Meshblock 2019 (Centroid True) is the true centroid point layer for the major released version of the annually released Meshblock (MB) boundaries for 2019.

The "true" centroid is the centre of mass of that polygon, such that if some flat substance of uniform thickness and density were cut into the shape of that polygon, then that object would balance at the centroid. The centroid is a useful way of summarizing the location of a set of polygons as points, particularly when used for comparative analysis.

Note that the centroid could potentially fall outside the meshlock polygon, depending on the shape of the polygon. The dataset contains the EASTING and NORTHING attributes of the centroid point in NZGD2000 New Zealand Transverse Mercator (EPSG:2193) and LATITUDE and LONGITUDE of the centroid point in decimal degrees in WGS1984 (EPSG:4326) projection. Non-digitised meshblocks cannot have a centroid.

This dataset was first added to Stats NZ Geographic Data Service on 03 Dec 2018.

This dataset is the definitive set of the meshblock (MB) inside centroid point layer for the major released version of the annually released meshblock boundaries as at 1 January 2019.

The "inside" centroid is a point which always falls inside each meshblock polygon as this is often desirable in some users cases. The placement of the point is typically in the widest part of the polygon. The algorithms used are proprietary to ESRI and are related to label placement.

Note that the "inside" centroid is NOT always the same as the center of gravity ("true" centroid) of the polygon as in some situations the true centroid may fall outside the meshblock geometry. The dataset contains the EASTING and NORTHING attributes of the centroid point in NZGD2000 New Zealand Transverse Mercator (EPSG:2193) and LATITUDE and LONGITUDE of the centroid point in decimal degrees in WGS1984 (EPSG:4326) projection.

Territorial Authority 1995 is based on Meshblock 1996 as there is no digital pattern available for Meshblock 1995. Meshblocks are the lowest level building block geography and are aggregated to form higher geographies such as territorial authority, wards, statistical area 1 etc.. From the meshblock pattern,Territorial Authority 1995 was dissolved using the dissolve tool in the Arc GIS suite.
