Lidar was captured for Auckland Council by NZ Aerial Mapping & Aerial Surveys Limited. The capture of the data commenced on 17th July and was completed by the 23 November 2013. The datasets were generated by both ASL and NZAM. All raw point cloud data was produced by NZAM & ASL prior to data being sent to Genesys International for the data classification and product generation. The survey area includes the Auckland city urban area and adjacent rural land. Data management and distribution external to Auckland Council is managed by Land Information New Zealand.
Prepared DEM and DSM files are available through the LINZ Data Service
