A fundamental element of a geodetic system is a national geodetic datum. To enable data collected in terms of geodetic datum to be portrayed on a map, map projections are required.
This standard defines several map projections in terms of the New Zealand Geodetic Datum 2000. These projections can be used for the provision and display of cadastral, topographic, and hydrographic data for New Zealand, its offshore islands, and continental shelf.
Spatial data provided to and supplied by LINZ must comply with this standard when it is referenced by map coordinates in terms of the NZGD2000 projections.
This standard may be used by other users of spatial data. Any person claiming conformance with this standard must use the parameters defining NZGD2000 map projections as specified in this standard.
