This layer identifies critical survey marks which LINZ requires to be physically protected.

Thousands of vital survey marks exist in New Zealand. Many of them are below or at ground level and not noticed by most of us.

People involved in construction work are responsible for making sure survey marks are not damaged. When building works have the potential to destroy existing cadastral and geodetic marks, LINZ needs to be notified so that it can assess whether the marks should be reinstated or replaced. Find out more about looking after the national survey network

Please note there may be other important survey marks not identified on this layer, and that LINZ recommends consultation with a Licensed Cadastral surveyor before any construction or earthworks begin.

If you notice a damaged survey mark, you can report it to LINZ by filling out a form on this website

This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 04 Jul 2020.

This dataset provides information about the position, position accuracy, mark name, mark type, condition and unique four letter code for geodetic marks in terms of a New Zealand's official geodetic datum.

The dataset only contains marks that are within the New Zealand mainland and offshore islands. These positions have been generated using geodetic observations such as precise differential GPS or electronic distance and theodolite angles measurements. The positions are either 2D or 3D depending of the availability of this measurement data.

The source data is from Land Information New Zealand's (LINZ) Landonline system where it is used by Land Surveyors. This dataset is updated daily to reflect changes made in the Landonline.

Accuracy

Geodetic marks with a coordinate order of 5 or less have been positioned in terms of NZGD2000. Lower order marks (order 6 and greater) are derived from cadastral surveys, lower accuracy measurement techniques or inaccurate historical datum transformations, and may be significantly less accurate.

The accuracy of NZGD2000 coordinates is described by a series of 'orders' classifications. Positions in terms of NZGD2000 are described by three-dimensional coordinates (latitude, longitude, ellipsoidal height). The accuracy of a survey mark is indicated by its Order. Orders are classifications based on the quality of the coordinate in relation to the datum and in relation to other surrounding marks. For more information see www.linz.govt.nz/geodetic/datums-projections-heigh...

Note that the accuracy applies at the time the mark was last surveyed. Refer to the web geodetic database for historical information about mark coordinates.

Note also that the existence of a mark in this dataset does not imply that there is currently a physical mark in the ground - the dataset includes destroyed or lost historical marks. The geodetic database provides more information on the mark status, valid at last time it was visited by LINZ or a maintenance contractor.

This dataset was first added to LINZ Data Service on 04 Aug 2016.

The MOT53-NZVD2016 grid enables the conversion of normal-orthometric heights from the Moturiki 1953 local vertical datum to the New Zealand Vertical Datum 2016 (NZVD2016).

The conversion value is represented by the attribute “O”, in metres.

This conversion and NZVD2016 are formally defined in the LINZ standard LINZS25009.

MOT53-NZVD2016 is published on a two arc-minute grid (approximately 3.6 kilometres) extending over the benchmarks that nominally define the extent of the Moturiki 1953 vertical datum (174.5° E to 178.26° E, 36.5° S to 40.7° S).

The height conversion grid models the difference between the Moturiki 1953 vertical datum and NZVD2016 using the LINZ GPS-levelling marks. From the GPS-levelling marks the expected accuracy of MOT53-NZVD2016 is better than 2 centimetres (95% Confidence interval).

More information on converting heights between vertical datums can be found on the LINZ website.

This dataset provides information about the survey control network, position, position accuracy, mark name, mark type, condition and unique four letter code for geodetic marks in terms of New Zealand's official geodetic datum, New Zealand Geodetic Datum 2000 (NZGD2000).

The dataset only contains marks that are within the New Zealand mainland and offshore islands. These positions have been generated using geodetic observations such as precise differential GPS or electronic distance and theodolite angle measurements. The positions are either 2D or 3D depending of the availability of this measurement data.

The source data is from Land Information New Zealand's (LINZ) Landonline system where it is used by Land Surveyors. This dataset is updated daily to reflect changes made in the Landonline.

