This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 18 Jun 2017.

This dataset has been replaced by the NZ Street Address and will be deprecated on 30 June 2017. It is currently being ported from the new database in an effort to minimise disruption for customers. See Street Address Data Dictionary for field mappings to the new dataset.

This layer provides all allocated addresses as advised to LINZ by Territorial Authorities (TAs). Under the Local Government Act 1974 (section 319) it is the responsibility of the TAs to advise LINZ (the Surveyor General) of all allocated addresses in their district.


Local Government Act 1974
319B Allocation of property numbers
(1) For electoral, postal, and other purposes the council may allocate a number to any area of land or building or part of a building within its district and may change the number allocated to any such area of land or building.
(2) The council shall comply with any request from a Chief Surveyor to allocate a number to or change the number of any area of land or building or part of a building in its district.
(3) The principal administrative officer shall advise the Chief Surveyor of the land district in which the land or building is situated of the numbers allocated under subsection (1) or subsection (2).


Generally allocated addresses will be represented by a single point. However there was an historical practice to represent only the principal address allocated by Territorial Authorities, and not include addresses assigned to individual flats. Similarly there was an historical practice to aggregate addresses into ranges, especially where there are many addresses for a single parcel. We are working (where possible) to resolve these historical anomalies and have each allocated address represented where possible. The datasets also includes addresses where the Surveyor General has requested (under the Local Government Act) that a TA allocated an address.

The road name and locality fields attributed to an address are taken from the associated road attributes. These roads are stored as centrelines (see NZ Road Centre Line (Electoral)) and reflect the road names as assigned by the TA responsible. The locality name ensures that if duplicate road names exist in TA that the number/road combination can still be unique by using the locality field.

Wherever address points have been provided in spatial data files by a TA, LINZ will import this data and use the exact location as defined by the TA. Where non spatial data is provided LINZ adds the location of an address point with the mandatory priority to locate that address point within the correct meshblock. The location of the front door of an elector's dwelling within the correct meshblock is a fundamental requirement of the electoral system (Section 72 Electoral Act 1993). Highly desirable priorities for the location of an address point are to have it in the same property and parcel as the dwelling and on the correct side of the physical and legal roads. It is also a desirable priority to have the address point in the same location as the dwelling and/or at the location of the property entrance.

This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 18 Jun 2017.

This dataset has been replaced by the NZ Roads (Addressing) and NZ Roads Subsections (Addressing) datasets and will be deprecated on 30 June 2017. It is currently being ported from the new database in an effort to minimise disruption for customers. See NZ Roads Data Dictionary for field mappings to the new dataset.

This source Landonline data exists in order to provide linear geometries against which official road names and street addresses can be recorded. Its purpose is also to enable automated meshblock address reports (for electoral and statistical purposes) so as to identify the presence of a road name in meshblocks where street addresses do not exist.

A road centreline in this layer will typically consist of several road centreline geometries from Landonline that have been associated to the same road name.
In Landonline a road name is commonly assigned to multiple stretches of roading such as between intersections with other roads. A road name is also commonly duplicated across the country e.g. "Queen Street", "High street" etc.

For this layer (as opposed to the Road Subsections Layer. Individual road sections have been aggregated to a single road centreline geometry for each locality. Thus, for example, State Highway 1 has individual sections for differing towns and whenever it crosses a Territorial Authority boundary.

Because some roads have multiple names for part of their lengths, some road centreline geometries will duplicate parts of other roads even though there is in reality only one road formation.

The road centrelines recorded in Landonline do not represent actual road formation, nor do they represent legal access. They must not be considered as topographic, cadastral, or legal.

As a general rule those that are not within a Road Parcels Layer should be treated as being of highly variable accuracy. They do however meet the purposes for which they have been captured, and can provide a valuable resource for other purposes provided that the user(s) understand their origin and consequential limitations.

Warning:
The purpose of the location field is to enable differentiation between roads of the same name in the dataset. It should not be considered official nor part of a valid postal address. It can however be used as an indicative guide to location within a Territorial Authority, or in the case of regional road networks, as an indicative guide to location within New Zealand.

This layer provides a feature representing Electoral road subsection (e.g. a city block) to which associated data such electoral addresses can be attached.

In Landonline a road name is commonly assigned to multiple stretches of roading such as between intersections with other roads. For this layer each of these individual road sections have their own geometry (as opposed to the Road Centre Line Layer where they have been aggregated).

A road may also have more than one road name, some road centreline geometries will duplicate other roads subsections even though there is in reality only one road formation. In addition, a road name is also commonly duplicated across the country e.g. "Queen Street", "High street" etc

This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 10 Oct 2015.

In June 2014, LINZ moved the information from the Authoritative Streets and Places database (ASP) into Landonline and the ASP database is no longer maintained.


This table contains the authoritative name assigned to a length of road. A street record will exist for every distinct length of named road. This may be split into several records if the road crosses a Territorial Authority (TA) boundary (because the TA is the naming authority), or if the road has multiple number ranges. Named roads that follow TA boundaries or meander backwards and forwards across a boundary will normally be treated as one record with multiple Street Parts.

This table is part of the Authoritative Streets and Places (ASP) Database. For more information about the database including the data model see here.

Notes:

  • Some reports generated from ASP require the STREET_NAME+ LOCALITY+STATUS combination to be unique, so validation rules have been put in place enforce this.
  • The locality names currently used in the STREETS table are not ideal, and are considered a work in progress. The main function of LOCALITY in ASP is to achieve uniqueness, and where 2 streets of the same name exist, to be able to differentiate between them.
  • At the time of original conversion form the earlier Oracle database, in late 2004, the locality name was initially populated with the name of the locality in which most of the road centreline resided (based on meshblock to Place relationships held in Landonline), or where there was a relatively even split, to the closest locality. Some longer roads have had “Place to Place” locality names added e.g. “Christchurch-Kaiapoi”. We are aware that some of the names assigned are not ideal,

The Address table contains details relating to the creation and updating of an address including the version of an address.

This table uses a Primaryaddressid to manage the relationship between primary and sub-address. Sub-addresses are addresses contained within a primary address site, e.g. an apartment building, block of flats or marina. If the Primaryaddressid is populated the address is a sub-address. The Primaryaddressid will be captured over time. Core data associated with an address such as street number or road name is not stored in the Address table, this data is stored in the Address Component table. Please Note: The primary and sub-address funtionality will be added at a later date.
