This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 24 May 2010.

The NZLRI is a spatial database containing about 100,000 polygons (map units), each of which describes a parcel of land in terms of five characteristics or attributes (rock, soil, slope, erosion, vegetation). This layer represents a GIS dissolve on the slope attribute of the NZLRI.

The New Zealand Fundamental Soil Layer originates from a relational join of features from two databases: the New Zealand Land Resource Inventory (NZLRI), and the National Soils Database (NSD). The NZLRI is a national polygon database of physical land resource information, including a soil unit. Soil is one in an inventory of five physical factors (including rock, slope, erosion, and vegetation) delineated by physiographic polygons at approximately 1:50,000 scale. The NSD is a point database of soil physical, chemical, and mineralological characteristics for over 1500 soil profiles nationally. A relational join between the NZLRI dominant soil and derivative tables from the NSD was the means by which 14 important soil attributes were attached to the NZLRI polygons. Some if these attributes originate from exact matches with NSD records, while others derive from matches to similar soils or professional estimates.

NOTE: There has been a change in the way the S-map is being made available to users. The S-map primary map layer of soil classes (i.e. delineated areas that are labelled with the soil family name) is no longer freely available to commercial users. Access to this data and associated soil attribute data for commercial use is by negotiation - go to at S-map - or contact Graeme Anderson (andersong@landcareresearch.co.nz).

This layer is a "dissolved" representation of the soil drainage attribute for S-map previously available as a lookup table.It is available for non-commercial use under a creative commons licence (CC-BY-NC-ND).

Soil drainage is a relatively simple classification of the soil profile that describes the likelihood of seasonal wetness. It is based on the occurrence within specific depths of redox segregation and low chroma colours indicative of waterlogging and reduction (Webb and Lilburne, 2011).

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 13 Oct 2011.

The PRISM instrument is carried on the Japanese ALOS satellite and has three sensors that provide forward, nadir, and aft-looking views of the terrain. The forward and aft views can be combined to give stereo coverage with approximately a one-to-one base-to-height ratio, which is almost ideal for generating terrain information. The nominal spatial resolution of the ALOS-PRISM imagery is 2.5m in the forward, nadir and aft directions.

Stereo imagery has been acquired of a region in Wanganui/Manawatu area of the North Island of New Zealand. This area is currently being studied for automated soil mapping, using a variety of technologies.

This DEM represents a draft version to demonstrate progress on DEM generation from PRISM. Further developments in processing, calibration and validation are required before production of acceptable DEMs is possible.

Some if these attributes originate from exact matches with NSD records, while others derive from matches to similar soils or professional estimates. This layer contains best available, as at 2000, profile available water (PAW) data which estimates total available water for the soil profile to a depth of 0.9 m, or to the potential rooting depth (whichever is the lesser). Values are weighted averages over the specified profile section (0-0.9 m) and are expressed in units of mm of water.

LENZ - Induration (Soil Hardness)

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 13 Oct 2011.

Induration data layer used in the creation of Land Environments of New Zealand (LENZ) classification. The classification layers have been made publicly available by the Ministry for the Environment (see data.mfe.govt.nz/layers/?q=LENZ for to access these layers).

Induration is a measure of how hard the soil is and is quantified by how much force is needed to break the soil. The data defines the induration based on the soil information (from the NZLRI) and the mapped parent material. This induration data layer is differentiated into five classes, Non-indurated (Class 1), Very weakly indurated (2), Weakly indurated (3), Strongly indurated (4), Very strongly (5). The class defined as "0" signifies areas where there are no soil attributes recorded (i.e. high peaks of the Southern Alps). Additional details such as discussion about the accuracy and reliability of the LENZ soil layers and the technical definitions of the categories in this layer are defined in the attached LENZ Technical Guide.
