Data Story

Using LiDAR data from LINZ and a list of heritage Pā sites from DOC, 3D models are made for a user to explore.

Current Limitations:
- google has trouble finding these Scenic and Historic Reserve.
- LiDar data isn't available for all of New Zealand. Some district councils have not given their data to LINZ for archiving, so it's not accessible by the public easily.
