Suitable for cartographic visualisation only. It was created by the interpolation of 20m contours with post-processing and filtering it is not suitable for terrain analysis.

This 8m Digital Elevation Model (DEM) was originally created by Geographx (geographx.co.nz) and was primarily derived from January 2012 LINZ Topo50 20m contours (data.linz.govt.nz/layer/768).

For a full description of the how the DEM was generated refer to this layer’s metadata.

This layer shows the New Zealand mainland sheet extents for the historic NZMS 260 map series.

The NZMS 260 Topographic map series began in 1977 and ended production in 2009. The series was produced at the 1:50,000 scale.

NOTE: The NZMS260 map series has now been superseded by NZTopo50. To download the NZTopo50 Map sheets please refer to NZ Topo50 Mapsheets. For further information and latest editions of Topographic maps for the whole of New Zealand see here

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.

The Topo50 map series provides topographic mapping for the New Zealand mainland and Chatham Islands, at 1:50,000 scale.

This dataset consists of building outlines for the areas of Canterbury, Hawke’s Bay and Waikato, and is part of a pilot to understand the benefit of making building outlines data openly available through the LINZ Data Service.

Building outlines are 2D shapes of the edge of a building as visible from aerial imagery, most commonly the roofline edge. It includes spaces such as decks, garages and porches. Each polygon represents a building outline. The outlines were extracted in June 2016 from orthoimagery using an automated process.

Source imagery
Resolution of the imagery used for capture ranges from 50cm pixel resolution (0.5m GSD) to 10cm pixel resolution (0.1m GSD). Please refer to the ‘imagery_source’ attribute for details.

The following datasets on the LINZ Data Service were used in part or full in the creation of this dataset:
Waikato 0.5m Rural Aerial Photos (2012-2013)
Waikato District 0.1m Urban Aerial Photos (2014)

Note: LINZ and Opus International have recently agreed a contract for the maintenance of the Crown aerial imagery archive, following the liquidation of New Zealand Aerial Mapping in September 2014.

The following Information on product sales has been updated to reflect this.

This layer has been provided to enable potential users to identify the coverage of photography for Mainland NZ flown on behalf of the Crown between 1936 and 2005. Areas flown outside of Mainland NZ will be added later. The original data used to create this layer was compiled prior to 2000 and it is possible that some errors exist in the data fields. If you are aware of any inaccuracies, please contact LINZ: info@linz.govt.nz or +64 4 4600110. The layer shows the extent of each aerial survey undertaken. The 'NZ Aerial Photo Footprints 1936-2005 poly' layer shows the extent of each photograph in the survey.

The Collection exists as photographic negatives (most are not in digital form) so the images are not downloadable from the LDS.

The Crown Aerial Film Negative Collection is managed for LINZ by Opus International.

You can are order images from the Collection from Opus International in a number of formats, including:
- contact prints
- enlargements
- digital files
- precision scans for photogrammetric production
- orthophotos

You will need to tell Opus NZ the survey number (the value in the ‘SURVEY’ attribute) covering your area of interest.

Opus NZ will be able to provide information about the cost of providing images in the various formats. Contact them at: photosales@opus.co.nz or 0800 680 690

There are a small number of images held in the Collection that have not been referenced in the LDS layers due to incomplete metadata. LINZ is currently investigating ways this can be remedied. Opus International will be able to let you know if additional photographs are available in your area of interest.

There are also a large number of images which previously belonged to New Zealand Aerial Mapping and which are now are available for public use. The extents of these may be added to the LDS in future. You can order these images by contacting Opus International.
