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 index enables you to identify the freely available bathymetric data held and used by LINZ on its NZ coastal nautical charts. Some of our data holdings date back to the 1930s. The polygons comprising the index show the extent of the survey datasets. The attributes attached to each polygon will enable you to view, amongst other attributes, the age and quality of the bathymetric data.

Please refer to the LINZ Bathymetric Index Data Dictionary for further information about the attributes of this dataset.

The bathymetric data is not downloadable from the LINZ Data Service. Datasets prior to the year 2000 are predominantly available only as georeferenced TIFF images of the original hard copy sounding sheets. Data post-2000 is often available as both georeferenced TIFF images and as digital data files (vector data in plain text format).

Requests for the bathymetric data should be sent to customersupport@linz.govt.nz with “Hydro Bathy Data” in the subject line. Requests must, as a minimum, specify the id, chart_no and serial_no as shown in the attributes attached to each polygon representing the datasets of interest.

LINZ also holds bathymetric data provided by third parties, which is subject to different licencing terms and conditions. View our "NZ Bathymetric Data Index – Third Party" dataset to request this data.

Please read: This is the look-up table for Road Section Lifecycle Stage and is part of the set of NZ Roads tables.

The Road Section Lifecycle Stage look-up table is used by the following tables; NZ Roads: Road Section.

The NZ Roads dataset includes eight data tables and eleven lookup tables. The dataset has been sourced from LINZ’s NZ Roads database, a database for the management of national roads, including those managed for addressing purposes. This set of normalised tables replaces the Landonline: Road Centre Line layer and the Landonline: Road Name and Landonline: Road Name Association tables currently published on LDS.

These centrelines are required to indicate the presence of an authoritative road name. Named centrelines are not intended to represent the exact location of a road formation. Named centrelines do not indicate the presence of legal access.

For a simplified version of the data contained within these tables see NZ Roads (Addressing), which aggregates geometries based on road name, and NZ Roads Subsections (Addressing), which holds the individual geometries.

Please note: We have a known issue, where 'unit_value' is not represented in the address_component_value field for a number of address records in the AIMS: Address Component table. Where it is not populated, it will present as duplicated addresses. LINZ is working to resolve this issue. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please read: The AIMS: Address Component data table is part of the set of comprehensive AIMS Address tables.

The Address Component table contains core information relating to a street address such as Street Number or Road Name and is stored in the address_component_value field of the Address Component table. The address_component_type describes the type of component e.g. Address number, road name, town/city. This table also includes component order and group to allow for address number elements and road name elements to be grouped together.
