New LINZ Datasets Now Available

Nov 16, 2023

Two new Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) datasets are now available through OpenTopography. These datasets are 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. These datasets collectively add almost 4,800 km2 of high resolution topographic data over the Central Otago Region of the South Island (see areas in red in figure below).
