Hi,

We are planning to develop a website.
For this we need New Zealand street addresses, business categories and sub-categories etc.

We want to know, from where can we get legally the database/soft copy of New Zealand street addresses, business categories and sub-categories. We are happy to buy but don't know where can we get these information.

One more question: We want to put the addresses of public places e.g. Railway stations, bus stations, public toilets etc. Again, where can we buy these information? We also need to know, whether it is legal to put such addresses on our website? or From where we need to take permission etc.

Thank you very much in advance.

Local councils or maybe yellow or a similar local directory listing company?

Sounds like Google Maps to me.

Thank you guys for reply.
Will google provide the data? I think they just redirect/point to map.

Zenbu? (http://www.zenbu.co.nz/)

Talk to them nicely - they are very helpful.

NZ post can provide databases for this, although it'll cost you.

Using an API service (e.g. from Google) may be a better bet, although the downside of that is you can't use it offline, and it doesn't contain full postcode information.
