LINZ (Toitū Te Whenua Land Information New Zealand) is a NZ government department responsible for creating and holding information concerning land ownership, landuse and landcover. Data from LINZ covers New Zealand, the outer islands, the Cook Islands, Niuē, Tokelau, and the Ross Dependency of Antarctica (see the table below). LINZ has signed an ODbL license waiver to allow its data to be imported into OSM.


Status @ August 2021

The original linz2osm project is no longer active, and the original web-app (source) no longer works.

There are three ongoing projects to continue the import of data from LINZ:

Official Approval Granted

LINZ has given their express permission to use the LINZ data orignally in 2008 and again in 2011 under the new ODbL:

2008-03-18: LINZ gave their consent to include, modify and derive LINZ data in OSM with suitable attribution.

"Apologies for the delay - after gaining advice from our legal team we have concluded that you are able to use the information providing that you use the following clause for inclusion with the data that is supplied:

2011-08-23: LINZ gave their consent to use the new licensing terms:

Further to my phone call yesterday, this email is to confirm that LINZ gives permission to re-license our LDS CC-by data under OSM’s new terms and licences for the purposes of third parties wishing to contribute to the OSM database.

2018-05: LINZ completed the OpenStreetMap Foundation's official waiver for use of CC BY data in OpenStreetMap. File:LINZ OSM-CC-4.0 waiver.pdf

Import Process

  • As of 2021, importing can by done by anyone, using RapiD for building outlines, and a fork of Rapid for addresses and the topo layers described below.
  • For bulk imports, each user must have their own specific LINZ Data uploading account. Name this account [normal osm name]_linz and add it to the list below.

Previous discussions and notes

Footnotes

  1. A very small amount of hydrographic data is also available for Wallis and Futuna, American Sāmoa, Fiji, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Micronesia (Fed. States of), Norfolk Island, and AustraliaMacquarie Island.
  2. currently the most popular tag, and the only documented one
  3. Most names should come from the NZGB dataset (future import?), except for these 15 categories which aren't gazetted
  4. if the geometry is too complicated to simplify into a line, the tool will suggest mapping it as an area. Manual simplification requried.
