This layer provides metadata about cadastral surveys along with reference points indicating the location of the survey.

A cadastral survey determines and describes the spatial extent (including boundaries) of interest of land within New Zealand. Each survey is allocated a unique reference number (that prior to Landonline included reference to the land district.

This data provides details that identify the type of survey, the purpose, description and key dates relating to the survey.

This layer provides the latest bearing (direction) and/or distance for cadastral boundaries.

When a cadastral survey is undertaken the relationship between boundary and non-boundary marks is ascertained or measured.
• This commonly is in the form or a vector (bearing and distance), but occasionally just one component.
• Some relationships are defined as arcs. In this data layer, the arc length is recorded in the distance field and a separate record holds the chord.

Only observations that have been captured in Landonline are available. This includes vectors that were re-captured in the Survey Capture Areas from survey plans lodged prior to Landonline and all survey observations since.

This layer provides survey mark information for marks that are not part of a parcel

A non-boundary mark is any survey mark that is not on a boundary point. The points in this dataset represent physical survey monuments usually placed for cadastral requirements. The data set also includes geodetic marks. Non-boundary marks now enter the Landonline system predominately as part of a cadastral survey dataset (plan) and occasionally via the geodetic processes. For Cadastral marks (i.e.the majority) its name consists of a mark type and number (and is unique to that survey), followed by the ‘plan’ number e.g. IS I DP 3456; IS II DP3456.

Note:
Non-boundary marks used to connect cadastral surveys to the geodetic network are those of 6th order (or better) and this subset is available as the NZ Cadastral Survey Network Marks layer.

This dataset extends the Landonline stored data by including the network accuracy which is based upon its assigned Landonline order - refer LINZS25006 (www.linz.govt.nz/about-linz/news-publications-and-...).

The accuracy provided relates to the accuracy of coordinates of the mark and has little relevance to the accuracy of the boundary in relation to other boundaries. For example, if the coordinates of the mark were used to locate it, a user would expect to find the existing mark within the accuracy (distance) stated.

This layer provides all marks and associated information that have an order of 6 or better.
Cadastral surveys are required to connect to these marks if they are within a specified distance.

A cadastral survey network mark is a node which is (or was) occupied by a physical survey monument that meets accuracy standards suitable for cadastral requirements. i.e. Cadastral Survey Network Marks have a NZGD2000 horizontal coordinate order of 6 or better. The complete definition for these mark orders is defined by the following Standard.
"www.linz.govt.nz/survey-titles/cadastral-surveying..."

When a new cadastral survey network mark is named as part of a cadastral survey dataset (plan) its name consists of a mark type and number that is unique to that survey, followed by the plan number e.g. IS I DP 3456; IS II DP3456.

This layer provides all authoritative arc survey observations and is targeted at cadastral surveyors.

Only observations that have been captured in Landonline are available. This includes vectors that were re-captured in the Survey Capture Areas from survey plans lodged prior to Landonline and all survey observations since.

Individual cadastral surveys will commonly re-measure or re-use cadastral lines. Often they will be the same, however as the accuracy capability has increased over time, differences between 'old' and 'new' observations are more likely. Thus all survey observations include the reference to the Survey Plan.

This layer provides the latest captured boundary mark information that defines existing parcel boundaries and associated information such as the mark name.

A boundary mark is on a node which defines the boundaries of primary parcels or non primary parcels.

Not all boundary points have a physical monument (e.g. a peg) placed. In this case the boundary mark is recorded as “unmarked”

This dataset extends the Landonline stored data by including the network accuracy which is based upon its assigned Landonline order - refer LINZS25006 (www.linz.govt.nz/about-linz/news-publications-and-... ).

The accuracy provided relates to the accuracy of coordinates of the mark and has little relevance to the accuracy of the boundary in relation to other boundaries. For example, if the coordinates of the mark were used to locate it, a user would expect to find the existing mark within the nominal accuracy (distance) stated.

This layer provides the extents of the data incorporated into an adjustment which has been completed as a Wide Area Cadastral Adjustment (WACA). These adjustments are undertaken in areas where there is already substantial survey-accurate data, but there are some inconsistencies in the data resulting from small changes to geodetic control coordinates and/or the progressive submission of additional Cadastral Survey Datasets (CSDs). The improvement of coordinates is controlled by a mathematical adjustment process using a Least Squares methodology. The adjustment/integration process results in increased mapping accuracy of surrounding spatial objects (e.g. parcels), the effect of which is some new observations or parcels appear to move. The extent of the change largely depends upon the accuracy of the underlying data. In general, movements will be no more than 10cm, as the WACAs target areas where coordinates already have fairly high spatial accuracy.

This layer provides the extents of influence that the work to integrate survey information has on the surrounding Cadastre.

All cadastral surveys must be integrated into the Cadastre. As part of this process the new information 'upgrades' the existing information. This is controlled by a mathematical adjustment process using a Least Squares methodology.

The adjustment/Integration process results in increased mapping accuracy of surrounding spatial objects (e.g. parcels), the effect of which is some new observations or parcels appear to move. The extend of the change largely depends upon the size of the new survey, the difference in accuracy between new and old data and the number of linkages to other Surveys.

In general, where the underlying surveys are older or in a rural location the greater the extent of the adjustment.

Individual cadastral surveys will commonly re-measure or re-use cadastral lines. Often they will be the same, however as the accuracy capability has increased over time, differences between 'old' and 'new' observations are more likely. Thus all survey observations include the reference to the survey plan.

This dataset only contains right-line survey observations. A small fraction of the total number of survey observations are defined as arcs and are provided via the Survey Arc Chords layer.

This layer provides the extents of the data incorporated into an adjustment which has been completed as part of the Spatial Parcel Improvement (SPI) project. The SPI project aims to improve the accuracy of digital cadastral data in areas (primarily rural) where survey-accurate data does not currently exist. The improvement of coordinates is controlled by a mathematical adjustment process using a Least Squares methodology. The adjustment/integration process results in increased mapping accuracy of surrounding spatial objects (e.g. parcels), the effect of which is some new observations or parcels appear to move. The extent of the change largely depends upon the accuracy of the underlying data. In general, movements will be at least several metres, as the SPI project targets areas where significant movements are expected.
