This pilot dataset provides more comprehensive national address data for New Zealand, incorporating previously missing addresses to our official address data.
NZ Addresses (Pilot) comprises both AIMS addresses and allocated addresses identified as missing from AIMS gathered from Territorial Authorities.
To improve ease of use, this dataset also includes:
Official locality names from NZ Localities - NZGB Compliant Names
Territorial Authority association
Please note: we are still working through a process of identifying missing addresses. NZ Addresses (Pilot) will continue to be populated with missing addresses as they are verified.
About the pilot
The Toitū Te Whenua LINZ Addresssing Team developed routines and procedures to validate address sets sourced from Territorial Authorities against the AIMS address set.
NZ Addresses (Pilot) is for test purposes only. The pilot dataset is not intended to be used in place of the AIMS suite of published addresses (such as NZ Street Address).
The pilot will run for six months, until December 2021. Next steps will be informed by feedback received during the pilot.
We welcome your feedback on NZ Addresses (Pilot). The questions below could help guide feedback:
1. How useful is NZ Addresses (Pilot) to your application?
2. Have you identified any aspects of NZ Addresses (Pilot) that could be improved?
3. Have you encountered any addresses that you feel should not have been included as a missing address?
4. Any other feedback?
Please direct feedback to: email@example.com with the subject line ‘NZ Addresses Pilot Feedback’.
Please refer to the Street Address Data Dictionary for detailed metadata and information about the AIMS fields in this dataset.
NOTE: there are a few differences between the existing AIMS dataset and this dataset.
New addresses identified are named ‘CADS’ (Comprehensive Addresses Data Store) addresses.
Some new fields include source_dataset (the source of the record, e.g. CADS or AIMS), and address_lifecycle.
Field address_id is the unique identifier for an address in either AIMS or CADS addresses.
Field change_id is the unique identifier for the address version in either AIMS or CADS addresses.
Field address_class is same as address_type and includes throughfare and water.
Field road_section_id is not included in this dataset.

Please read: This comprehensive address dataset 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).
This comprehensive address dataset includes eight data tables and nine lookup tables. The dataset has been sourced from LINZ’s Address Information Management System (AIMS), a centralised database for the management of national addresses, including for electoral purposes. This set of normalised tables replaces the single Landonline: Street Address layer currently published on LDS.
The existing address and road datasets will be available for 6 months after AIMS go-live to allow users further time to transition.This version will be replacing Landonline: Street Address dataset.
For a simplified version of the data contained within these tables see NZ Street Address.
Please refer to the Street Address Data Dictionary for detailed metadata and information about this layer.

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.
