This provides a polygon coastline and islands layer which is based on the Topo50 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 and Chatham Islands areas (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.
  3. This was then merged with the NZ Chatham Is island polygons (Topo, 1:50k) that have had the islands within the main island polygon removed, NZ Auckland Is Island Polygons (Topo, 1:50k), NZ Campbell Is / Motu Ihupuku Island, NZ Antipodes Is Island Polygons (Topo, 1:25k), NZ Kermadec Is Island Polygons (Topo, 1:25k), NZ Bounty Is Island Polygons (Topo, 1:25k) and NZ Snares Is / Tini Heke Island Polygons (Topo, 1:25k) layers using a merge tool.

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

This layer is a component of the Topo50 map series. The Topo50 map series provides topographic mapping for New Zealand and it's offshore dependancies, at 1:50,000.
For some small islands the printed map scale is 1:25,000. Although presented at 1:25,000 this layer, for all intents and purposes, forms part of the Topo50 map series.

This polygon layer is provided to assist with identifying the coverage of aerial photography in the Crown Aerial Film Archive. Included surveys were flown on behalf of the Crown and private entities by New Zealand Aerial Mapping between 1936 and 2008.

Note: No historical aerial photos can be directly downloaded from the LINZ Data Service. Photos are provided only upon request (see below).

The footprints in this layer are estimations of the extent of each photograph taken. Positional accuacy will vary and not all photos have associated footprints.

The physical Crown Aerial Film Archive is managed for Toitū Te Whenua LINZ by WSP New Zealand. Nearly all Crown surveys have been scanned and are available digitally upon request. See the Crown Aerial Film Archive historical imagery scanning project for direction on how to access the digitised photos. _ _

Photos not yet digitised can be ordered from WSP NZ for a fee. You will need to provide the survey, run, and photo number (values in the ‘SURVEY’, 'RUN', and 'PHOTO_NO' attributes) for each image in your area of interest. WSP will be able to provide a quote for providing the images in various formats. Contact them at WSP Photo Sales.

The Crown Aerial Film Archive is an amalgamation of surveys flown by New Zealand Aerial Mapping for the Crown and surveys flown for private entities. This layer is updated periodically to reflect the latest imagery digitised and ready for distribution.

This dataset provides boundaries of facilities, currently hospitals and schools, within mainland New Zealand originally sourced in early 2021 from a combination of NationalMap and authoritative sources, including NZ Ministry of Education and NZ Ministry of Health.

A facility represents a particular activity such as a hospital or school. A facility boundary represents the extent of the land which appears to be used by a facility. A facility boundary can be different to corresponding cadastral parcel polygons because a facility can span across multiple parcels or be located in only part of a parcel. For example, a parcel owned by the crown can include multiple schools and other facilities such as parks and reserves.

Facility boundaries in this dataset were used to apply hospital and school building names to the NZ Building Outlines dataset published on the LINZ Data Service.

A more detailed description of NZ Facilities can be found in the NZ Facilities Data Dictionary. This Data Dictionary also includes information on how NZ Facilities was used to support the attribution of NZ Building Outlines.

NZ Facilities contains data sourced from NationalMap, Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health licensed for reuse under CC BY 4.0.

NZ Building Outlines (All Sources) - contains all combinations of building outlines from multiple years of imagery that have existed since the beginning of this dataset, and the dates when each building outline existed in the associated aerial imagery.
