The LINZ images  in this collection have been sourced from the Crown archive at NZAM Napier and scanned into high resolution .tif files. Some of the images have degraded over time prior to scanning and contain defects such as scratches and burn marks. 

This map and map service is a result of a esri mosaic built from those films. Every care was taken to georeference the tiles as best you can, but an auditing process and other work to finish this work has not been completed. 


Some films have degraded over time and have burn marks / scratches etc.

This early release has been done before an auditing and final checking process to help Environment Canterbury and its partners use this information in the Canterbury Recovery process.

  • Accuracy estimation to be calculated

NOTE: Not to be used as a base for measurement. Inaccuracies occur.
