This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 18 Jan 2020.

The Place Names Gazetteer contains official and unofficial place names under the jurisdiction of the New Zealand Geographic Board Ngā Pou Taunaha o Aotearoa (NZGB). Official place names are those that have been assigned, altered, adopted, approved, and validated under the NZGB Act 2008 or through other statutes that assign official names, for example, Treaty settlement legislation. Unofficial place names are those that have not been processed under the NZGB Act 2008 or through other relevant statutes.

Data is extracted from Land Information New Zealand’s (LINZ) ‘New Zealand Gazetteer of Official Geographic Names’, which is maintained by the NZGB Secretariat.

Geographical coverage encompasses New Zealand, the Ross Dependency of Antarctica, and the Continental Shelf of New Zealand.

The NZGB has naming jurisdiction over:

  • natural features such as mountains, peaks, valleys, glens, forests, lagoons, swamps, creeks, streams, rivers, fords, lakes, glaciers or ice features, bays, islands or harbours (including man-made features of the same type)

  • railways or railway stations, but not railway features such as marshalling yards, transfer sites, or track point locations

  • places, i.e. cities, towns, villages, sites, areas, or similar places, including suburbs and localities

  • undersea features

  • Crown protected areas

  • Districts and regions (altering only if requested by the local authority)

Each name is provided with a location represented by a point. More complex geometry (e.g lines for rivers or areas for suburbs) is not currently available.

Each geographic feature has one or more place names associated with it. Place names usually comprise two components – ‘specific’, being for the proper noun, and ‘generic’, being a description of the geographic feature type.

Information provided for each place name may include: name; name status (whether official or unofficial); geographic feature type; authority by which an official name became official; district within which the name is located; geographic location; reference information; history/origin/meaning; and additional notes. Not all information is available for all names.

Positional accuracy is generally the same as 1:50K mapping. Information accuracy reflects information at the time of original capture.

This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 17 Jan 2020.

This dataset provides title information (excluding ownership) where there is a relationship to one or more primary parcels.

A Record of Title is a record of a property's owners, legal description and the rights and responsibilities registered against the title.

This dataset does not contain any ownership information so that it can be freely distributed. If ownership information is required, see the NZ Property Title Including Owners and NZ Property Title Owners datasets. Note: these are restricted access datasets and require you to agree to the LINZ Licence for Personal Data.

There can be multiple parcels associated with a title, and a title may only have a part share in a parcel. This means the shape representing the title will 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 the LINZ website

This dataset was last updated on LINZ Data Service on 17 Jan 2020.

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

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 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 non-primary parcel polygons (e.g. easements) and some associated descriptive data that details the appellation (legal description), purpose, and size.

A non-primary parcel is a portion of land that that essentially enables the transfer of some rights to another i.e. usually limits the exclusive rights that would normally be associated with a primary parcel.

Non primary parcels include the following examples:
• an easement, including an esplanade strip or an access strip
• a covenant
• a lease or an area associated with a lease
• a licence or a permit area
• a unit or common property for the purposes if the Unit Titles Act 1972
• a moveable marginal strip
• a roadway or a restricted roadway that is an encumbrance over a primary parcel

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 primary parcels layer provides all spatially available current parcels for New Zealand (i.e. excludes historic and pending parcels and non-primary parcels that have not been spatially captured in Landonline).
