Survey parcel polygons for whole of NZ + Chatham Islands.
Parcel polygons are a space filling layer covering the whole of New Zealand out to the 12 nautical mile limit. All areas are covered and numbered with a static unique parcel ID (PAR_ID). Thus roads, lakes, rivers and the sea are all parcels.
The LINZ data has multi-part polygons, they are now multipart in this version. There are 6,689 multi-part parcels comprising of 16,548 parts out of 2,458,035 total. It is easy to explode into single part for those people that need them.
Parcels have a featurecode that classifies them into high level groups. Not all parcels have a parcel appellation (eg Lot 3 DP 12345), for example vested roads.
The appellation is in a separate table, but has been joined to the parcel polygons as a single field called legal which also has the official parcel area. If it has a tilde (~) then it is the measured area. If the area is different from the official area then the official area is wrong (20% are ridiculous).
Parcels do not have addresses (only the property that has a dwelling is usually allocated an address. and even then a third are not numbered in the valuation roll).
