This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 01 May 2018.

This layer was derived from three existing data layers: the Land Cover Database 2 (LCDB2) (MfE 2002); the Land Use Map (LUM) from the Land Use Carbon Analysis System (MfE 2008; Dymond et al. 2012); and EcoSat Forests (Shepherd et al. 2002). Indigenous forest classes from EcoSat Forests were combined with classes from LCDB2 to form basic ecosystems classes. Where indigenous forest was mapped by LCDB2, the type of forest was determined from the EcoSat Forests layer. The eight forest types of EcoSat Forests were reduced to three basic types: beech forest; podocarp-broadleaved forest; and mixed beech and podocarp-broadleaved forest. To produce a recent 2008 layer the LUM was used to update indigenous and exotic forest changes since 2002. The mapping was performed using 15 m pixels, which is equivalent to a mapping scale of approximately 1:50 000.

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 24 Oct 2015.

This raw aerial photography covering 23,000 ha of the Desert Road stretch of SH 1 running through the Central Plateau is provided to members of the Desert Rd Invasive Legume Control Group so that they can locate plants and prioritize areas where ground control is required.

Broom produces chemicals that prevent native seedlings establishing and then forms dense thickets able to shade out all other regenerating plants. This can occur from the road edge right to the snow line.

Estimated image resolution = 0.4 m

This is a binary mask layer for the Earning Capacity Rental project - identifying all areas that by definition (forested or water body) will have BASE carrying capacity set to zero (0 SU/ha). All other areas are set to one (unity). The final BASE carrying capacity is derived by multiplying the result of the regression models by this binary mask leavibng model values either unchanged or reset to zero. For use with both Model 1 and Model 2.

This layer provides a transformation of environmental layer to best predict plant compositional turnover. Generalized Dissimilarity Modelling was used to produce a model of biotic composition in relationship to environment and biogeography. This model was used to transform and scale environmental layers to predict community composition. These transformed environmental layers can be used to predict commmunity composition changes, and to classify New Zealand into areas of similar biotic composition. The biotic data used for this model include all vascular plant taxa from NVS recce data and estimated community compositions from pollen data.
