We recognise that the spatial mapping data we make available through our Māori Land Online website is an important data set which is highly regarded and sought after by agencies and other users of our service.
The Māori Land Spatial Dataset is a combination of the spatial data available in the Map Search section of our Māori Land Online website and static data about management structures from our Māori Land Information System. Working in conjunction with the Ministry for Primary Industries, a customised dataset has been developed to meet the needs of public whist protecting the privacy of individuals.
The dataset is made available in 1 of 2 spatial formats, a shapefile and a geodatabase. Each are ESRI compatable and maybe downloaded and imported into your mapping application. In addition we have also included an ESRI compatable shapefile for the Māori Land Court District Boundaries and a metadata fact sheet to explain the information included in the dataset.
The details of the latest dataset are as follows:
