A subset of Critchlow 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

- Shingle: Crushed rock, shells etc. larger than 2mm in size
- Gravel pit: Area used for the extraction of coarse sand and small water-worn or pounded stones, used for paths and roads
- Landfill: A portion of land on which refuse, solid or semi-solid waste, is dumped and then covered with earth
- Moraine: An accumulation of boulders, stones or other debris carried and deposited by a glacier
- Pumice: Area used for the extraction of pumice

This layer is 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

This dataset was last updated on NationalMap Data Service on 15 Jun 2017.

A subset of Critchlow NationalMap consisting of Riverbeds represented by polygons to display true river width, derived by Critchlow 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 Critchlow 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 Critchlow NationalMap consisting of a combination of vegetation layers extracted from the LINZ web portal.

The combined vegetation layers consists of:

  • Exotic: Land covered by trees not native to New Zealand.
  • Mangrove: Coastal or brackish or saline area covered by specially adapted trees.
  • Native forest: Land covered by trees native to New Zealand.
  • Orchard: Land covered by pip or stone fruit or vegetation.
  • Scrub: Land covered by vegetation less than 3 m high.-Vineyards: Land covered by vines e.g. grapes, kiwifruit etc.

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 Critchlow NationalMap consisting of Territorial Authority Administrative Boundaries. These are the second largest administration units after Regional Council areas.

Multiple TAs 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 limits 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.

This dataset was last updated on NationalMap Data Service on 07 Nov 2018.

A subset of Critchlow NationalMap consisting of contextual river features (major rivers and tributaries) represented by polygon objects derived by Critchlow from paper Topographic maps (mainly LINZ). NB see RiverLine for line and polyline objects

These features indicate the location of rivers. Where significant flow or width and depth of a river is evident these are represented by polygons. Polygon segments are also evident in urban areas to provide a more complete representation. Line networks show rural or highland areas where flow is not significant. Rivers are named where available.

The rivers are each assigned a heirarchy based on the "Strahler" stream order classification, for simplicity, generally only heirarchies of three to eight have been included in this dataset.
