Land Information New Zealand

Land Information New Zealand

Land Information New Zealand is connecting geographic information into a national spatial data infrastructure for New Zealand. A spatial data infrastructure can be broadly defined as a network of components that allows people to find, share and use spatial data. This includes topographic maps and nautical charts, property information, and aerial imagery. Most of our information is available for free online in readily reusable formats through the LINZ Data Service. We champion sharing and exchange of public information through the New Zealand Open Government Information and Data Programme and our role in promoting a national infrastructure for geographic information.

The LINZ Vision is accompanied by an Outcomes Framework consisting of four high-level outcomes:

  • High-value geographic and property information
    Geographic and property information are used effectively to deliver value for New Zealand.
  • World-class property system
    The property system is ready for the future, built for growth and changing needs.
  • Making best use of the Crown Estate
    Getting the best public value from the Crown Estate, for the benefit of all New Zealanders.
  • Safeguard New Zealand’s interest in sensitive assets
    Ownership of sensitive assets reflects New Zealand’s best interests.
