This dataset contains the core components of an address to support simple searching or use of this layer to provide context and is a replacement for the NZ Street Address (Electoral) dataset. This 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.
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 [NZ Street Address (Electoral) dataset](https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/779).
Please refer to the [Street Address Data Dictionary](https://data.linz.govt.nz/document/1627) for detailed metadata and information about this layer.
For a comprehensive group of address tables see [AIMS: Street Address](https://data.linz.govt.nz/set/87).
