LGGA Tracks Project


The LGGA, along with Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), Walking Access Commission and Department of Conservation have been working together to develop a National Data Model for 'Walking and Cycling Tracks data'.

The purpose of this project was to create a national dataset of tracks data that is available for the public to use.  This national dataset is coordinated by LINZ and ultimately used in the 1:50,000 LINZ maps.
The wider intention of this project is to
1.    Review current collaboration between agencies at a local, regional and national level, and identify potential improvements

      2.    Develop a central data repository

      3.    Create a method for councils to 
           easily update national datasets


>  Download the national tracks dataset from  LINZ Data Service  

    This data is not in the national data model format due to the limitations of LDS.
    To transfer from LDS to LGGA data schema, please refer to the mapping   document.

>  Access the national tracks dataset from the Walking Access Commission  service

    This data is available as a service, and uses the LGGA tracks data model.


>  Download the LGGA Tracks Data   User Guide

>  Download the LGGA Tracks Data Schema as

      Esri File Geodatabase -     File geodb

      Esri Shapefile -   File

       Esri ArcPy Toolbox (for creating esri file geodb and domains) -   File

      MapInfo TAB -   File

Once you have done all of this, you can supply the data direct to LINZ, via Greg Byrom (gbyrom at linz.govt.nz), and lgganewzealand at gmail.com or via your LGGA Rep, http://lgga-nz.blogspot.co.nz/2014/03/representation.html
