Nau Mai Haere mai - Welcome
This website is primarily intended to help Māori land owners and managers to find out more about the physical characteristics, constraints and potential of their Māori land blocks. To use this site either type the registered name of your land block in the search box above or using the map, zoom to the location of your land block and click on the land block's boundary. We welcome your thoughts and comments on the design of this tool.
How do I find a place or a land block?
There are three ways to find and query your Māori land blocks:
- Firstly you could type the registered name of the land block (such as "Rangitoto A 24B") into the search box at the top of the page. Any parcels found which contain the search term in their title will be displayed on the search results page. Clicking on the search result link for a parcel will take you to the details page for that parcel.
- Secondly, you can use the map controls (or mouse controls) to zoom in and move around the map. When you have found the land parcel you want to query, click on it to learn more about it.
- Finally, if you do not know the registered name or exact location you can also type the general locality of the land block (e.g. "Rotorua") and any New Zealand places which contain the search term will also be displayed on the search results page. Clicking on the search result link for a place will take you to a locality map where you can use the map controls to locate the land parcel you wish to query.
Important notes on this version of the tool...
This website is an updated prototype version of a Māori land visualisation tool developed by Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research from work carried out between July 2009 and July 2012 under contract to and in partnership with Te Puni Kōkiri.
