This dataset was last updated on NationalMap Data Service on 18 Jun 2017.

A subset of Critchlow NationalMap consisting of Territorial Authority Administrative Boundaries. These are the second largest administration units after Regional Council areas.

Multiple TAs can occur within one Regional council area, and each TA will include multiple area units, meshblocks and postcodes. For Unitary Authorities the seaward boundary is the outer limits of the territorial sea of New Zealand (12 mile limit).

A territorial authority is defined under the Local Government Act 2002 as a city council or district council.

Territorial authorities are defined at meshblock and area unit level. The Territorial Authority boundaries and classification are released annually on the 1st of January, and on occasion mid year, but there are not always changes from the previous classification.

A subset of Critchlow NationalMap consisting of Regional Council Administrative Boundaries. These are the largest administration units as legally defined by government. They are released annually on the 1st of January to coincide with the update of meshblocks, but there are not always changes from the previous classification.

Regional Councils were established in November 1989 after the abolition of the 22 local government regions. The Local Government Act 2002 requires the boundaries of regions to conform as far as possible to one or more water catchments. When determining regional boundaries, the Local Government Commission gave consideration to regional communities of interest when selecting water catchments to be included in a region. It also considered factors such as natural resource management, land use planning and environmental matters.

Regional councils are defined at meshblock and area unit level. The seaward boundaries of the Regional Councils are the outer limits of the territorial sea of New Zealand (12 mile limit).

Regional councils cover every territorial authority in New Zealand with the exception of Chatham Islands Territory. Generally regional councils contain complete territorial authorities. Where territorial authorities straddle regional council boundaries, the affected area has been statistically defined in complete area units.

This dataset was last updated on NationalMap Data Service on 09 Apr 2018.

A subset of Critchlow NationalMap consisting of Built Up areas defined by LINZ and modified by Critchlow to encompass the extent of built up urban areas including commercial and residential categories. These are named urbanised areas.

'Urban' is defined as 'of, pertaining to, or constituting a city or town; occurring in or characteristic of a city or town'. In the majority of cases, an urban area will be characterised by high population density, small land holdings (regularly less than 0.4 hectares), and zoning that is compatible with high density commercial, industrial and/or residential activity.

Critchlow modifications to the original dataset include the identification of detailed boundaries for built up areas from the latest available aerial imagery supplied by LINZ. Therefore the dataset contains whole urban areas not included in the original LINZ dataset.

A subset of Critchlow NationalMap consisting of Area Unit Administrative Boundaries. These are Statistics NZ area boundaries for Census purposes. Area Units are the next smallest geographic unit formed by the logical aggregation of meshblocks. They are non-administrative areas that are in between meshblocks and territorial authorities in size. Area units must either define, or aggregate to define, regional councils, territorial authorities and urban areas.

Classification criteria:
Each area unit is a single geographic entity with a unique name referring to a geographical feature. Area units of main or secondary urban areas generally coincide with suburbs or parts thereof. Area units within urban areas normally contain a population of 3,000 to 5,000, though this can vary due to such things as industrial areas, port areas, rural areas and so on within the urban area boundaries.

In rural areas, the straddling of some territorial authorities over regional boundaries has resulted in a number of area units having only two or three meshblocks and a very low population count.

Classification:
The standard classification of area unit is a flat classification containing over 2,020 categories. The classification is released annually on the 1st of January. This means that any changes to the area unit pattern caused by local government boundary changes will not be incorporated into statistical outputs until the 1st of January of the following year.

The area unit pattern is continually assessed, but changes are only made under three circumstances. Changes are made following the alteration of local authority boundaries; general review is carried out in the year prior to each Census of Population and Dwellings, and, during the fifteen or twenty year review of statistically defined urban areas. Therefore the annual update may have no changes from the previous classification.

A subset of Critchlow NationalMap consisting of Critchlow's Community of Interest boundaries. These are the equivalent of suburbs, captured by Critchlow in consultation with New Zealand Fire Service to establish Fire Service suburb boundaries. Similar boundaries and names are used in the MapMarker address geocoding software.

No officially designated suburbs exist within New Zealand. This is a Critchlow produced source currently used by a number of government and major organisations to define suburbs. It can include a number of meshblocks and or area units.

A subset of Critchlow NationalMap consisting of Statistics NZ Meshblock boundaries. Meshblocks are the smallest geographic units of data recognised by Statistics New Zealand. Meshblocks aggregate to build larger geographic areas, such as area units, territorial authorities, and regional councils.

Meshblocks contain on average approximately 150 people and 40 houses. They cover about one city block in urban areas. Some meshblocks do not contain any population.

Meshblocks vary in size from part of a city block to large areas of rural land. Each meshblock abuts another to cover all of New Zealand, extending out to the 200-mile economic zone (approximately 320 kilometres).

A subset of Critchlow NationalMap consisting of the previous release of Territorial Authority (TA) Administrative Boundaries. These are the second-largest administration units after Regional Council areas.

Multiple Territorial Authorities can occur within one Regional council area, and each TA will include multiple area units, meshblocks and postcodes. For Unitary Authorities the seaward boundary is the outer limit of the territorial sea of New Zealand (12 mile limit). A territorial authority is defined under the Local Government Act 2002 as a city council or district council.

Territorial authorities are defined at meshblock and area unit level. The Territorial Authority boundaries and classification are released annually on the 1st of January, and on occasion mid year, but there are not always changes from the previous classification.
