Kaikoura Earthquake Coordinate update

11 January 2018

This weekend, Sunday 14 January 2018, coordinates within Landonline will be updated to account for the movements caused by the 2016 Kaikoura Earthquake. It was initially scheduled for December 2017 but was postponed due to minor deployment issues and the close proximity to Christmas.

The update will be completed outside of Landonline hours so will not affect normal operating hours.

The changes will follow through to the Geodetic Database on Monday 15 January and to the LINZ Data Service on Monday 22 January 2018.
