Urban Area 2014 (clipped)

This dataset is the definitive set of urban area boundaries for 2014 as defined by Statistics New Zealand.

Urban areas are statistically defined areas with no administrative or legal basis. Urban area populations are defined internationally as towns with 1000 people or more.

There is a three part hierarchal sub-division of urban areas into:

  • Main Urban Areas
  • Secondary Urban Areas
  • Minor Urban Areas

As at 1st July 2007, Digital Boundary data became freely available.

This generalised version has been simplified for rapid drawing and is designed for thematic or web mapping purposes.
