Elevation data captured as part of LINZ’s role in the coordination of national LiDAR is being made freely available through the LINZ Data Service as 1m Digital Elevation Models and the source point cloud data for the following areas:

Capture and supply of data from the areas below is in progress and will be made available on the LINZ Data Service in the future:

LiDAR base specification

This specification provides a foundation for New Zealand public sector LiDAR procurements. It sets minimum standards to ensure that high quality LiDAR point cloud data and digital elevation models are suitable for inclusion in the Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) led National Elevation Programme to facilitate easier discovery and access through central data management. Data captured under this specification will contribute to the National Elevation Model consisting of a bare earth digital elevation model (DEM), a digital surface model (DSM), and the corresponding classified point cloud.
