Localities as described in this data dictionary are built mainly using LINZ cadastral data that is no more than three months old. The exception to this is where a territorial authority has gazetted their suburb boundaries which we use even though they may not follow cadastral boundaries. Coastlines are a mixture of cadastral data and topographical data - which is used where it has been found that relevant detail falls outside the cadastral "coastline".
