The NSN55-NZGD2000 grid enables the conversion of normal-orthometric heights from the Nelson 1955 local vertical datum directly to New Zealand Geodetic Datum 2000 (NZGD2000) ellipsoidal heights.

NSN55-NZGD2000 is published on a one arc-minute grid (approximately 1.8 kilometres) extending over the benchmarks that nominally define the extent of the Nelson 1955 vertical datum (171.3° E to 174.4° E, 40.4° S to 42.7° 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 NSN55-NZVD2016 height conversion grid. Where NZGeoid2016 is the reference surface for the New Zealand Vertical Datum 2016 (NZVD2016), while the NSN55-NZVD2016 grid models the difference between the Nelson 1955 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.
