Introduction

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

City and County Naming

To aid in an easy to understand client display, if the street is visible at higher zoom levels (Primary and above) the City field should be used to only specify the city, town or village. However if the city had suburbs and the street is only visible at closer zoom levels (Standard and below) this field should be the suburb. An alternate name with the City field with the other value should be added to aid the searching of roads in that area.

Urban Example

Lets take Kamo, Whangarei as an example.

For all primary and above roads in the area:

  • Primary city: Whangarei
  • Alt city: Kamo

Standard roads or lower in the area:

  • Primary city: Kamo
  • Alt city: Whangarei


Excluding Motorways if a road is driven at open road speeds then it is classified as a rural road, and the Primary street details should have No City ticked, but an alternative name entered with the city which would be given in a postal address. There is no difference between Primary and Standard roads in this case.

Rural Example

Lets take a road on State Highway 3 as an example.

When not travelling on the Open Road (e.g. when not travelling at 100kph): Follow rules given above

When travelling on the Open Road (e.g. when the speed limit is 100kph):

  • Primary city: No City
  • Alt city: City name listed for postal purposes
