This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 25 May 2019.

The Place Names Gazetteer contains official and unofficial place names under the jurisdiction of the New Zealand Geographic Board Ngā Pou Taunaha o Aotearoa (NZGB). Official place names are those that have been assigned, altered, adopted, approved, and validated under the NZGB Act 2008 or through other statutes that assign official names, for example, Treaty settlement legislation. Unofficial place names are those that have not been processed under the NZGB Act 2008 or through other relevant statutes.

Data is extracted from Land Information New Zealand’s (LINZ) ‘New Zealand Gazetteer of Official Geographic Names’, which is maintained by the NZGB Secretariat.

Geographical coverage encompasses New Zealand, the Ross Dependency of Antarctica, and the Continental Shelf of New Zealand.

The NZGB has naming jurisdiction over:

  • natural features such as mountains, peaks, valleys, glens, forests, lagoons, swamps, creeks, streams, rivers, fords, lakes, glaciers or ice features, bays, islands or harbours (including man-made features of the same type)

  • railways or railway stations, but not railway features such as marshalling yards, transfer sites, or track point locations

  • places, i.e. cities, towns, villages, sites, areas, or similar places, including suburbs and localities

  • undersea features

  • Crown protected areas

  • Districts and regions (altering only if requested by the local authority)

Each name is provided with a location represented by a point. More complex geometry (e.g lines for rivers or areas for suburbs) is not currently available.

Each geographic feature has one or more place names associated with it. Place names usually comprise two components – ‘specific’, being for the proper noun, and ‘generic’, being a description of the geographic feature type.

Information provided for each place name may include: name; name status (whether official or unofficial); geographic feature type; authority by which an official name became official; district within which the name is located; geographic location; reference information; history/origin/meaning; and additional notes. Not all information is available for all names.

Positional accuracy is generally the same as 1:50K mapping. Information accuracy reflects information at the time of original capture.

This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 25 May 2019.

This layer provides the extents of the data incorporated into an adjustment which has been completed as a Wide Area Cadastral Adjustment (WACA). These adjustments are undertaken in areas where there is already substantial survey-accurate data, but there are some inconsistencies in the data resulting from small changes to geodetic control coordinates and/or the progressive submission of additional Cadastral Survey Datasets (CSDs). The improvement of coordinates is controlled by a mathematical adjustment process using a Least Squares methodology. The adjustment/integration process results in increased mapping accuracy of surrounding spatial objects (e.g. parcels), the effect of which is some new observations or parcels appear to move. The extent of the change largely depends upon the accuracy of the underlying data. In general, movements will be no more than 10cm, as the WACAs target areas where coordinates already have fairly high spatial accuracy.

This layer provides the extents of the data incorporated into an adjustment which has been completed as part of the Spatial Parcel Improvement (SPI) project. The SPI project aims to improve the accuracy of digital cadastral data in areas (primarily rural) where survey-accurate data does not currently exist. The improvement of coordinates is controlled by a mathematical adjustment process using a Least Squares methodology. The adjustment/integration process results in increased mapping accuracy of surrounding spatial objects (e.g. parcels), the effect of which is some new observations or parcels appear to move. The extent of the change largely depends upon the accuracy of the underlying data. In general, movements will be at least several metres, as the SPI project targets areas where significant movements are expected.

This layer provides all authoritative arc survey observations and is targeted at cadastral surveyors.

Only observations that have been captured in Landonline are available. This includes vectors that were re-captured in the Survey Capture Areas from survey plans lodged prior to Landonline and all survey observations since.

Individual cadastral surveys will commonly re-measure or re-use cadastral lines. Often they will be the same, however as the accuracy capability has increased over time, differences between 'old' and 'new' observations are more likely. Thus all survey observations include the reference to the Survey Plan.

Often they will be the same, however as the accuracy capability has increased over time, differences between 'old' and 'new' observations are more likely. Thus all survey observations include the reference to the survey plan.

This dataset only contains right-line survey observations. A small fraction of the total number of survey observations are defined as arcs and are provided via the Survey Arc Chords layer.

This layer provides the extents of influence that the work to integrate survey information has on the surrounding Cadastre.

All cadastral surveys must be integrated into the Cadastre. As part of this process the new information 'upgrades' the existing information. This is controlled by a mathematical adjustment process using a Least Squares methodology.

The adjustment/Integration process results in increased mapping accuracy of surrounding spatial objects (e.g. parcels), the effect of which is some new observations or parcels appear to move. The extend of the change largely depends upon the size of the new survey, the difference in accuracy between new and old data and the number of linkages to other Surveys.

In general, where the underlying surveys are older or in a rural location the greater the extent of the adjustment.

This layer provides survey mark information for marks that are not part of a parcel

A non-boundary mark is any survey mark that is not on a boundary point. The points in this dataset represent physical survey monuments usually placed for cadastral requirements. The data set also includes geodetic marks. Non-boundary marks now enter the Landonline system predominately as part of a cadastral survey dataset (plan) and occasionally via the geodetic processes. For Cadastral marks (i.e.the majority) its name consists of a mark type and number (and is unique to that survey), followed by the ‘plan’ number e.g. IS I DP 3456; IS II DP3456.

Note:
Non-boundary marks used to connect cadastral surveys to the geodetic network are those of 6th order (or better) and this subset is available as the NZ Cadastral Survey Network Marks layer.

This dataset extends the Landonline stored data by including the network accuracy which is based upon its assigned Landonline order - refer LINZS25006 (www.linz.govt.nz/about-linz/news-publications-and-...).

The accuracy provided relates to the accuracy of coordinates of the mark and has little relevance to the accuracy of the boundary in relation to other boundaries. For example, if the coordinates of the mark were used to locate it, a user would expect to find the existing mark within the accuracy (distance) stated.

This layer provides all marks and associated information that have an order of 6 or better.
Cadastral surveys are required to connect to these marks if they are within a specified distance.

A cadastral survey network mark is a node which is (or was) occupied by a physical survey monument that meets accuracy standards suitable for cadastral requirements. i.e. Cadastral Survey Network Marks have a NZGD2000 horizontal coordinate order of 6 or better. The complete definition for these mark orders is defined by the following Standard.
"www.linz.govt.nz/survey-titles/cadastral-surveying..."

When a new cadastral survey network mark is named as part of a cadastral survey dataset (plan) its name consists of a mark type and number that is unique to that survey, followed by the plan number e.g. IS I DP 3456; IS II DP3456.

This layer provides the latest bearing (direction) and/or distance for cadastral boundaries.

When a cadastral survey is undertaken the relationship between boundary and non-boundary marks is ascertained or measured.
• This commonly is in the form or a vector (bearing and distance), but occasionally just one component.
• Some relationships are defined as arcs. In this data layer, the arc length is recorded in the distance field and a separate record holds the chord.

Only observations that have been captured in Landonline are available. This includes vectors that were re-captured in the Survey Capture Areas from survey plans lodged prior to Landonline and all survey observations since.
