab to access these services.

See the LINZ website for service specifications and help using WMTS and XYZ tile services.

This layer is made up of individual aerial imagery (orthophotography) layers available on the LINZ Data Service, and will be updated as new imagery is captured.

Imagery is taken between 2000 and 2014. Pixel resolution ranges from 7.5cm (0.075m GSD) to 125cm (1.25m GSD). The final spatial accuracy varies from +/-0.2 m to +/-20m.

Please refer to the individual layers for specific accuracy, pixel resolution, and licensing attribution requirements.

A list of attribution requirements for each layer are also available at Attributing Aerial Imagery data.

NZ Parcel Boundaries Wireframe provides a map of land, road and other parcel boundaries, and is especially useful for displaying property boundaries.

This map service is for visualisation purposes only and is not intended for download. You can download the full parcels data from the NZ Parcels dataset.

This map service provides a dark outline and transparent fill, making it perfect for overlaying on our basemaps or any map service you choose.

Data for this map service is sourced from the NZ Parcels dataset which is updated weekly with authoritative data direct from LINZ’s Survey and Title system. Refer to the NZ Parcel layer for detailed metadata.

To simplify the visualisation of this data, the map service filters the data from the NZ Parcels layer to display parcels with a status of 'current' only.
