This dataset is the land inventory and Land use capability output from the MPI SLMACC Northland project. It is derived from raster data through a series of modelling steps based on field data collected at over 400 observation points. Raster maps are then subjected to segmentation processing to create polygons that are assigned inventory attribute values based on zonal statistics from the original raster datasets. The majority of mapping is carried out by automated processing, the exceptions currently being erosion mapping and parent material (because of scale of available source information). Forestry 300 Index and Net Profit data is derived from modelled surfaces provided by SCION. Land Use Capability is assigned according to a set of rules defined by an expert.
