The TNK70-NZGD2000 grid enables the conversion of normal-orthometric heights from the Taranaki 1970 local vertical datum directly to New Zealand Geodetic Datum 2000 (NZGD2000) ellipsoidal heights.
TNK70-NZGD2000 is published on a one arc-minute grid (approximately 1.8 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 conversion value is represented by the attribute “delta”, in metres.
This grid is a combination of New Zealand Quasigeoid 2016 NZGeoid2016 and the TNK70-NZVD2016 height conversion grid. Where NZGeoid2016 is the reference surface for the New Zealand Vertical Datum 2016 (NZVD2016), while the TNK70-NZVD2016 grid models the difference between the Taranaki 1970 vertical datum and NZVD2016 using the LINZ GPS-levelling marks.
More information on converting heights between vertical datums can be found on the LINZ website.

New Zealand Quasigeoid 2016 Raster, provides users with a one arc-minute gridded (approximately 1.8 kilometres) raster image of the New Zealand Quasigeoid 2016 (NZGeoid2016).
The relationship between the GRS80 ellipsoid and the New Zealand Vertical Datum 2016 (NZVD2016) is modelled by [NZGeoid2016] and is represented by the attribute “N”, in metres.(data.linz.govt.nz/layer/3418).
NZVD2016 is formally defined in the LINZ standard LINZS25009.
Users may also be interested in transforming heights to any of the 13 historic local vertical datums used in New Zealand using the appropriate datum relationship grid displayed in the NZ Height Conversion Index.
More information on these transformations is available on the LINZ website.
