A new lidar dataset covering approximately 290 km2 along the Kapiti Coast of the North Island of New Zealand is now available on OpenTopography. The lidar was captured for the Kapiti Coast District Council by AAM Ltd, with data management and distribution by Toitū Te Whenua Land Information New Zealand (LINZ). This dataset is available through an ongoing collaboration between OpenTopography and LINZ that makes OpenTopography the primary distribution platform for point cloud data collected as part of the LINZ national elevation program.
