Land Information New Zealand's data service has been named winner of both the Spatial Enablement category and the JK Barrie Award for Overall Excellence at the Asia Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards.
The LINZ data services provides open access to LINZ public data to support the creation of new and improved products and services across business, government and the community.
Chief executive Peter Mersi said it allowed customers quick and easy access to the data they needed to integrate into their own services and systems.
“To receive such acclaim is an immense endorsement of the work that LINZ has put into the LDS. It is recognition – of the highest order – of the value of developing and implementing a free and easy-to-use geospatial data sharing service."
