When New Zealand Aerial Mapping (NZAM) went into liquidation in September 2014, LINZ took ownership of their historical photo archive and added it to the Crown Aerial Film Archive, making its photos available to the public.

This layer has been provided to enable potential users to identify the coverage of aerial photography for Mainland NZ flown by NZAM for private contract work between 1939 and 2008. These surveys compliment the Crown photos identified in Historic Aerial Photos, Survey Footprints, CROWN (1936-2005) (data.linz.govt.nz/layer/51000-historic-aerial-phot...).

‚ÄčIf you are aware of any inaccuracies, please contact LINZ at topography@linz.govt.nz. This layer shows the approximate bounding box of each aerial survey undertaken.

This layer will not be updated; see NZ Aerial Photo Footprints, Mainland NZ, (1936-2005) (data.linz.govt.nz/layer/51002-nz-aerial-photo-foot...) for the most current information.

The physical Crown Aerial Film Archive is managed for LINZ by WSP New Zealand. Most Crown photographs have been scanned and are available digitally from LINZ upon request. See the Crown Aerial Film Archive historical imagery scanning project (www.linz.govt.nz/about-linz/what-were-doing/projec...) for direction on how to access the digitised photos. The photos are not downloadable from the LINZ Data Service.

There are a small number of images held in the Archive that have not been referenced in the LDS layers due to incomplete metadata. WSP NZ will be able to let you know if additional photographs are available in your area of interest.

In addition to contour lines, relief shading helps visualise the terrain. Hills and valleys are shaded as if they were illuminated from the north-west.

Relief layers were generated for each sheet, and specifically for use in the Topo50 map series. There may be subtle differences in the relief shading of adjacent map sheets. Where no contour information exists, relief shading has not been produced.

The Topo50 map series provides topographic mapping for the New Zealand mainland, the Chatham Islands, and offshore islands at 1:50,000 scale (some of the islands at 1:25,000).

Snares Islands / Tini Heke data and map, although captured and presented at 1:25,000 scale are, to all intents and purposes, part of the Topo50 series.

This provides a polygon coastline and islands layer which is based on the Topo500 products. It is a combination of the following layers:

This topographic coastline is the line forming the boundary between the land and sea, defined by mean high water.

Islands from the NZ Island Polygons layer that lie within the NZ Coastline area (i.e. islands in lakes, rivers and estuaries) have been removed.

The GIS workflow to create the layer is:

  1. NZ Coastlines were converted from a polyline to a polygon using a polyline to polygon tool.
  2. The resulting coastal polygon was then used as an input into an erase tool and run against the NZ Island Polygon layer to remove all islands lying within the NZ Mainland and Stewart Island.

For more detailed description of each layer refer to the layer urls above.
