LINZ Geodetic database

No Change to Coordinates following Te Araroa Earthquake

No immediate change to geodetic coordinates is needed following the Te Araroa earthquake on Friday 2 September 2016. Analysis of data collected by LINZ and GNS science shows that onshore ground movements caused by the earthquake were less than a centimetre.

Preparing PositioNZ-RT for Multi-GNSS – can you connect?

We are taking advantage of the new satellite positioning systems now available in New Zealand by providing the RTCM 3.2 MSM (Multiple Signal Messages) format which offers faster and more accurate positioning. It will eventually replace the current format across the network.

Can you connect to the new format? We want to know?

Let us know before 30 September on the feedback form or read more about the change.

The Geodetic Database can be used to search for and download information about 124312 geodetic marks in New Zealand, the Chatham Islands, and Antarctica.

The database can be accessed by searching on a map or by using a text only version. The geodetic database is also available on Apple mobile devices. The Android geodetic mark app is currently under redevelopment to be compatible with modern Android operating systems. It is expected to be released in mid 2016.
