Access LiDAR Data

Equator is pleased to announce the launch of the Westport LiDAR dataset in Equator. The Westport LiDAR dataset covers all of Westport, the surrounding coast and mountains. It was collected in 2020. This high-resolution elevation data, provided through Equator, provides significant capabilities for city builders, such as civil engineers, architects and construction professionals.

The Westport, New Zealand 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 WESTPORT LIDAR DATA SET

The Westport, New Zealand LiDAR dataset is managed by the Land Information New Zealand, and was captured by Aerial Surveys. The data set contains 4 pulses per square meter LiDAR collected in 2020.

The Westport LiDAR data set can be accessed via the LINZ Data Catalog, including the following data products: ortho-imagery, LiDAR, and 1 meter contours derived from the LiDAR.

The Westport, New Zealand 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).
