This data set (LCDB v3.3 Change) is a mask of non temporal changes made between LCDB v3.3 and the previous version (LCDB v3.0) and temporal change between the 2001 and 2008 timesteps. The non-temporal changes include errors in the earlier mappings and linework refinement, including reversal of over-smoothed hand-drawn linework in v3.0. Errors were identified from; a review of low producing grassland in the South Island, updates from MfE's Kyoto Land Use maps, checks of the dating of v3.0 mapped change, and feedback from users. An “EditDate” and “Authority” attribute are available in this layer indicating the date and source of the change for both non-temporal and temporal changes mapped. The Authority attribute indicates who (or who's dataset) identified the change. Note, where minor line-work improvements were applied using automated processes, the EditDate and Authorify have not been changed (but the “NonTemporal” attribute is still set true). This layer was produced with a tolerance of 50cm as a zero tolerance generates slivers too small for the portal software to project correctly. Funding is from the Ministry for Science and Innovation under contract CO9X1101, which was contributed to by the Ministry for the Environment. The Department of Conservation and individual regional councils and territorial authorities have made significant in kind contributions by checking the draft mapping for their areas of interest.

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 28 May 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 the best available data (as at 2000) of Profile Readily Available Water (PRAW) which estimates water readily available to plants 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.

This layers contains data for pH of the soil, a measure of the acidity or alkilinity of the soil, which taken with other factors such as base saturation and CEC gives an indication of soil fertility.

This layer contains best available data (as at 2000) for soil salinity which is measured as percent soluble salts (g/100g soil). High salinity is detrimental effects on plant growth and yield, can reduce water quality and soil erosion. Salinity is an important land degradation problem.
