Geographic and property information are both used effectively to address key challenges for New Zealand, improve outcomes for Māori, and deliver significantly higher-value public services (national and local).

Focus areas

  1. Data and use
  2. Connecting data
  3. Reporting

 

1. Data and use

Opening up key datasets for public access.

Priorities 1 - 2 years

  • “Key datasets” have been identified and are accessible to key users that need them. (Operational)
  • Commercial model based on free and open public access to key datasets is agreed and understood by affected parties. (Functional)

Priorities 3 - 5 years

  • “Key datasets” are readily accessible and being used effectively. (Operational)
  • Commercial model is largely in effect. (Functional)
  • Agencies that can benefit most are building capacity of staff to effectively use data. (Functional)

Extent of change

Major
Focus on “key datasets” is major change; commercial model will be controversial.

 

2. Connecting data

Linking, aggregating and integrating.

Priorities 1 - 2 years

  • Key national datasets are linked and in wide public use. (Operational)
  • Standards for interoperability of key datasets are operational. (Operational)
  • Core property data is integrated and publicly trialled. (Functional)

Priorities 3 - 5 years

  • Key datasets are linked to other national public data through a national data framework. (Functional)
  • Geographic and property data are widely interoperable. (Functional)
  • Property data is integrated and publicly trialled nationwide. (Functional)

Extent of change

Moderate
Work is under way, but outcome goes significantly further than currently envisaged.

 

3. Reporting

On nationally-important geographic and property information.

Priorities 1 - 2 years

  • National report programme for geographic and property data is approved and trialled for value. (Operational)

Priorities 3 - 5 years

  • National report programme is continued, modified or discontinued based on an evaluation of its value to users. (Operational)

Extent of change

Relatively minor
New activity, but fully within our control.
