LINZ Aerial Imagery Basemap

The LINZ Aerial Imagery Basemap details New Zealand in high resolution - from a nationwide view all the way down to individual buildings.

View the basemap at or integrate it into your application using one of our APIs.

This basemap combines the latest high-resolution aerial imagery down to 5cm in urban areas and 10m satellite imagery to provide full coverage of mainland New Zealand, Chathams and other offshore islands.

Our Basemaps are powered by data from the LINZ Data Service and other authoritative open data sources, providing you with a basemap that is free to use under an open licence.

Map tiles deliver the latest imagery data direct from the Cloud for quality and performance, and can be accessed via Web Map Tile Services (WMTS) for use in GIS applications, or a XYZ tile API for use in web and mobile applications.
