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.

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 information on Topo50: www.linz.govt.nz/topography/topo-maps/topo50

  • Ice: A region of permanent ice
  • Mud: An area of wet, soft earthy matter
  • Rock: Coastal rocks; rocks between high and low tide
  • Sand: Sand, crushed rock, shells etc. smaller than 2mm in size
  • Scree: Mountain slope covered with small stones
  • 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

A subset of NationalMap consisting of 2018 Statistics NZ Meshblock boundaries. Meshblocks are the smallest geographic units of data recognised by Statistics New Zealand. Meshblocks aggregate to build larger geographic areas, such as area units, territorial authorities, and regional councils.

Meshblocks contain on average approximately 150 people and 40 houses. They cover about one city block in urban areas. Some meshblocks do not contain any population.

Meshblocks vary in size from part of a city block to large areas of rural land. Each meshblock abuts another to cover all of New Zealand, extending out to the 200-mile economic zone (approximately 320 kilometres).

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.

This dataset was last updated on NationalMap Data Service on 07 May 2020.

A subset of NationalMap consisting of contextual river features (major rivers and tributaries) represented by polygon objects derived by NationalMap 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.
