Topographic data is information about the features of the land, and is familiar to us all on maps.
The topographic data available through the LINZ Data Service is sourced directly from the LINZ Topographic database used in the production of the Topo50 map series (1:50,000 scale), Topo250 and Topo500.
The LINZ Data Service provides access to the most current Topo50, Topo250 and Topo500 map information released by LINZ in both digital image (map) and data formats.
For more information see:
- the LINZ Data Service metadata (provided through the service) for a description of the topographic data layers
- the topographic data FAQ.
- The NZTopo Data Dictionary includes a data documentation guide and a dictionary describing objects in the NZTopo database.
