Aerial imagery

Aerial imagery can be accessed through the LINZ Data Service.

LINZ has been working towards getting New Zealand’s most current publicly-owned aerial imagery – covering 95% of the country, freely available to use under an open licence through the LINZ Data Service.

Aerial imagery is captured from airborne sensors and cameras. It provides an accurate photographic representation of the earth’s surface and the features on it. It can be used to visualise landscape, or to understand how an area has evolved over time.

The LINZ Data Service provides access to:

NZ Aerial Imagery Basemap

LINZ's basemaps services allow you to embed the NZ Aerial Imagery basemap, or individual aerial photos, into your web, mobile or GIS application.