The mark network is segmented into six control networks which provide control marks for specific purposes. The control_network field within this layer records this network with the 3 or 4 letter abbreviation code as follows:

NRF - National Reference Frame NDMN - National Deformation Monitoring Network RDMN - Regional Deformation Monitoring Network LDMN - Local Deformation Monitoring Network CHN - Cadastral Horizontal Control Network CVN - Cadastral Vertical Control Network BGN - Basic Geospatial Network NHN - National Height Network

Note a geodetic mark can be in more than network. Also not all geodetic marks are currently associated with a geodetic network. Those that are may be referred to as a control mark. For more information about the control networks refer to www.linz.govt.nz/geodetic/geodetic-programme/surve....

This dataset provides information about the position, height, height datum, height accuracy, mark name, mark type, condition and unique four letter identifier for geodetic marks that have an authoritative height in terms of a vertical datum. Heights are in datums defined at www.linz.govt.nz/geodetic/datums-projections-heigh....

All marks will have positions in terms a 3D New Zealand official geodetic datum. The horizontal positions of marks are provided for approximate location purposes only .

This dataset only contains marks that are within the New Zealand mainland and offshore islands. The height data for these marks have been generated using precise levelling from datum tide gauges, or has been acquired by 3rd party sources either as levelling observations or direct heights.

The source data is from Land Information New Zealand's (LINZ) Landonline system where it is used by Land Surveyors. This dataset is updated daily to reflect changes made in the Landonline.

Accuracy

The accuracy of normal-orthometric heights are described by height orders.

For more information see www.linz.govt.nz/geodetic/datums-projections-heigh....

Note the accuracy applies at the time the mark was last surveyed - see the geodetic database for historical information about height coordinates.

The relationship between the GRS80 ellipsoid and the New Zealand Vertical Datum 2016 (NZVD2016) is modelled by the New Zealand Quasigeoid 2016 (NZGeoid2016). The relationship value is represented by the attribute “N”, in metres.

This relationship and NZVD2016 is formally defined in the LINZ standard LINZS25009.

NZGeoid2016 can be used to convert New Zealand Geodetic Datum 2000 (NZGD2000) ellipsoidal heights to NZVD2016 normal-orthometric heights.

The conversion value is represented by the attribute “N”, in metres.

NZGeoid2016 is published on a one arc-minute grid (approximately 1.8 kilometres) over the New Zealand continental shelf (160° E to 170° W, 25° S to 60° S).

NZGeoid2016 was calculated by enhancing the EIGEN-6C4 global gravity model with, terrestrial, ship-track, satellite and airborne gravity data. GPS-levelling observations were not used to compute NZGeoid2016.

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.

The NZGD2000 Government CORS provides the locations of GNSS Continuously Operating Reference Stations operated by GNS Science under the GeoNet project (www.geonet.org.nz). Coordinates are from the LINZ Geodetic Database, in NZGD2000.

These are split into several different networks:

  • PositioNZ - stations predominantly funded by LINZ, with some GeoNet funding. These provide a nationwide coverage of ~120km spacing. More info here
  • GeoNet - stations funded by the GeoNet project. These are located in areas of geophysical interest, usually on the East Coast of the North Island. More info here
  • SAGENZ - stations funded by the University of Otago, GNS Science, MIT, University of Colorado and UNAVCO. These Southern Alps Geodetic Experiment - New Zealand stations are generally semi-continuous sites.
  • Tide Gauge - stations co-located with tide gauges at major ports. Data is managed through the GeoNet project also.

30" RINEX data from all of these sites is available from the GeoNet website

Real Time data is available from all PositioNZ stations, and some GeoNet stations. For more information, see the PositioNZ-RT website

The national airborne gravity dataset is comprised of more than 50,000 linear km of flight observations, covering the three main islands of New Zealand and up to 10km offshore.

This dataset provides a 1 arc minute raster image of the Bouguer anomalies, which have been downward continued to the ground surface (McCubbine et al, 2017).

The national airborne gravity dataset was collected as a joint project between Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), GNS Science (GNS) and Victoria University of Wellington (VUW). The airborne survey was completed in a total of eight months, over two campaigns: August – October 2013, and February – June 2014.

Users may also be interested in other layers created for the free-air anomalies at ground surface and the along track observations from the gravity flight lines at flight elevation NZ Airborne Gravity Free-Air Anomalies at Ground Surface (2013-2014) and NZ Airborne Gravity Flight Lines at Elevation (2013-2014).
