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. It shows the extent of each photograph taken from the CROWN archive.

Historic Aerial Photos, Survey Footprints, CROWN (1936-2005) shows the extent of each CROWN survey undertaken.

Some photos from the NZAM archive may also appear in this layer. The Historic Aerial Photos, Survey Footprints, NZAM (1939-2008) shows the extent of each NZAM survey undertaken

See The Crown historic aerial photo archive scanning project for information about the scanning project.

How to Access Photos:
The photos are not downloadable from the LINZ Data Service.

Scanned photos from the partner regions may be viewed and downloaded from Retrolens.

The Crown Aerial Film Negative Collection is managed for LINZ by WSP Opus International. For photos not scanned yet, you can order images from the Collection from Opus NZ in a number of formats, including:

  • contact prints
  • enlargements
  • digital files
  • precision scans for photogrammetric production
  • orthophotos

You will need to tell Opus International the survey, run and photo number (values in the ‘SURVEY’ 'RUN' and 'PHOTO_NO' attributes) 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 also a large number of images which previously belonged to New Zealand Aerial Mapping and which are now are available for public use. Historic Aerial Photos, Survey Footprints, NZAM (1939-2008) shows the extent of each survey undertaken. You can order these photos by contacting Opus NZ.

This provides a polygon coastline and islands layer which is based on the Topo50 products. It is a combination of the following layers:

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.
  4. Lake Onoke from the NZ Lake Polygons (Topo 1:50k) layer and Te Whanga Lagoon from the NZ Chatham Is lagoon polygons (Topo, 1:50k) layer were then erased from the resultant polygon layer to include these two water bodies in the coastline definition.

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

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

This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 15 Oct 2018.

This layer only contains those place names that have a line geometry captured for them.
For the complete list of place names see NZ Place Names.

The Place Names Gazetteer contains official and unofficial place names under the jurisdiction of the New Zealand Geographic Board Ngā Pou Taunaha o Aotearoa (NZGB). Official place names are those that have been assigned, altered, adopted, approved, and validated under the NZGB Act 2008 or through other statutes that assign official names, for example, Treaty settlement legislation. Unofficial place names are those that have not been processed under the NZGB Act 2008 or through other relevant statutes.

Data is extracted from Land Information New Zealand’s (LINZ) ‘New Zealand Gazetteer of Official Geographic Names’, which is maintained by the NZGB Secretariat.

Geographical coverage encompasses New Zealand, the Ross Dependency of Antarctica, and the Continental Shelf of New Zealand.

The NZGB has naming jurisdiction over:

  • natural features such as mountains, peaks, valleys, glens, forests, lagoons, swamps, creeks, streams, rivers, fords, lakes, glaciers or ice features, bays, islands or harbours (including man-made features of the same type)

  • railways or railway stations, but not railway features such as marshalling yards, transfer sites, or track point locations

  • places, i.e. cities, towns, villages, sites, areas, or similar places, including suburbs and localities

  • undersea features

  • Crown protected areas

  • Districts and regions (altering only if requested by the local authority)

Each geographic feature has one or more place names associated with it. Place names usually comprise two components – ‘specific’, being for the proper noun, and ‘generic’, being a description of the geographic feature type.

Information provided for each place name may include: name; name status (whether official or unofficial); geographic feature type; authority by which an official name became official; district within which the name is located; geographic location; reference information; history/origin/meaning; and additional notes. Not all information is available for all names.

Positional accuracy is generally the same as 1:50K mapping. Information accuracy reflects information at the time of original capture.

Please read: This layer provides linear geometries against which official road names and street addresses can be recorded. Its purpose is also to enable automated meshblock address reports (for electoral and statistical purposes) so as to identify the presence of a road name in meshblocks where street addresses do not exist.

A linear geometry in this layer will consist of the individual road section geometries (as opposed to the NZ Roads (Addressing) layer where these have been aggregated). This layer has been simplified from LINZ’s NZ Roads database, a centralised database for the management of national road data. The comprehensive set of NZ Roads tables is also available.

These road centrelines do not represent actual road formation, nor do they represent legal access. They must not be considered as topographic, cadastral, or legal.

Some road sections have multiple names; in these cases the non-primary road names are held in additional columns against each road section.

This layer contains the core attributes of a road section to support simple searching with locality and territorial authority or provide a road name context for cadastral data views. This layer is a replacement for the NZ Road Centre Line Subsections (Electoral) layer.

The Electoral road and address datasets will be available until May 2017 to allow users further time to transition.

Please refer to the NZ Roads Data Dictionary for detailed metadata and information about this layer.

Please read: This is the table for Road Section Geometry, which is part of the set of NZ Roads tables. The Road Section Geometry table stores the linear geometry for the associated road section, or part of the associated road section.

The NZ Roads dataset includes eight data tables and eleven lookup tables. The dataset has been sourced from LINZ’s NZ Roads database, a database for the management of national roads, including those managed for addressing purposes. This set of normalised tables replaces the Landonline: Road Centre Line layer and the Landonline: Road Name and Landonline: Road Name Association tables currently published on LDS.

These centrelines are required to indicate the presence of an authoritative road name. Named centrelines are not intended to represent the exact location of a road formation. Named centrelines do not indicate the presence of legal access.

For a simplified version of the data contained within these tables see NZ Roads (Addressing), which aggregates geometries based on road name, and NZ Roads Subsections (Addressing), which holds the individual geometries.

Please refer to the NZ Roads Data Dictionary for detailed metadata and information about this layer.
