The LTN37-NZVD2016 grid enables the conversion of normal-orthometric heights from the Lyttelton 1937 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.
LTN37-NZVD2016 is published on a two arc-minute grid (approximately 3.6 kilometres) extending over the benchmarks that nominally define the extent of the Lyttelton 1937 vertical datum (168.53° E to 174.2° E, 41.3° S to 45.1° S).
The height conversion grid models the difference between the Lyttelton 1937 vertical datum and NZVD2016 using the LINZ GPS-levelling marks. From the GPS-levelling marks the expected accuracy of LTN37-NZVD2016 is better than 2 centimetres (95% Confidence interval).
More information on converting heights between vertical datums can be found on the LINZ website.
