This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 24 Jun 2017.

This layer provides title information (excluding ownership) where there is a data link to one or more primary parcels.

A title is a record of all estates, encumbrances and easements that affect a piece of land. These are now known as Computer Registers incorporating Computer Freehold Registers, Composite Computer Registers, Computer Unit Title Registers and Computer Interest Registers.

This data set removes all ownership fields so that it can be freely distributed. If ownership information is required, the Title & Owners layer and Owners layer; enables this via more restrictive licensing.

An object has been constructed using the parcel shapes where a data link exists. However there can be multiple parcels associated with a title, and a title may only have a part share in a parcel. The constructed shape representing the title will therefore be an aggregation of all parcels that the title is associated with. The ‘spatial extents shared’ attribute when equal to ‘false’ will indicate that title has exclusive interest over all of the shape (this will be case for the vast majority).

The originating data for parcel/title associations includes some non-official sources where the official data does not support a link. For more information see

This layer provides the current primary parcel polygons and some associated descriptive data that details the appellation (legal description), purpose, size and a list of titles that have an interest in the parcel.

A primary parcel is a portion of land that is intended to be :
• owned by the Crown, except moveable marginal strips
• Held in fee simple ((predominately private ownership)
• Maori freehold land or Maori customary land
• Public foreshore and seabed
• The bed of a lake or river
• Road or Railway
• Vested in a local authority

Primary parcels can be thought of as the 'base level' of the 'jigsaw puzzle' of all land making up New Zealand. Other 'levels' are NZ Non-primary parcels that essentially limit the full rights that would normally be associated with a primary parcel for example easements, covenants, leases and moveable marginal strips etc.

If you require approved or historic parcels see the All Parcels Layer

This layer has a nominal accuracy of 0.1-1m in urban areas and 1-100m in rural areas. For more detailed information about parcel accuracies please refer to the Survey Boundary Marks layer which contains accuracies for each parcel node.

The combination of this layer with the non-primary parcels layer provides all current parcels for New Zealand (i.e. excludes Historic and Pending parcels)

The originating data for parcel/title associations includes some non-official sources where the official data does not support a link. For more information see

Please be aware of the following:

  • The existence of a road or track does not necessarily indicate public right of access.

  • Closed tracks are defined as being no longer maintained or passable and should not be used by recreationalists. The Department of Conservation or other authorities should be contacted for the latest information on tracks and huts.

  • Not all aerial wires, cableways and obstructions that could be hazardous to aircraft are held in the data.

  • Contours and spot elevations in forest and snow areas may be less accurate.

  • Not all pipelines including both underground and above ground are held in the data or shown on the printed maps. For the latest information please contact the utility and infrastructure agencies

  • Permits may be required to visit some sensitive and special islands and areas. Contact the Department of Conservation to see if you need to apply for a permit.

This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 25 Jun 2017.

This dataset has been replaced by the NZ Street Address and will be deprecated on 30 June 2017. It is currently being ported from the new database in an effort to minimise disruption for customers. See Street Address Data Dictionary for field mappings to the new dataset.

This layer provides all allocated addresses as advised to LINZ by Territorial Authorities (TAs). Under the Local Government Act 1974 (section 319) it is the responsibility of the TAs to advise LINZ (the Surveyor General) of all allocated addresses in their district.


Local Government Act 1974
319B Allocation of property numbers
(1) For electoral, postal, and other purposes the council may allocate a number to any area of land or building or part of a building within its district and may change the number allocated to any such area of land or building.
(2) The council shall comply with any request from a Chief Surveyor to allocate a number to or change the number of any area of land or building or part of a building in its district.
(3) The principal administrative officer shall advise the Chief Surveyor of the land district in which the land or building is situated of the numbers allocated under subsection (1) or subsection (2).


Generally allocated addresses will be represented by a single point. However there was an historical practice to represent only the principal address allocated by Territorial Authorities, and not include addresses assigned to individual flats. Similarly there was an historical practice to aggregate addresses into ranges, especially where there are many addresses for a single parcel. We are working (where possible) to resolve these historical anomalies and have each allocated address represented where possible. The datasets also includes addresses where the Surveyor General has requested (under the Local Government Act) that a TA allocated an address.

The road name and locality fields attributed to an address are taken from the associated road attributes. These roads are stored as centrelines (see NZ Road Centre Line (Electoral)) and reflect the road names as assigned by the TA responsible. The locality name ensures that if duplicate road names exist in TA that the number/road combination can still be unique by using the locality field.

