The New Zealand Land Cover Database (LCDB) is a multi-temporal, thematic classification of New Zealand's land cover. It contains 33 mainland classes (35 including the offshore Chatham Islands). The classification has evolved from version to version but backward compatibility has been maintained. Geographic features are described by a polygon boundary, a land cover code, and a land cover name at each of four nominal time steps; summer 1996/97, summer 2001/02, summer 2008/09, and summer 2012/13. The data set is designed to complement in theme, scale and accuracy, Land Information New Zealand’s 1:50,000 topographic database. LCDB is suitable for use in national and regional state-of-environment monitoring, forest and shrubland inventory, biodiversity assessment, trend analysis and infrastructure planning. The classification used in LCDB v4.1 is presented in the document 'LCDBClassesAtVersion4.1.pdf' and a table correlating LCDB classes over all four LCDB versions is presented in the document 'LCDBClassCorrelations.pdf'. Both of these documents are available as an attachment to this dataset in the LRIS portal (lris.scinfo.org.nz/) and on the LCDB project site (www.lcdb.scinfo.org.nz). LCDB v4.1 was released in July 2015 and includes corrections to all time steps 1996/97, 2001/02, 2008/09 and 2012/13. A description of work undertaken for this release (including that in all earlier releases) is presented in the Lineage section. Of particular note at 4.1 is the re-mapping of Chatham Islands - first mapped at version 2, but then not continued through versions 3.0, 3.3, and 4.0 because of resource constraints. “EditAuthority” and "EditDate" are attributes, maintained since version 3.0 to indicate authorship and nominal date of polygon mapping, edit or change. The data is referenced to the Chatham Islands Transverse Mercator 2000 projection (CITM2000) which uses the NZ Geodetic Datum 2000 (NZGD2000). Errors in the data due to misclassification (not changes since mapping) or poor delineation can be reported to Landcare Research for inclusion in the next release using the online feedback mechanisms in lris.scinfo.org.nz/.

ArcGIS layer file for LCDB - this may be used most reliably if you load the downloaded data into ArcGIS, right click and select properties, make sure symbology is set to categorical and then click on the folder to import the symbology from this file. You'll need to make sure the symbology is using the correct field (class_2012).

Vegetative Cover Map of New Zealand

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 21 May 2015.

The 1:1,000,000 scale Vegetative Cover Map of New Zealand is the first vegetation survey which can be applied nationally for planning, research, and education. It optimises the cartographic potential of the vegetation information available in the early 1980s and provides a historical record which will aid in future analyses of vegetative cover and land utilisation. The map classification recognises 47 Vegetative Cover Classes identified by alphanumeric code and 17 Vegetative Cover Elements identified (only on the printed map) by symbols and patterns. The map is published as two sheets 730mm x 880mm covering the three principal islands of New Zealand and all offshore islands within 100km of the coast. The map was accompanied by a 153 page, illustrated, book which discusses New Zealand's vegetation and describes the 47 classes.

The book to accompany this dataset is available as an epub from:
mebooks.co.nz/index.php?route=product/product&prod... .

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 07 Apr 2015.

The soil inventory survey of Wallace County, Southland was mapped at 1:50,000 scale and covers approximately 700,000 hectares of a total of 965,600 hectares. Within 6 physiographic regions, soils have been separated by differences in morphology, drainage and parent materials into 132 soil mapping units. Soils have been correlated to South Island soil sets and classification of soils for land use are provided in the attribute table.

This 1986 soil survey has been superceded in lowland areas by Topoclimate South (1998-2001) and S-map (2014) data.

Threatened Environment Classification look up table. Join this table with the TEC/LENZ grid using grid value and the LENZlvl4_no numeric code in the look up table to achieve correct relational join.

This table shows for each of the 500 LENZ level IV environments (identified by name and number) the percent of land area with indigenous cover remaining in 2002, 2008 and 2012 (labelled Nat02Pct, Nat08Pct, Nat12Pct; using satellite imagery of the corresponding timestamps as classified in LCDB4), and the percent of land area protected for natural heritage protection in 2004 and 2012 (labelled Prot02Pct.1c, Prot12Pct). It also provides the Threatened Environment Classification categories for 2002 (TEC02.Class, classified using the Nat02Pct and Prot02Pct.1c values provided), and the Threatened Environment Classification 2012 categories (TEC12.Class, classified using the Nat12Pct and Prot12Pct values provided).
