NZ Topo - object class grave_pnt

This page describe the grave_pnt object class used to represent objects in the NZTopo topographic database.

Description

A location of one or more graves not within an officially designated cemetery.

Topo50 description

Grave sites were originally captured by surveyors in the field. As they are not always visible on imagery, these features are left unchanged unless more current information becomes available. Where a grave site represented by a grave_pnt feature is located close to a road, the point held in the data and shown on the printed maps may be offset from the road a distance of up to 30m

Data type
Attribute descriptionAttribute values*
name1001
name
string
The name of the feature, where known. Text data from July 2012 will be in UTF-8 format. If your system is not UTF-8 compliant, you will need to use the name_ascii attribute, which has had any macronated vowels removed. UTF-8 stands for Unicode Transformation Format-8. It is an octet (8-bit) lossless encoding of Unicode characters. UTF-8 encodes each Unicode character as a variable number of 1 to 4 octets, where the number of octets depends on the integer value assigned to the Unicode character. It is an efficient encoding of Unicode documents that use mostly US-ASCII characters because it represents each character in the range U+0000 through U+007F as a single octet. UTF-8 is the default encoding for XML.

UFID1000
t50_fid
integer
A unique identifier for use on Topo50 data in the LINZ Data Service. This is not a universal ID. The intention is to manage these ID’s as persistent, however this is not guaranteed and there will be instances where what appears to be a minor change to a feature may result in a new ID being assigned.
