This dataset was first added to LINZ Data Service on 29 Oct 2020.

This dataset defines the Mean High Water coastline of New Zealand and offshore islands at a scale of 1:50,000, and describes the type of coast along the coastline, for example, steep coast, mangrove, or stony shore.

Purpose
The NZ Coastline – Mean High Water dataset is the first step towards improving the national coastline data for New Zealand. LINZ is currently working on a long-term project, “Coastal Mapping” to capture a range of national coastlines derived from LiDAR and bathymetry. This will enable us to generate coastlines, for example, for Mean High Water Springs, Chart Datum and Highest Astronomical Tide. The project is currently focused on capturing LiDAR and bathymetry data, and the timeframe for delivering the new coastlines will be established once the data capture has progressed.

Status
This dataset was created from LINZ Hydrographic and Topographic sources in August 2020 and will not be maintained in this form. This dataset will be replaced by a more accurate dataset in the future once data becomes available through the Coastal Mapping project.

Data sources and preparation
The spatial coastline data (1:50,000 scale) is sourced from the Topo50 series where it is described as a line forming the boundary between the land and sea, defined by mean high water. The source polygon data has been broken up into line segments to enable a coastal classification to be attributed to each segment of coast. Coastal classification data is based on official Electronic Navigational Charts published by the New Zealand Hydrographic Authority. Not all segments have been assigned a coastal category.

A structure on top of a hill, usually coloured black and white, used as a physical reference point by surveyors to determine location. The symbol shown on the map includes the elevation and trig identification code for beaconed trig stations.
These topographic trig points are derived from New Zealand geodetic marks data which can also be accessed through the LINZ Data Service: NZ Geodetic Marks and NZ Geodetic Vertical Marks.

Suitable for cartographic visualisation only. It was created by the interpolation of 20m contours with post-processing and filtering it is not suitable for terrain analysis.

This 8m Digital Elevation Model (DEM) was originally created by Geographx (geographx.co.nz) and was primarily derived from January 2012 LINZ Topo50 20m contours (data.linz.govt.nz/layer/768).

For a full description of the how the DEM was generated refer to this layer’s metadata.

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

This topographic coastline is the line forming the boundary between the land and sea, defined by mean high water.

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.

In addition to contour lines, relief shading helps visualise the terrain. Hills and valleys are shaded as if they were illuminated from the north-west.

Relief layers were generated for each sheet, and specifically for use in the Topo50 map series. There may be subtle differences in the relief shading of adjacent map sheets.

The Topo50 map series provides topographic mapping for the New Zealand mainland and Chatham Islands, at 1:50,000 scale.
