The LGGA, along with Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), Walking Access Commission and Department of Conservation have been working together to develop a National Data Model for 'Walking and Cycling Tracks data'.
The purpose of this project was to create a national dataset of tracks data that is available for the public to use. This national dataset is coordinated by LINZ and ultimately used in the 1:50,000 LINZ maps.
The wider intention of this project is to:
Review current collaboration between agencies at a local, regional and national level, and identify potential improvements
Develop a central data repository
Create a method for councils to easily update national datasets
ACCESS THE NATIONAL TRACKS DATA
Download the national tracks dataset from the LINZ Data Service. This data is not in the national data model format due to the limitations of LDS. To transfer from LDS to LGGA data schema, please refer to the mapping document.
Access the national tracks dataset from the Walking Access Commission service. This data is available as a service, and uses the LGGA tracks data model.
