Transpower Map Services - openData as it should be done.




Transpower have recently announced the availability via online services of some of its core data layers with a CC BY license.





This is a great example of organisations sharing their core datasets via online API's through the creative commons licensing model.

This sharing allows each consuming organisations to have access to update to date and relevant data for their own purposes straight from the source.




Below is the detail that Transpower released on their openData services.



Geospatial data layers are now available via as map services on the Transpower website

We encourage GIS users to reference these map services instead of any older data supplies which you may have. The map service layers are kept up to date for changes to the Transmission network. The transmission network is largely static but changes do take place when lines are realigned.

Data updates will also help to show which infrastructure is currently owned by Transpower as a number of assets have been transferred to Network Companies in the recent past.

The layers which are available as part of our initial release are outlined below. Please get in touch if you have any questions relating to this service.

  3. The next time My partner and i study a blog site, I hope it does not disappoint me personally as a great deal because this one. I mean, I know it was my own option to understand, nevertheless I personally believed youd have got some thing fascinating to state. All We listen to is a couple of whining about something that you may well fix if you were not also busy looking for attention.
