We have chosen to focus on four major trends where LINZ can make the biggest difference. We believe these trends will have a wide-ranging impact on LINZ’s activities and operations by 2025. Together they emphasise the increasing need for geographic information to be managed as a national asset.

There are widespread opportunities and need for geographic information:

  1. Increased and more rapid urban intensification
  2. Natural events are growing in frequency and severity
  3. Māori economic development relies on better access to property and land information
  4. Pressure to deliver more sustainable and effective use of Crown land
