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...).

​If 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.

This dataset was first added to LINZ Data Service on 06 Aug 2019.

This dataset provides river name lines for mainland New Zealand. It is part of a pilot to understand the benefit of combining river names and location, and making these openly available through the LINZ Data Service.

Unnamed rivers are also included in this dataset.

How this data can be used

Together with the NZ River Name Polygons (Pilot) dataset, these are the first openly available datasets with NZ river names attributed to geometry features (lines and polygons). This data can be used for searching for a named river and zooming to its extents, extracting geometries of a named river, creating digital cartographic products displaying river names, and analysing other features against named rivers (e.g. identifying buildings or properties within a specified distance of a particular river).

Data vintage

The river names and extents in this dataset are based on the cartographic text shown on NZ Topo50 maps as of December 2018, and are an approximation and should not be taken as official. Further details are included in the 'Naming Extents Methodology' section in the 'Lineage' of this metadata.
Please refer to the NZ River Name Lines and Polygons (Pilot) Data Dictionary for detailed metadata and information about this dataset.

Related data

NZ River Name Polygons (Pilot) - contains larger rivers captured as polygon features instead of lines.

We recommend using the two river name datasets with the following NZ Topo50 layers for connectivity and visualisation of inland hydrographic features.

The NZ River Name Lines and Polygons (Pilot) Data Dictionary provides details on how to download the matching time period snapshots of this data.

Please note

  • Official geographic names as listed in the New Zealand Gazetteer of place names must be used in all official documents as per the New Zealand Geographic Board (Ngā Pou Taunaha o Aotearoa) Act 2008.

  • This pilot dataset is unlikely to be updated, however feedback will be used for future enhancements to LINZ river datasets.

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.
