October 2015 Topographic Data Release Notes

This release comprises full data maintenance for 3 Topo50 sheets; and selected updates (of various types) to a further 44; and selected updates to 3 Topo250 sheets. A total of 50 sheets updated.

Of note in this release are:

  • the lake in the Dart River formed by a landslide in 2014 has been added from recently acquired imagery.
  • the new edition of BX23 illustrates the growth of Christchurch suburbs like Rolleston.
  • a number of recently formed biking/walking tracks have been added, for example the Waikato River Trail.

Details regarding the entire history of changes to Topo50.

Details regarding the entire history of changes to Topo250.

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

Some minor changes were made to the Topo50 contour features; these have been included in this release.

Trigs

Beaconed trig stations are shown on Topo50 paper and raster maps. The location of these trigs is taken from the LINZ Geodetic Database and filtered to only those with a 2m high structure and larger.

The filter excludes beacons with a type of NFND (not found). The NFND type does not necessarily mean that the beacon does not exist (though it is likely). Should users of Topo50 maps have personal knowledge or come across a beaconed trig station that is not shown on the latest map, please can you let us know.

For information about all the geodetic marks in New Zealand, the Chatham Islands, and Antarctica; or to download data, use the LINZ Geodetic Database.

Schema Changes

The one remaining flume_pnt feature was removed during the update of BY20; so this layer is not in current use.
