QuickMap®  Verified data FAQ

Where does QuickMap® data come from?

The main source of Data in QuickMap® is the Department of Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), Local Authorities, Headway Systems, Department of Statistics, Ministry of Education and REINZ. 

Other sources include DigitalGlobe, Precision Aerial Photography and various online systems.

 

How is the data Verified?

We match similar data from multiple sources to isolate and correct irregularities.

Different organisations record information at different stages in the life of a property, and by cross matching their data, we have been able to identify potential errors, and correct them. 

Missing information can be worse than incorrect information sometimes, because you may not be aware something is missing. Where information such as "Who owns this property" is missing, we normally complete the picture. LINZ will confidently tell you who owns a title, because after all, they are the authorative source, but they can only connect it to the Survey System 78% of the time. This means they can only draw it on a map 78% of the time. We can do this 98%, which is the best match in the country.

In other cases, we enable you to verify the data yourself. An example of this is where we report the sale information of a given property from REINZ, the Local Authority or Headway Systems in the same report. If the sale data matches, you know you can trust it.  Our match to REINZ data is 94% which is the best in the country. This allows you to recognise when data entry errors have occurred, and avoid using incorrect data.

We also run a lot of sanity checks on data to make sure it is reasonable. The first time we ran these checks, we discovered over 20,000 properties that others have matched to the wrong title/owner. 

 

How reliable is the Verified QuickMap® data?

We believe QuickMap® data is the most reliable source of Property Information in New Zealand. We cannot gauranteee the data is correct, because it is not our data.  We are confident however, that the data we provide is the most likely to be the most correct of any provider.

If you find an error in the data, we are keen to hear about it. Please Email support@quickmap.co.nz or phone toll free on 0800 145554 with any suspected errors.  We will either correct this ourselves, or forward it onto the applicable agency responsible for maintaining that data.
