**Please read:** This is the look-up table for Alternative Address Type and is part of the [set of comprehensive AIMS Address Tables](https://data.linz.govt.nz/set/87).
TheAlternative Address Type look-up table is used by the following tables; AIMS: Alternative Address.
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.
