NZ Addresses (Pilot)
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](https://data.linz.govt.nz/set/4787) 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](https://data.linz.govt.nz/table/105353)
- 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.
[AIMS address set](https://data.linz.govt.nz/set/4787) and the simplified version [NZ Street Address](https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/53353) 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?

--- **APIs and web services** This dataset is available via ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS REST services, as well as our standard APIs. [LDS APIs and OGC web services](https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/105615/webservices/) [ArcGIS Online map services](https://linz.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=8d66dcb16f8a4ca8916b4b6d6114d9cf)
**Data fields** Please refer to the [Street Address Data Dictionary](https://data.linz.govt.nz/document/12627) 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 all NZ addresses as advised to Toitū Te Whenua LINZ by Territorial Authorities.
