Registered Historic Places geocoded by address, legal description, locality or by eye. Much improved on the historic points from the topographic map dataset, or the source website which only lists by name and general region.
The geocoding took a huge amount of effort because of the weak addresses and legal descriptions. Much searching on the web such as council sites filled in the most obscure properties.
If you load this in a GIS application each point only has the name and address, but you can get more details by using the Register ID to reference the source website.
Link to the source website by RegID in ArcView by enabling an HTML popup with this example URL (unfortunately hidden in the formatting)
use the RegID field as the parameter. Or simply paste the URL into a browser and add the RID number manually on the end. RIDs range from 1 to 5777 but the range is not fully populated.
Accuracy codes indicate the geocoding method:
There are 5423 records geocoded.
Although the source points are from last year, links to the website will be more current if NZHPT have updated the details, but historic places don't change much.
Thanks to the team from Koordinates who winkled out the database, and Philip and Becky for doing the hard yards completing the geocoding.
