A subset of NationalMap consisting of a combination of historic sites, monuments, and fortification extracted from the LINZ web portal.

The Topographic historic layer consists of the places where there has been historic activity, where there is a historic object, or the structures erected as a memorial can be found in this layer. Also contained are a combination of European fortifications and Maori defensive earthworks extracted from the LINZ web portal. The fortification data consists of: - Redoubt points: European fortification of the New Zealand Wars- Pa points: Defensive earthworks constructed by Maori at any time between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries which were still visible as a topographical object at the time the first edition of the map was published.

A subset of NationalMap consisting of a combination of Water layers extracted from the LINZ web portal.

The combined Water layer consists of the following water body polygons :

  • River: natural, flowing body of water emptying into an ocean, lake or other body of water and usually fed along its course by converging tributaries.
  • Lake: any standing body of fresh inland water.
  • Pond: area of shallow water with walls or banks created for a specific purpose.
  • Reservoir: receptacle in which a large quantity of water is stored - Canal: artificial open waterway used for transportation, waterpower or irrigation.
  • Lagoon: sheet of salt water separated from the open sea by sand, shingle banks or a road embankment.

These layers are a component of the. Topo50 map series. The Topo50 map series provides topographic mapping for the New Zealand mainland, Chatham and New Zealand's offshore islands, at 1:50,000 scale. Further information on Topo50: www.linz.govt.nz/topography/topo-maps/topo50

A subset of NationalMap consisting of Regional Council Administrative Boundaries. These are the largest administration units as legally defined by government. They are released annually on the 1st of January to coincide with the update of meshblocks, but there are not always changes from the previous classification.

Regional Councils were established in November 1989 after the abolition of the 22 local government regions. The Local Government Act 2002 requires the boundaries of regions to conform as far as possible to one or more water catchments. When determining regional boundaries, the Local Government Commission gave consideration to regional communities of interest when selecting water catchments to be included in a region. It also considered factors such as natural resource management, land use planning and environmental matters.

Regional councils are defined at meshblock and area unit level. The seaward boundaries of the Regional Councils are the outer limits of the territorial sea of New Zealand (12 mile limit).

Regional councils cover every territorial authority in New Zealand with the exception of Chatham Islands Territory. Generally regional councils contain complete territorial authorities. Where territorial authorities straddle regional council boundaries, the affected area has been statistically defined in complete area units.

A subset of NationalMap consisting of Riverbeds represented by polygons to display true river width, derived by NationalMap from paper Topographic maps. Greater detail in City areas where applicable. Due to large braided stream networks, a river can often be seen as significantly less than its bed, in the dry season some tracks are located on river beds, these indicate the extent of the river at full capacity.

A subset of NationalMap consisting of the previous release of Territorial Authority (TA) Administrative Boundaries. These are the second-largest administration units after Regional Council areas.

Multiple Territorial Authorities can occur within one Regional council area, and each TA will include multiple area units, meshblocks and postcodes. For Unitary Authorities the seaward boundary is the outer limit of the territorial sea of New Zealand (12 mile limit). A territorial authority is defined under the Local Government Act 2002 as a city council or district council.

Territorial authorities are defined at meshblock and area unit level. The Territorial Authority boundaries and classification are released annually on the 1st of January, and on occasion mid year, but there are not always changes from the previous classification.
