Historic NZGD2000 & RSRGD2000 Orders

These Orders were superseded in May 2010.

Find out about current coordinate Orders.

Until May 2010 NZGD2000 and RSRGD2000 coordinates were described by a system of Orders that were based on the quality of the coordinate, and the role of the survey mark in the development of the geodetic control and cadastral survey framework.

Orders 0 to 5 had different horizontal and vertical accuracy tolerances (as specified below). For Orders 6 to 10 the horizontal and vertical tolerances were the same.

Orders 0 to 7 were considered to be survey accurate and the accuracy defined the relative accuracy between marks. Orders 6 and 7 were applied to Landonline survey accurate cadastral traverse and boundaries respectively. The accuracy defined for Orders 8-10 was indicative only.

Orders 6-7 were not used for marks in the RSRGD2000.

This Order scheme was replaced when the Standards for the Geospatial Accuracy Framework (LINZS25005) and for Tiers, Classes and Orders of LINZ Data (LINZS25006) came into effect in May 2010.
