For comprehensive National Datasets, visit the LINZ Data Service. The LINZ data service enables downloads in GIS formats, CAD formats, Google Earth and CSV.

What is a WMS Service?

A Web Map Service (WMS) is a technology that allows you to retrieve GIS data direct from us over the internet, and display the data as a raster image in your own GIS applications.

This innovation is based on a specification from the Open GIS Consortium (OGC).

Accessing our WMS Service

To access our WMS service use the following address in your GIS application:

  • http://www.gis.napier.govt.nz/geoserver/wms?service=WMS&request=GetCapabilities

What is a WFS Service?

A Web Feature Service (WFS) is a technology that allows you to retrieve GIS data direct from us over the internet, and display the data in your own GIS applications.

WFS is similar to WMS which allows a client to overlay map images from multiple services over the internet.

But while a WMS Server provides raster based maps, a WFS Server provides raw coordinate data that the client uses to produce a map.

This innovation is based on a specification from the Open GIS Consortium (OGC)

Accessing our WFS Service

To access our WFS service use the following address in your GIS application:

  • https://data.napier.govt.nz/geo/wfs?service=WFS&request=GetCapabilities

What is a KML Service?

  • Open Google Earth
  • Select File > Open…
  • Go to the path where the KML has been downloaded (if you are not sure where it’s saved, try your Downloads folder first)
  • Select the kml (or kmz) file and press Open
  • Zoom to Napier to see the layer above the aerial image.
