The Lyttelton 1937 to NZVD2016 Conversion Raster provides users with a two arcminute (approximately 3.6 kilometres) raster image of the conversion of normalorthometric heights from the Lyttelton 1937 local vertical datum to the New Zealand Vertical Datum 2016 (NZVD2016). The conversion value is represented by the attribute “O”, in metres. This conversion and NZVD2016 are formally defined in the LINZ standard [LINZS25009](http://www.linz.govt.nz/regulatory/25009). The height conversion grid models the difference between the Lyttelton 1937 vertical datum and NZVD2016 using the LINZ GPSlevelling marks. From the GPSlevelling marks the expected accuracy is better than 2 centimetres (95% Confidence interval). More information on converting heights between vertical datums can be found [on the LINZ website](http://www.linz.govt.nz/data/geodeticservices/coordinateconversion/convertingbetweennzvd2016nzgd2000andlocalverticaldatums).

The STI77NZGD2000 grid enables the conversion of normalorthometric heights from the Stewart Island 1977 local vertical datum directly to New Zealand Geodetic Datum 2000 (NZGD2000) ellipsoidal heights.

The conversion value is represented by the attribute “delta”, in metres. This grid is a combination of New Zealand Quasigeoid 2016 [NZGeoid2016](https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/3418) and the [STI77NZVD2016](https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/3442) height conversion grid.

The deformation model associated with the NZGD2000 datum was updated, nominally at 1 August 2013. The actual update of LINZ data took place on 1415 December 2013. This update involved reverse patches, which means that the "reference coordinates" of features were updated. The main updates relate to the Christchurch earthquakes. The patch also updated coordinates affected by other South Island earthquakes since 2000. These updates have been incorporated into Landonline and resulted in spatial updates to all features in the affected areas. This data set contains contours indicating the extent and magnitude of the coordinate changes to assist in assessing the impact of this update on client data sets. This dataset is also available as a [multipolygon](http://data.linz.govt.nz/#/layer/1685nzgd2000deformationmodelversion20130801reversepatchcoordinateshiftsfilledcontours/).

Coordinates computed from surveys undertaken after the 14 February 2016 Canterbury earthquake. These should be consistent with any observations made after this earthquake (neglecting any localised deformation such as that due to liquefaction). **For further information about this dataset, see [the Canterbury earthquake information](http://www.linz.govt.nz/land/surveying/canterburyearthquakes/geodeticsurveycontrolnetwork).** These coordinates are only provisional. Analysis is ongoing as further data is collected. Coordinates were calculated using SNAP v2.5.33. Stations were constrained using coordinates of distant PositioNZ continuous GNSS stations that were unaffected by the earthquake. The standard deviations of coordinates are 0.01m horizontally and 0.02m vertically, relative to the PositioNZ network. Coordinate changes due to the earthquake have been calculated by comparing pre and postearthquake coordinates. Preearthquake coordinates were calculated relative to public and private continuous GNSS stations. These continuous GNSS stations had data processed for several days early in 2016 (before the earthquake). Other preearthquake geodetic data was then readjusted with the continuous GNSS data. Note that this means these coordinate changes may differ slightly from those that would be calculated by comparing the postearthquake coordinates with those currently in the Geodetic Database. These coordinates are suitable for use in surveys and other geospatial activities in Canterbury and Christchurch.
