Kaikoura Earthquake Coordinate Update – Cadastral Surveyors working in the affected area

On the weekend 9 December LINZ will be updating Landonline mark coordinates and heights to account for ground movement caused about by the Kaikoura Earthquake of 14 November 2016.

For cadastral surveyors working in the locality this will have an impact on survey marks which have the status of ‘cadastral survey network mark’ or ‘vertical control mark’ and therefore may impact on survey compliance with rule 4.2 (Horizontal datum – connection) or rule 4.3 (Vertical datum) Rules for Cadastral Survey 2010.

More information about the update and rule compliance is available on the LINZ website.
