Reserve parcels are a subset of the full parcel layer with gazette notices. This is generally public land without a title, but any Crown land with a title has been included, as well as any title with a purpose tag plus any land with a title owned by a local or regional council.
A simple coding has been created using string matching from the Gazette purpose for symbolising. Some of them are a little misleading.
Private titles with a gazette notice are left in for completeness, but would normally be ignored, since they are either conservation covenants or a notice returning road takings to private ownership. They are tagged private and are intended to be suppressed or drawn transparently.
There are lots of problems with the gazette table. It was collected from index maps when digitising the DCDB so it is not complete, and there is no mechanism for ending a gazette within LINZ so many may have been ended, such as teacher's residences, police station sites and many of the utility reserves.
Note that National Parks are not in this set, or a lot of Conservation Estate. This is because the parks were set up with an Act, or the Gazette notice is not recorded, or forest parks have been transferred to DoC by some other legal instrument.
Not all reserve land has public access, eg Defence land.
