Access LiDAR Data

Equator is pleased to announce the launch of the Tauranga LiDAR dataset in Equator. The Tauranga LiDAR data set covers approximately 16,800ha and was collected in 2015. This high-resolution elevation data, provided through Equator, provides significant capabilities for city builders, such as civil engineers, architects and construction professionals.

The Tauranga LiDAR dataset has been launched in entwine format on the Equator platform, allowing LiDAR point cloud data to be streamed to the user online in real-time. This is consistent with Equator’s mission to improve access to and usability of high-resolution elevation data.

ABOUT THE TAURANGA LIDAR DATA SET

The Tauranga LiDAR dataset is managed by the Land Information New Zealand, and published by Aerial Surveys in 2015. The data set contains 1 pulse per meter. The estimated accuracy of the LiDAR is 1m resolution.

The Tauranga LiDAR data set can also be accessed using the Equator platform. Equator enables users to view the LiDAR point cloud online, take measurements and cross sections, and design directly with the data online. Equator can also be used to generate smooth contours, digital elevation models (DEMs), Digital Terrain Models (DTMs), 3D printable meshes (STLs), and point file exports (LAZ).
