The NZ Aerial Imagery basemap provides a seamless nationwide imagery layer with the newest and highest resolution data, and covers 95% of New Zealand.

This basemap has been designed to be integrated into GIS, web and mobile applications via our WMTS and XYZ tile services. View the Services tab to access these services.

See the LINZ website for service specifications and help using WMTS and XYZ tile services.

This layer is made up of individual aerial imagery (orthophotography) layers available on the LINZ Data Service, and will be updated as new imagery is captured.

Imagery is taken between 2000 and 2014. Pixel resolution ranges from 7.5cm (0.075m GSD) to 125cm (1.25m GSD). The final spatial accuracy varies from +/-0.2 m to +/-20m.

Please refer to the individual layers for specific accuracy, pixel resolution, and licensing attribution requirements.

A list of attribution requirements for each layer are also available at Attributing Aerial Imagery data.

NZ Parcel Boundaries Wireframe provides a map of land, road and other parcel boundaries, and is especially useful for displaying property boundaries.

This map service is for visualisation purposes only and is not intended for download. You can download the full parcels data from the NZ Parcels dataset.

This map service provides a dark outline and transparent fill, making it perfect for overlaying on our basemaps or any map service you choose.

Data for this map service is sourced from the NZ Parcels dataset which is updated weekly with authoritative data direct from LINZ’s Survey and Title system. Refer to the NZ Parcel layer for detailed metadata.

To simplify the visualisation of this data, the map service filters the data from the NZ Parcels layer to display parcels with a status of 'current' only.

This map service has been designed to be integrated into GIS, web and mobile applications via LINZ’s WMTS and XYZ tile services. View the Services tab to access these services.

See the LINZ website for service specifications and help using WMTS and XYZ tile services and more information about this service.

This dataset is a collection of individual hydrographic charts for New Zealand's North Island region, and has been designed to provide a quick way to group, view and/or download charts within this region.

Note: This set contains charts at a variety of scales. Use of LDS web map tile services for this set is not recommended as the scaled charts overlap.

All charts are available for individual download through the LINZ Data Service, and will be updated as new data becomes available.

These charts are based on the official Raster Navigational Chart series produced by the New Zealand Hydrographic Authority, available on the LINZ website.

THIS DATA DOES NOT REPLACE NAUTICAL CHARTS AND MUST NOT BE USED FOR NAVIGATION.

The online New Zealand Chart Catalogue provides more detailed and the most up to date information about New Zealand charts: New Zealand Chart Catalogue.

Please read: This comprehensive address dataset 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).


This comprehensive address dataset includes eight data tables and nine lookup tables. The 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. This set of normalised tables replaces the single Landonline: Street Address layer currently published on LDS.

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 Landonline: Street Address dataset.

For a simplified version of the data contained within these tables see NZ Street Address.

Please refer to the Street Address Data Dictionary for detailed metadata and information about this layer.

Please read: This dataset is comprised of multiple layers and tables from the Full Landonline Dataset and is designed for use only by data professionals who require the complex version of our property ownership and boundary data for advanced uses. For simplified versions of the more commonly used data, see our simplified data layers.


The dataset includes data related to the road, address, and place names stored in Landonline. This data is stored and maintained for electoral purposes, however, it is also used in Landonline for spatial searching and location.

Road centreline and street address data is popular with a broad range of clients, however, both road centrelines and street address should be used with a degree of caution. Road centrelines in Landonline are currently used as a mechanism to display authoritative road names along legal road corridors and do not purport to represent what exists on the ground. Similarly Landonline’s street addresses represent the principal addresses assigned by Territorial Authorities, and seldom include addresses assigned to individual flats, or addresses that differ from those which have been officially assigned.

This dataset enables you to download multiple layers and tables at the same time.

Please refer to the LDS Full Landonline Data Dictionary and Models for detailed metadata about data in this dataset.

This dataset contains NZ Topo50 vector layers related to structures that are available through the LINZ Data Service.

This grouping of NZ Topo50 layers will allow you to quickly view and download this collection of related layers. Topo50 vector datasets are also available for layers covering the themes of hydrography, labels, relief, landcover, transport and vegetation. See all available Topographic Sets.

See the Topographic Data Dictionary for detailed information about each NZ Topo50 layer, and our background information on Topo50 to understand this data.

For the latest changes to this data, see the Topo50 Update History.

Please read: This comprehensive 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.

The centrelines within this set are required to indicate the presence of an authoritative road name. 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.

This set of normalised tables replaces the Landonline: Road Centre Line layer and the Landonline: Road Name and Landonline: Road Name Association tables.

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

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 set.
