This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 07 May 2021.

This layer only contains those place names that have a polygon geometry captured for them.
For the complete list of place names see NZ Place Names.

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 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 provides an index to the Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) available through the LINZ Data Service showing extent and ENC attributes.

The ENC index is compiled from the S-57 Object Class “Nautical publication information” which is used to relate additional nautical information or publications to the data. The attributes are populated by Land Information New Zealand’s (LINZ) production database.

S-57 is a standard used to exchange digital hydrographic data between hydrographic offices and to distribute this data to users.
This dataset was compiled for the use in the scale ranges 1:1,000 to 1:1,500,000 and smaller.

THIS DATA DOES NOT REPLACE NAUTICAL CHARTS AND MUST NOT BE USED FOR NAVIGATION.

This data is based on the S-57 data format used in ENCs, published and maintained by the New Zealand Hydrographic Authority at LINZ. Refer to the following link for information about S-57 data: www.linz.govt.nz/hydro/regulation/

THIS DATA DOES NOT REPLACE NAUTICAL CHARTS AND MUST NOT BE USED FOR NAVIGATION.

The hydrographic raster data made available through the LINZ Data Service is based on the Paper Nautical Charts published and maintained by the New Zealand Hydrographic Authority at Land Information New Zealand (LINZ).

The NZ Paper Nautical Chart Index contains details of six international charts which are adopted by LINZ. Due to copyright reasons LINZ is not authorised to make the chart images available for download on LDS. These charts can be purchased from chart retailers.

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.
