August 2015 Topographic Data Release Notes

This release comprises selected updates to 29 Mainland Topo50 sheets and 4 High-Vis Topo50 sheets. A total of 33 sheets updated.

The selected update to sheet BD37 Tauranga includes the new Tauranga Eastern Link toll road which was open to traffic on Monday 3 August.

The titles for the selected updates in this release were driven by the requirement to reprint stocks where the current paper map edition was running low. 

We aim to print only new editions of paper maps; where stock predictions and data availability permit, the sheet will undergo a HighVis update, and at minimum selected key features will be updated.

Contours

No changes were made to the Topo50 contour features, so these have not been included in this release

Schema changes

Topo Feature IDs, t250_fid and t50_fid, have been added to NZ Topo250, Chatham Island Topo250, and Chatham Island Topo50 data downloaded from the LDS. These IDs are not available from data downloaded from the Map Chooser.

The Topo Feature ID is a unique identifier for use on Topo50 and Topo250 data, but is not a universal ID. The intention is to manage these ID’s as persistent, however this is not guaranteed and there will be instances where what appears to be a minor change to a feature may result in a new Topo Feature ID being assigned.

The LDS changeset service will include NZ Topo250 and Chatham Island data when these products are included in a subsequent release some time in the future. The changeset service is already available for NZ Topo50 data.

Topographic Data Dictionary changes

The Data Dictionary has been updated to include documentation of the Topo Feature ID, the new attribute rna_sufi, and other minor changes.

Details regarding the entire history of changes.
