This document provides detailed metadata (data dictionary) for the new simplified NZ Roads and comprehensive NZ Roads datasets published on the LINZ Data Service. These datasets contain a new structure for the road data that we currently hold as part of our address information, kept for electoral purposes.
This address dataset is a set of related layers and associated look-up tables providing address information as a data model designed for technical applications and includes eight data tables and nine lookup tables.
Refer to the NZ Addresses Data Dictionary for detailed metadata and information about this dataset.
This dataset provides all allocated addresses as advised to Toitū Te Whenua LINZ by Territorial Authorities (TAs). Under the Local Government Act 1974 (section 319) it is the responsibility of the TAs to advise the Surveyor-General at Toitū Te Whenua LINZ of all allocated addresses in their district.
The dataset is maintained by Toitū Te Whenua LINZ in the Address Information Management System (AIMS) which is centralised database for the management of national addresses, including for electoral purposes. This dataset is updated weekly on the LINZ Data Service.

Please read: This comprehensive 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.
The centrelines within this set are required to indicate the presence of an authoritative road name. These road centrelines do not represent actual road formation, nor do they represent legal access. They must not be considered as topographic, cadastral, or legal.
This set of normalised tables replaces the Landonline: Road Centre Line layer and the Landonline: Road Name and Landonline: Road Name Association tables.
The Landonline road and address datasets will be available until May 2017 to allow users further time to transition.
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 refer to the NZ Roads Data Dictionary for detailed metadata and information about this set.
