**Please read:** The AIMS: Addressable Object External table is part of the [set of comprehensive AIMS Address tables](https://data.linz.govt.nz/set/87).
The Addressable Object External is able to store the unique ID for an external organisations Addressable Object. The Addressableobjectexternalid will be supplied by the external organisation. More information relating to Addressable Object is available in the Address data dictionary.
The 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.
This layer contains information advised to LINZ by Territorial Authorities (TAs). [Under the Local Government Act 1974 (section 319)](http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/1974/0066/latest/DLM420385.html) it is the responsibility of the TAs to advise LINZ (the Surveyor General) of all allocated addresses in their district.
For a simplified version of the data contained within these tables see [NZ Street Address](https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/3353).
Please refer to the [Street Address Data Dictionary](https://data.linz.govt.nz/document/1627) for detailed metadata and information about this layer.
