Just stumbled across this website, bloody brilliant.

 

Flick between LINZ charts, Navionics Sonar, Navionics nav, Satellite, Street, the whole shebang.

 

And uses location services so GPS enabled.

 

Chapeau whoever did that!

Good app!

 

Is there anything similar using Council/LINZ data with property boundaries?

 

I'd like to wander over a 2 acre, hilly bush block with my smart phone and see where the boundary lines are

^ Funny, I was just doing that a couple of days ago. Just enable location , use google maps and toggle between default and Google earth, gets you close enough to find the pegs, depending on the satellites.

A huh, I'm assuming you used the council website and put in the GPS co-ordinates for the pegs on your device?

 

My problem is that the pegs are 100m+ apart on a hilly, bushclad site, with no line of site and i want to walk the boundary line. Its not easy and i assumed there would be an app for it, but no luck finding one yet!

The "app" for that was invented more than 2000 years ago by Han Dynasty Chinese. It's called a compass. Set the bearing you want and walk the bearing, keeping the needle on your bearing. You can get an electronic gps app to do the same. Good luck.

No , if you zoom in on maps it shows the boundary lines. I also used paper with measurements and bearings from our land title stuff to find one and get a parameter for error in the GPS position.

 I used the "draw-dimension" off a power pole base and another fixed point and measured off, scribing arcs.

Relocated the old pegs on a job I'm on. No good for my 2.5acre native block tho. 

Not that there is any reason to, as its zoned untouchable.

 

I'm back in design mode (reluctantly) as client/friend has had  a hash made of his secondary dwelling  consent.

Any one recommend a surveyor that can cert footprint? Mines retired.

 

Wetmaps-- very useful, thanks!

Ahh, got it thx! The boundary lines are only visible on certain base maps that I hadn't explored.
