Christchurch 15m DEM - Height Corrected

  • Added 25 Feb 2011
  • Updated 11 Jun 2020

A 15 metre resolution, floating point precision, elevation grid generated from the LINZ 1:50,000 scale Topographic data layers (20m contours, spot heights, lake shorelines and coastline) using Landcare Research's in-house interpolation software.

This DEM was originally produced in New Zealand Map Grid (NZMG) projection with elevation in terms of the Infomap 260 chart datum (Mean High Water Spring).

It has been transformed so that the heights are floating point ellipsoidal heights with respect to the GRS80 ellipsoid; this is the standard ellipsoid for the NZTM projection.
