City Labelling in New Zealand has been evolving. This document has been created to try and set some standards.

City and County Naming

The City field should be used to specify the city, town or village for all the streets within it.

  • City name on all primary and above roads - main 'city' field
    • e.g. Whangarei

  • Suburb name on all primary and above roads - alt 'city' field
    • e.g. Kamo

  • Suburb name on all regular roads - main 'city' field
    • e.g. Kamo

  • No city/Suburb name on rural roads or state Highways between cities

Where possible, the simplest unique name should be used.

The editor will display the error message "The highlighted road is too far from the city it was added to" when attempting to add a duplicate name. This is to prevent smudges and means that a different name will need to be chosen for that town or village.
