This article explains how you can locate the correct address or appellation to search for.

Search does not return any / desired result for address or appellation

1) Go to - This is where we source site information from.

2) Confirm the ‘NZ Primary Land Parcels’ Map is added (this should already be selected following the link above).

3) Locate the parcel of land you are after, either by using the 'find address or place' search or, if that doesn't work, you can navigate on the map viewer to the target parcel of land

4) Click on the parcel. This will bring up the appellation for the parcel which is the most reliable way to locate a site (noting that sometimes appellations and addresses appear in slightly different forms from different sources).

5) Copy this appellation and paste it into the Rico Subject Site Search.
