land information new zealand is a government org that holds data on
roads and properties for the entirety of new zealand. they have
recently given permission to use their data sets in osm, with a caveat
that we include an attribution statement:

"Contains data sourced from Land Information New Zealand. Crown
Copyright reserved. Land Information New Zealand gives no warranty in
relation to the data, including its accuracy, reliability and
suitability and accepts no liability whatsoever in relation to any
loss, damage or other costs relating to the use of any data, any
compilations, derivative works or modifications of the data".

this is a huge data set, with a lot of very useful information. it
will immediately bring road coverage (currently very poor) for the
entire country up to 100%, and may include property information for
every land title in the country, which then opens the door for other
open data sets, such as (business listings)

the key is the attribution

at present there is no method for attributing data in osm, so this is
a call to all:

a technical solution is sought, to display the corresponding
information whenever linz-sourced data is being viewed.

suggestions and comments, please
