CoreLogic NZ proudly announces a large-scale New Zealand imagery data update; (including a significant Auckland update) available to clients via various CoreLogic tools and customised web service integrations.
Head of Geospatial Solutions, Matt Lythe comments: “This imagery update covers over 1million NZ properties - that’s approximately 45% of NZ. It’s part of an ongoing programme, demonstrating CoreLogic’s commitment to provide the best available data to our clients”.
CoreLogic imagery data is relied upon by a vast range of businesses - including emergency services (accuracy of frontline response), utility and telecommunication providers (planning and designing of asset extensions), financial services and real estate sector organisations (property information), engineering companies (identification of assets and planning of maintenance) and public sector agencies (field activity planning).
Auckland Imagery Update:
A significant update for the Auckland area covers 100% of urban Auckland and extends to some rural areas of New Zealand’s largest city too. The image update was flown between March and May 2017 and has not yet been available elsewhere in the market.
The coverage of this updated is reflected in image 1:

Rest of New Zealand Imagery Update:
In March, we also released a wider imagery update, including at least 125,000 new address points between 2011 and when most of this latest imagery was taken. Updates are available in the following areas, reflected in image 3 (below): Kapiti (flown Feb 2017), Otago/Southland (flown between Dec 2015 - Mar 2017), Wellington rural (flown between Jan 2017 - Feb 2017), Horizons area (flown between Mar 2016 - March 2017), Bay of Plenty (flown between Mar 2016 - Nov 2016):
The map in image 3 ((left) shows rural updates (blue) and urban updates (red). Urban area imagery generally has a higher resolution available. CoreLogic acknowledges the efforts of local authorities and Land Information New Zealand to procure and make available this imagery.

The imagery service in particular is integral to our ongoing commitment to maintaining the most comprehensive view of New Zealand property and associated data sets including roads and addresses.”
