Cadastral Parcel Labels for NZ
A point at each parcel's approx centre (and always inside) has the parcel appellation. This often easier to use than the parcel and is unique with a key PAR_ID (known as the Static Unique Identifier). Multi-part parcels making up a single parcel (eg an island group) will have one label for each part but only one attribute record.
Road and water 'parcels' have a label, but no appellation, so they have been omitted. Some hydro lake parcels and marine reserves do have an appellation but have been ignored.
The appellation label has backslashes for separating into three lines to make labelling easier. It includes the parcel area in square metres or hectares. If there is a ~ the area has been calculated from the shape. This is generally more accurate than the official area. Multipart parcels have a total area of all the parts in the label with the prefix 'Total'
Maori appellation is in reverse to the general roll with the partition before the block name.
Appellation labels are clear of address labels.
