This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 21 Oct 2021.

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 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:

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.

AIMS address set and the simplified version NZ Street Address will continue to be updated by LINZ as normal as advice is received from Territorial Authorities.


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.

Pilot feedback
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: addresses@linz.govt.nz with the subject line ‘NZ Addresses Pilot Feedback’.

Data fields
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.

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.
