This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 07 Jun 2010.

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. This layer contains topsoil gravel content attributes. The classes originate from and are described more fully in Webb and Wilson (1995).

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 26 Feb 2018.

There has been a change in the way the S-map is being made available to users. The S-map primary map layer ofsoil 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 - please contact Graeme Anderson. This layer is a "dissolved" representation of the soil depth attribute for S-map soilspreviously available as a lookup table.It is available for non-commercial use under a creative commons licence (CC-BY-NC-ND).Soil depth (Webb & Lilburne 2011) is defined according to a traditional agronomic concept of soil depth (Taylor & Pohlen 1970). In a practical sense, it can be thought of as the depth to a layer that makes augering or digging difficult. Soil depth is identified as the depth to:· A very stony horizon (more than 35% stones by volume)· A soft or hard rock surface· Shattered rock· A pan, as defined in Hewitt (2010)· Firm consistence, together with massive or gross structure. Note that while the layer defining soil depth may cause some restriction in root penetration, it does not necessarily define the base of the potential rooting depth.The dominant depth classes aredefined as:Deep(> 100 cm)Moderately Deep(45 cm - 100 cm)Shallow(20 cm - 45 cm)Very Shallow(

LENZ - Soil age

Added
28 May 2010

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 28 May 2010.

Soil age 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).

This data layer is a classification of two broad soil age classes based on their membership in the New Zealand Soil Classification. This layer describes soil age using morphological features associated with soil development rather than criteria based on chronological ages. As a consequence, soils classified as recent in dry cool environment may be much older than recent soils from warm, wet environments. Only two classes of soil age, Younger (1) and Older (2). 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.

Reserve Potassium

Added
02 Nov 2010

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 02 Nov 2010.

Reserve potassium (Kc) is a measure how much potassium is available to plants. There are three potassium pools: dissolved, extractable, and reserve potassium. Potassium (K) is continuously drawn from the extractable to the dissolved pool when it is used by plants, and likewise from the reserve pool to the extractable pool. The reserve potassium is held in minerals in the soil such as mica. An example of the utility of this information is for organic farmers, who are not allowed to add potassium chloride to their soils (they can add potassium sulphate, but this is much more expensive). Class 3 for Kc will indicate where organic farming is practical. If you zoom in on the map and click on a soil area it will show the Kc class (pot class). The classes are:

0 No data
1 Low (0-0.3 cmolK/kg)
2 Medium (0.3-0.6 cmolK/kg
3 High (>0.6 cmolK/kg)
4 Lakes
5 Alpine
6 Urban

Soil texture profile is defined in Webb and Lilburne (2011). Texture can be specified as either a single texture or a compound texture profile.

Phosphate retention (P retention) is estimated as weighted averages for the upper part of the soil profile from 0-0.2 m depth, and expressed as a percentage. The classes are described more fully in Blakemore et al. (1987) and Webb and Wilson (1995).
