  • This dataset provides a seamless cloud-free 10m resolution satellite imagery layer of the New Zealand mainland and offshore islands. The imagery was captured by the European Space Agency Sentinel-2 satellites between December 2016 - December 2017. **We want your feedback** Data has been made available by LINZ on a pilot basis to help LINZ assess the value of ongoing release of satellite imagery. Use the data, then [send us your feedback](https://landinformationnz.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3syxODJTsq8bpVb) **Currency** This data will be updated once a year, during the term of the 2-year pilot. **Technical specifications** It comprises 450 x ortho-rectified RGB GeoTIFF images in NZTM projection, tiled into the LINZ Standard 1:50,000 tile layout. - Satellite sensors: ESA Sentinel-2A and Sentinel-2B - Acquisition dates: December 2016 - December 2017 - Spectral resolution: R, G, B - Spatial resolution: 10 meters - Radiometric resolution: 8-bits (downsampled from 12-bits) This is a visual product only. The data has been downsampled from 12-bits to 8-bits, and the original values of the images have been modified for visualisation purposes. If you require the 12-bit imagery (R, G, B, NIR bands), send your request to eo@linz.govt.nz

  • This index enables you to identify the locations of current and historic sea level stations around New Zealand, on offshore islands (including Raoul Island, Chatham Islands and the sub-Antarctic islands), several South West Pacific islands and the Ross Dependency (Antarctica). The attributes attached to each location will enable you to look up tidal levels, obtain relationships between tidal and land-based height datums, access tide predictions on LINZ’s website and find out how much sea level data LINZ has in its archive. See the LINZ website for official [tide predictions](https://www.linz.govt.nz/sea/tides/tide-predictions). View the attached data dictionary for detailed information about the attributes of this dataset. **Accessing sea level data** The data that is used to calculate tide predictions is also available. You can access publically available sea level data where a URL is provided in the data_link column. For other locations, requests for sea level data should be sent to customersupport@linz.govt.nz with “Sea Level Data” in the subject line. Requests must, as a minimum, specify the location and time period that the data is required for. Publically funded data can be released to the public under a Creative Commons licence for reuse. The provision of sea level data funded by third parties may be subject to some delay, as LINZ must obtain permission from the data owner. The owner may also attach conditions to the release of their data.

This dataset is the supplementary geological boundaries data for New Zealand. Supplemetary geological boundaries are those that form boundaries to the geological polygons but are not true geological contacts (e.g. the low water mark or limit of ice/snow which indicate the limit of mapping) or are true geological contacts but are extenions of mapped contacts beneath an overlying unit (and are therefore not in the same mapping frame as the standard geological contacts). The dataset is a product of the QMAP Geological Map of New Zealand Project and was produced by GNS Science. It represents the most current mapping of contacts between geological units for New Zealand in a single dataset at a scale of 1:250 000. The dataset is stored in an ESRI vector geodatabase and exported to ArcGIS Server. The dataset comprises arcs with each arc having attributes describing the type of contact, its accuracy and exposure. The data structure complies with the GeoSciML 4.1 standard for ContactView and uses the relevant CGI Controlled Vocabularies. The mapping frame is defined as 'base of overlying geology'. The data should not be used at scales beyond that for which it was prepared. The spatial accuracy is estimated to be no better than +/- 250 m. The dataset is available for purchase as feature classes in ESRI file geodatabase and shapefile GIS formats.

This dataset is the resources data for New Zealand. The dataset is a product of the QMAP Geological Map of New Zealand Project and was produced by GNS Science. It represents a slightly updated selection of the data available from the Geological Resource Map of New Zealand (GERM) dataset. The dataset is stored in an ESRI vector geodatabase and exported to ArcGIS Server. The dataset comprises points with each point having attributes describing the type of site and the commodity. The data structure complies with the GeoSciML 4.1 standard where relevant and uses the appropriate CGI Controlled Vocabularies. The mapping frame is defined as 'surface geology'.
