NZ Named Roads - Points

  • Added 21 Jun 2011

This is a large subset of LINZ road-centerlines, containing all roads that have a name and a road_name_ id, regardless of road surface. Roads that have more than one contiguous part have multiple labels, otherwise only one. Its best purpose is probably road search for nz maps.

It was made using the following process:

  1. remove all roads with no name or no id
  2. multipart the multiple linestrings
  3. try to dissolve into single linestring
  4. line interpolate those that suceeded
  5. for those that were not contiguous, buffer to 1m then pointonsurface
  6. merge in region and tla from SNZ shapes, sentence case names
