This dataset contains NZ Topo50 vector layers related to relief that are available through the LINZ Data Service.

This grouping of NZ Topo50 layers will allow you to quickly view and download this collection of related layers. Topo50 vector datasets are also available for layers covering the themes of hydrography, labels, landcover, structure, transport and vegetation. See all available Topographic Sets.

See the Topographic Data Dictionary for detailed information about each NZ Topo50 layer, and ourbackground information on Topo50 to understand this data.