Wherever address points have been provided in spatial data files by a TA, LINZ will import this data and use the exact location as defined by the TA. Where non spatial data is provided LINZ adds the location of an address point with the mandatory priority to locate that address point within the correct meshblock. The location of the front door of an elector's dwelling within the correct meshblock is a fundamental requirement of the electoral system (Section 72 Electoral Act 1993). Highly desirable priorities for the location of an address point are to have it in the same property and parcel as the dwelling and on the correct side of the physical and legal roads. It is also a desirable priority to have the address point in the same location as the dwelling and/or at the location of the property entrance.

This layer provides all cadastral parcel polygons and some associated descriptive data that details the appellation (legal description), purpose, size and a list of titles that have an interest in the parcel.

NOTE: This layer contains primary and non-primary approved, current or historic linear parcels (see status flag descriptions for more information).

In conjunction with the Linear Parcels, this layer provides the easiest way to create a relationship with associated tables such as Parcel Title Association List, Parcel Statutory Actions List and Survey Affected Parcels List.

This layer contains spatial and non-spatial (without geometry) parcels. The Landonline system which manages the data maintains non-spatial parcels for many different reasons. The non-spatial parcels can only be accessed via WFS or as a full layer file download. No layer clips can be used. The most common reasons for non-spatial parcels are:

  1. Flats and unit survey plans will create non-spatial parcels for referencing property rights. This is because the Landonline system has not yet been designed to support the spatial definition of these plans.

  2. Titles which were not linked to a spatial parcel during the Landonline title conversion project created non-spatial parcel references. As titles are spatially linked many of these non-spatial parcels will be made historic or will be merged with the associated spatial parcel.

Parcels within this layer contain the following status flags:

  • Approved: The definition of a survey-defined parcel that has been processed and authorised as correct in terms of the survey network.

  • Current: A parcels that has been registered or the parcel is made current by a statutory action against a Legalisation plan.

  • Survey Historic: A parcel that has been extinguished from the primary cadastral network but still exists in live Title estates.

  • Historic: A parcel that has been extinguished from the primary cadastral network and no longer exists in live Title estates or has an current recorded statutory action. Typically this happens when a parcel is subdivided or merged, and new titles or actions are registered against the replacing parcels. Note: Only parcel made historic since the beginning of Landonline operations (2002) are included.See this page for the actual dates when Landonline operations started.

Polygons within this layer have a nominal accuracy of 0.1-1m in urban areas and 1-100m in rural areas. For more detailed information about parcel accuracies please refer to the Survey Boundary Marks layer which contains accuracies for each parcel node.

The originating data for parcel/title associations includes some non-official sources where the official data does not support a link. For more information see.

This layer provides the current land parcel polygons with associated descriptive data and is provided for users that require a separation of road parcels and hydro parcels and thereby require the balance layer (i.e. the remaining primary parcels).

The combination of this layer with the road parcels and hydro parcels equates to the primary parcels layer which provides all current parcels for New Zealand (i.e. excludes historic and pending parcels).

This layer has a nominal accuracy of 0.1-1m in urban areas and 1-100m in rural areas. For more detailed information about parcel accuracies please refer to the Survey Boundary Marks layer which contains accuracies for each parcel node.

This set of three parcel layers ('road', 'hydro' and 'land') tables easy access to the most common groupings of parcel intents.

This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 25 Jun 2017.

This dataset has been replaced by the NZ Roads (Addressing) and NZ Roads Subsections (Addressing) datasets and will be deprecated on 30 June 2017. It is currently being ported from the new database in an effort to minimise disruption for customers. See NZ Roads Data Dictionary for field mappings to the new dataset.

This source Landonline data exists in order to provide 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 road centreline in this layer will typically consist of several road centreline geometries from Landonline that have been associated to the same road name.
In Landonline a road name is commonly assigned to multiple stretches of roading such as between intersections with other roads. A road name is also commonly duplicated across the country e.g. "Queen Street", "High street" etc.

For this layer (as opposed to the Road Subsections Layer. Individual road sections have been aggregated to a single road centreline geometry for each locality. Thus, for example, State Highway 1 has individual sections for differing towns and whenever it crosses a Territorial Authority boundary.

Because some roads have multiple names for part of their lengths, some road centreline geometries will duplicate parts of other roads even though there is in reality only one road formation.

The road centrelines recorded in Landonline do not represent actual road formation, nor do they represent legal access. They must not be considered as topographic, cadastral, or legal.

As a general rule those that are not within a Road Parcels Layer should be treated as being of highly variable accuracy. They do however meet the purposes for which they have been captured, and can provide a valuable resource for other purposes provided that the user(s) understand their origin and consequential limitations.

Warning:
The purpose of the location field is to enable differentiation between roads of the same name in the dataset. It should not be considered official nor part of a valid postal address. It can however be used as an indicative guide to location within a Territorial Authority, or in the case of regional road networks, as an indicative guide to location within New Zealand.
