Great to see more and more of these official maps becoming available.
Is this something that can be (has been?) incorporated into the likes of OpenStreetMap?
The full dataset (544GB) is available to download or order, so presumably it is technically possible.
If our worldwide imagery supporters (Bing and Mapbox Satellite) provide equal-quality imagery then there's no great urgency. But these local sources can often be better than what's available elsewhere.

It's worth nothing that LINZ have been extremely helpful with things like licensing and funding to get core topographic data into the OSM set for New Zealand. See this page:
