Our Geographical Information System (GIS) is a computerised mapping system which presents property and land information in an easily recognisable and efficient way by using maps.
It is based on cadastral parcel surveys from Land Information NZ (LINZ) with a range of other associated property information derived from our property database and external sources.
The data is diverse and includes aerial photos, legal descriptions, pipeline services, hazard zones, rates, subdivision information, topographic features, District Plan zonings, population statistics, archeological sites and more.
