This dataset provides information about the survey control network, position, position accuracy, mark name, mark type, condition and unique four letter code for geodetic marks in terms of New Zealand's official geodetic datum, New Zealand Geodetic Datum 2000 (NZGD2000).

The dataset only contains marks that are within the New Zealand mainland and offshore islands. These positions have been generated using geodetic observations such as precise differential GPS or electronic distance and theodolite angle measurements. The positions are either 2D or 3D depending of the availability of this measurement data.

The source data is from Land Information New Zealand's (LINZ) Landonline system where it is used by Land Surveyors. This dataset is updated daily to reflect changes made in the Landonline.

The mark network is segmented into six control networks which provide control marks for specific purposes. The control_network field within this layer records this network with the 3 or 4 letter abbreviation code as follows:

NRF  - National Reference Frame  
NDMN - National Deformation Monitoring Network  
RDMN - Regional Deformation Monitoring Network  
LDMN - Local Deformation Monitoring Network  
CHN  - Cadastral Horizontal Control Network  
CVN  - Cadastral Vertical Control Network  
BGN  - Basic Geospatial Network  
NHN  - National Height Network

Note a geodetic mark can be in more than network. Also not all geodetic marks are currently associated with a geodetic network. Those that are may be referred to as a control mark. For more information about the control networks refer to www.linz.govt.nz/geodetic/geodetic-programme/surve....

Accuracy

Geodetic marks with a coordinate order of 5 or less have been positioned in terms of NZGD2000. Lower order marks (order 6 and greater) are derived from cadastral surveys, lower accuracy measurement techniques or inaccurate historical datum transformations, and may be significantly less accurate.

The accuracy of NZGD2000 coordinates is described by a series of 'orders' classifications. Positions in terms of NZGD2000 are described by three-dimensional coordinates (latitude, longitude, ellipsoidal height). The accuracy of a survey mark is indicated by its order. Orders are classifications based on the quality of the coordinate in relation to the datum and in relation to other surrounding marks. For more information see www.linz.govt.nz/geodetic/datums-projections-heigh...

Note that the accuracy applies at the time the mark was last surveyed. Refer to the web geodetic database for historical information about mark coordinates.

Note also that the existence of a mark in this dataset does not imply that there is currently a physical mark in the ground - the dataset includes destroyed or lost historical marks. The geodetic database provides more information on the mark status, valid at last time it was visited by LINZ or a maintenance contractor.

The Canterbury region of New Zealand experienced a sequence of significant earthquakes during 2010 and 2011. These earthquakes occurred on 2010-09-04, 2011-02-22, 2011-06-13 and 2011-12-23. Precise-levelling surveys have been carried out throughout Canterbury and Christchurch to re-establish heights after these earthquakes.

Users may also be interested in the horizontal coordinates derived from GNSS data in the companion layers Canterbury Earthquake Geodetic Marks (2010, 2011) - Comprehensive and Canterbury Earthquake Geodetic Marks (2010, 2011) - Simple

Horizontal Accuracy (standard deviation) approx 1m.
Vertical Accuracy of Lyttelton Vertical Datum 1937 heights (standard deviation) 0.005m.

Heights generated from precise levelling data undertaken to a misclose standard (mm) of 5*sqrt(k) where k is the distance in kilometres. Precise levelling in the Christchurch area was undertaken after the 23 December 2011 earthquake. Other areas were levelled after the most recent earthquake to have affected heights in that area. Heights therefore represent the position of marks accounting for all four substantial Canterbury earthquakes.

These heights are only provisional. Analysis is ongoing as further data is collected.
Heights calculated using SNAP v2.3.64.
Heights were constrained using the pre-earthquake heights at geodetic codes AC9B, AFAQ, AG32 and B853. GNSS observations and modelling indicates that the height change of these marks was negligible.
Some heights were calculated from precise levelling data provided by Christchurch City Council.

These coordinates are suitable for use in surveys and other geospatial activities in Canterbury and Christchurch.

For further information about this dataset, see the Canterbury earthquake information on the LINZ website.

The TNK70-NZVD2016 grid enables the conversion of normal-orthometric heights from the Taranaki 1970 local vertical datum to the New Zealand Vertical Datum 2016 (NZVD2016).

The conversion value is represented by the attribute “O”, in metres.

This conversion and NZVD2016 are formally defined in the LINZ standard LINZS25009.

TNK70-NZVD2016 is published on a two arc-minute grid (approximately 3.6 kilometres) extending over the benchmarks that nominally define the extent of the Taranaki 1970 vertical datum (173.6° E to 176.4° E, 38.3° S to 41.1° S).

The height conversion grid models the difference between the Taranaki 1970 vertical datum and NZVD2016 using the LINZ GPS-levelling marks. From the GPS-levelling marks the expected accuracy of TNK70-NZVD2016 is better than 2 centimetres (95% Confidence interval).

More information on converting heights between vertical datums can be found on the LINZ website.

This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 14 Jun 2013.

The deformation model associated with the NZGD2000 datum was updated, nominally at 1 August 2013. The actual update of LINZ data took place on 14-15 December 2013. This update involved reverse patches, which means that the "reference coordinates" of features were updated. The main updates relate to the Christchurch earthquakes. The patch also updated coordinates affected by other South Island earthquakes since 2000.

These updates have been incorporated into Landonline and resulted in spatial updates to all features in the affected areas.

This data set contains contours indicating the extent and magnitude of the coordinate changes to assist in assessing the impact of this update on client data sets. This dataset is also available as a multipolygon.

Introduction
This dataset provides gravity observations, reductions and metadata for New Zealand’s national airborne gravity survey at flight elevation. A full description of each field in this dataset is available in the accompanying pdf NZ Airborne Gravity Flight Lines at Elevation (2013-2014) Description.

Description
New Zealand’s national airborne gravity dataset is comprised of more than 50,000 linear km of flight observations, covering the three main islands of New Zealand and up to 10km offshore.

Gravity observations can be used to compute gravity anomalies: differences between measured gravity and an ellipsoidal model of the Earth’s gravity field. Gravity anomalies correspond to un-modelled density variations within the Earth’s crust and upper mantle. They are used to investigate concealed geological structures and for quasigeoid modelling.

The national airborne gravity dataset was collected as a joint project between Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), GNS Science (GNS) and Victoria University of Wellington (VUW). The airborne survey was completed in a total of eight months, over two campaigns: August – October 2013, and February – June 2014.

Users may also be interested raster layers created for each of the free-Air and Bouguer Anomalies which have been downward continued to ground surface NZ Airborne Gravity Free-Air Anomalies at Ground Surface (2013-2014) and NZ Airborne Gravity Bouguer Anomalies at Ground Surface (2013-2014).
