Māori Land Spatial Data

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.

We are currently working with the Ministry for Primary Industries to develop a basic Māori Land Layer which we are planning to release publically later this year.

In anticipation of the release of this public layer, you can register your interest with us and we will notify you of any future release.

You can register your interest by sending us an email to our Māori Land Online email address:
