This dataset was first added to LINZ Data Service on 15 Sep 2022.

The NZ Suburbs and Localities (Pilot) dataset describes the spatial extent and name of communities in urban areas (suburbs) and rural areas (localities) to help locate people and properties.  It is based on the NZ Localities dataset which is maintained by Fire and Emergency NZ.  

At this stage,  NZ Localities continues to be maintained by Fire and Emergency NZ and published on the LINZ Data Service.  Toitū Te Whenua Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) will establish a new dataset to replace NZ Localities in 2023.  NZ Localities will continue to be available for a period of six months to allow for the transition to NZ Suburbs and Localities.  Updates to both datasets will be limited to priority changes required by the Fire and Emergency Communications Centre during this transition.

While creating NZ Suburbs and Localities (Pilot), LINZ has taken the opportunity to restructure the data based on customer feedback.  Our intention is to make the suburbs and localities data easier to understand and use.

The key changes introduced in NZ Suburbs and Localities (Pilot) are:

All suburb and locality names are now held in a single field, to replace the 4th, 3rd, 2nd and 1st order names
New Zealand Geographic Board official place names have been adopted, including macrons. 
Additional name field, to hold alternative common or in-use names
Each name field has a corresponding ascii field to provide the names without macrons or other special characters
Territorial Authority has been added
Small lakes and tarns have been removed
A simple version of the data has been created to removed the related tables.
A complex version of the data has three related tables to provide a one to many relationship for Territorial Authority, Additional Names and Adjacent Names.  The complex version will be published once the data structure for the pilot has been confirmed
Please refer to the NZ Localities Data Migration Guidance for more information.

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.

In June 2022, NZ Addresses will become the national, authoritative dataset for physical addresses, replacing NZ Street Address.

Update August 2022 - Customer feedback identified an issue which is generating some duplicate addresses in NZ Addresses. We hope to resolve this as soon as possible and publish NZ Addresses as the national, authoritative dataset for physical addresses.


About the validation process
The Toitū Te Whenua LINZ Addressing Team developed routines and procedures to validate address sets sourced from Territorial Authorities against the AIMS address set.

A pilot project ran for six months, until December 2021, to gather feedback. Thank you for your valuable responses which have helped improve the data. Further validation of NZ Addresses (Pilot) will continue for six months until June 2022.

NZ Addresses (Pilot) remains for test purposes only at this stage. The pilot dataset is not intended to be used in place of the AIMS suite of published addresses, including NZ Street Address.

In June 2022, NZ Addresses will become the national, authoritative dataset for physical addresses, replacing NZ Street Address. We welcome any additional feedback as we work towards this goal.

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.

Please read: This is the Address Range Road table and is part of the set of NZ Roads tables. The Address Range Road table provides an identifier that groups one or more Road Sections that have a non-standard address range. This currently includes roads that consist of multiple address ranges. The address range values are not held or provided as part of this dataset.

The NZ 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. This set of normalised tables replaces the Landonline: Road Centre Line layer and the Landonline: Road Name and Landonline: Road Name Association tables currently published on LDS.

These centrelines are required to indicate the presence of an authoritative road name. Named centrelines are not intended to represent the exact location of a road formation. Named centrelines do not indicate the presence of legal access.

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 layer.

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 dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 02 Dec 2022.

Please read: This layer provides 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 linear geometry in this layer will consist of the individual road section geometries (as opposed to the NZ Roads (Addressing) layer where these have been aggregated). This layer has been simplified from LINZ’s NZ Roads database, a centralised database for the management of national road data. The comprehensive set of NZ Roads tables is also available.

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.

Some road sections have multiple names; in these cases the non-primary road names are held in additional columns against each road section.

This layer contains the core attributes of a road section to support simple searching with locality and territorial authority or provide a road name context for cadastral data views. This layer is a replacement for the NZ Road Centre Line Subsections (Electoral) layer.

The Electoral road and address datasets will be available until May 2017 to allow users further time to transition.

Please refer to the NZ Roads Data Dictionary for detailed metadata and information about this layer.
