NZ Topo - object class snow_poly
This page describe the snow_poly object class used to represent objects in the NZTopo topographic database.
A region of permanent snow.
Permanent snow and ice is defined as that which remains after the summer thaw. Areas of ice and snow were defined by the Department of Science and Industrial Research (DSIR) during the mid 1980âs over the entire country. Some areas have been updated from studies undertaken at the University of Otago . To keep the database in line with international entity specifications areas of snow and ice will be captured using both snow_poly and ice_poly objects
Only those areas significant by their size are held in the Topo250 data and shown on the Topo250 printed maps; these are a generalised subset of those shown on the Topo50 series
