Available map layers (16)

All NZ Topographic Baselayers (no cartographic text) (topobasemap_notext)

Landcare Research's topographic base layer, with no cartographic text. Contains data sourced from LINZ. The map comprises terrain, hydrography, transport infrastructure, settlements, coastline and coastal features of New Zealand.

ECOSAT Landcover Terrain (landscape_eco_painted_relief)

This landcover terrain layer was produced using in-house 15m resolution Digital Elevation Model data in combination with ECOSAT landcover data.

Topographic Coastline Polygons (coastpoly)

This layer contains coastline & islands from the LINZ 1:50,000 NZTopo database. Coastline is based upon: Mean High Water Mark around North Island, South Island and Stewart Island. Area of dry or relatively dry land surrounded by water or low wetland. Original scale 1:50,000.

Transport (transport)

Topographic transport features includes rail, all roads, tracks and highway shields. Data sourced from LINZ NZTopo database.

Most intensive, sustainable land-use possible (lri_phys_sustain)

Classification of land according to it's suitability to the most intensive, physically-sustainable land use possible. This classification is based on the New Zealand Land Resource Inventory (NZLRI) Land Use Capability (LUC) rating. The data in this layer was collected over an extended period. Most of South Island was mapped between 1971 and 1979. In the North island Northland was mapped between 1985-1990, Wellington between 1987-1992, Marlborough between 1989-1993 and Gisborne East Coast between 1995-1998. The rest of the North Island was mapped between 1971 and 1979.

Observed Erosion Severity (lri_observed_erosion)

Present and potential erosion are significant factors for land management and the environmental and economic sustainability of the land. Erosion is classified by type (e.g., sheet, soil slip or gully) and by severity. Erosion Severity is classified from negligible to extreme, but because of the varying nature of the erosion processes sometimes severity refers to percent area coverage of erosion, sometimes by size of erosion features in hectares, and in the case of stream bank erosion by length and lateral extent of erosion features. Erosion severity can be viewed as a generic indication of severity for all types using just the short legend below, or needs to be considered in terms of a specific erosion type with the long legend modified accordingly.

Water (water)

Topographic water layer includes lakes, lagoons, ponds and rivers, streams and drains. Also includes areas of shingle. Contains data sourced from LINZ and other sources.

Land Cover Database Version 4.1 - 2012 / 2013 (lcdb_lcdb4)

The LCDB is a thematic classification of land cover and land use classes. The current version LCDB v4.1 contains 33 mainland classes designed to be compatible with earlier LCDB versions. The polygon features contain a code and boundary representing the land cover type at each of four periods; summer 1996/97, summer 2001/02, summer 2008/09 and summer 2012/13. The data set was designed to be compatible in scale and accuracy with Land Information New Zealand's 1:50,000 topographic database. This layer covers the summer 2012/13 period.

FSL New Zealand Soil Classification (fsl_nzsc_groups)

The New Zealand Soil Classification (NZSC) was developed in the 1980s. It is split into four levels of classification - orders, groups, subgroups and soilforms. The new classification grew out of the New Zealand Genetic Soil Classification and, where possible, preserved its useful features.

Land Cover Database Version 3 - 2008 / 2009 (lcdb_lcdb3)

The LCDB is a thematic classification of land cover and land use classes. The current version LCDB v4.1 contains 33 mainland classes designed to be compatible with earlier LCDB versions. The polygon features contain a code and boundary representing the land cover type at each of four periods; summer 1996/97, summer 2001/02, summer 2008/09 and summer 2012/13. The data set was designed to be compatible in scale and accuracy with Land Information New Zealand's 1:50,000 topographic database. This layer covers the summer 2008/09 period.

Rock Group (lri_rock_group)

Polygon layer delineating physiographic areas of relatively homogenous surface and near-surface lithology (rock type). Derived from stereo aerial photograph interpretation, field verification and measurement as part of the 1:63 360/1:50 000 scale New Zealand Land Resource Inventory.

Land Cover Database Version 2 - 2001 / 02 (lcdb_lcdb2)

The LCDB is a thematic classification of land cover and land use classes. The current version LCDB v4.1 contains 33 mainland classes designed to be compatible with earlier LCDB versions. The polygon features contain a code and boundary representing the land cover type at each of four periods; summer 1996/97, summer 2001/02, summer 2008/09 and summer 2012/13. The data set was designed to be compatible in scale and accuracy with Land Information New Zealand's 1:50,000 topographic database. This layer covers the summer 2001/02 period.

Land Cover Database Version 1 - 1996 / 1997 (lcdb_lcdb1)

The LCDB is a thematic classification of land cover and land use classes. The current version LCDB v4.1 contains 33 mainland classes designed to be compatible with earlier LCDB versions. The polygon features contain a code and boundary representing the land cover type at each of four periods; summer 1996/97, summer 2001/02, summer 2008/09 and summer 2012/13. The data set was designed to be compatible in scale and accuracy with Land Information New Zealand's 1:50,000 topographic database. This layer covers the summer 1996/1997 period.

Slope (lri_slope)

Slope is recorded as one of seven slope classes based on field measurement of dominant slope or can be derived from a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of suitable accuracy and precision.

Land Use Capability (lri_luc_main)

The Land Use Capability system categorizes land into eight classes according to its long-term capability to sustain one or more productive uses based on physical limitations and site specific management needs. Productive capacity depends on physical qualities of the land, soil and environment. Differences between ideal and actual land qualities may be regarded as limitations which will affect productivity and land management options. Limitations considered in the LUC include: susceptibility to erosion, steepness of slope, susceptibility to flooding, liability to wetness or drought, salinity, depth, texture, structure and nutrient supply from the soil, and climate.

Cartographic Text (text)

Cartographic text includes data from the LINZ 1:50,000 NZTopo database: cartographic text split into 2 datasets, one for large scale, one for medium scale; city & placenames for small scale; road highway shields.
