Data gathered from Measuring the ANZACs will be used for three main purposes: To create a complete and rich index of persons who served in the New Zealand military in World War I and the South African War (also called the Second Boer War). To support academic research on the health of New Zealanders led by a team of researchers at the Universities of Minnesota, Guelph and Waikato. To provide an ongoing platform for historical and genealogical research on NZ’s World War I soldiers by citizens and scientists around the world.
