Topographic data

Topographic data is information about the features of the land. We manage the LINZ Topographic database, which helps produce our wide range of topomaps.

The topographic data available through the LINZ Data Service is sourced directly from the LINZ Topographic database. This is also used in the production of the 1:50,000 scale Topo50 map series, as well as the Topo250 and Topo500 series maps.

The LINZ Data Service provides access to the most up-to-date Topo50, Topo250 and Topo500 map information we release. This is available in both digital image (map) and data formats.
