Updates for surveyors - Kaikoura earthquake, New Zealand Vertical Datum 2016 heights

21 November 2016

We’ve made some useful information for surveyors available on our website.

Kaikoura Earthquake

We’ve created a page about surveying in areas affected by the 14 November 2016 Kaikoura earthquake, and the impact it had on our geodetic coordinates.

We’ll update this page as more information becomes available.

Finding New Zealand Vertical Datum 2016 Heights

Heights for more than 44,000 geodetic marks in terms of NZVD2016 (New Zealand Vertical Datum 2016) are now available from Landonline and the geodetic database. This means it will now be much easier for surveyors to connect their surveys to marks in terms of the new national vertical datum.
