LINZ is pleased to release two new pilot datasets on the LINZ Data Service (LDS):
NZ River Name Lines (Pilot)
NZ River Name Polygons (Pilot)
These are the first openly available rivers datasets providing full coverage of mainland New Zealand with names attributed to river geometries. The datasets on the LDS include further details in the metadata and a link to the data dictionary.
This pilot will help us to understand the benefit of combining river names and location, and other potential river data improvements. If you have an interest in this area, we would appreciate you providing us with feedback. A quick online survey can be accessed from the LDS datasets or from here.
